Talent management in the most attractive and differentiated hotel companies

María Frontera, president of the FEHM (Hotel Business Federation of Mallorca) and moderator of the table “Vision CEOs (Rock & Roll)” celebrated in Hoteltrends Arena within the framework of Fitur 2024, he has stressed it from the first moment: “You overflow character, creativity, work capacity, innovation; You are very different profiles, very personal, but you have in common the desire to do and say things, you transmit a lot of yourself through your projects”. For this reason, there was a lot of interest in knowing how they attract and retain talent at Room Mate, OD Group and Concept Hotel Group.

For Marc Rahola, CEO of OD Group, “in our business model the product is the people. For this reason we must be attractive to the people who work with us, whom we call “the crew”so that they participate in the process, with an internal promotion plan.”

In his opinion, “we must continue reinventing ourselves to attract local talent and be able to continue competing”, given the difficulties of finding accommodation for staff in destinations like Ibiza. In fact, he has highlighted the implementation of the new Hospitality School of the island, which was born with the objective of “becoming one of the two or three most powerful due to its level of training, in order to create talent at home”.
