In an industry known for its high turnover, First Hospitality Group Inc. (FHG) has employed some creative ways to combat the ins and outs of the hospitality industry. “Live Free, Drive Free with FHG” is the exciting incentive program used to reward employees with perfect attendance. Hourly employees from FHG’s thirty managed hotels who have achieved perfect attendance throughout the year are invited to an elaborate awards dinner where one lucky employee, drawn out of a hat, wins their choice of free rent or mortgage for a year or the use of a new, bright red, Ford Mustang convertible (including insurance & taxes) for a full year. This year FHG offered a new option: $10,000 toward the down payment of a new home for those who do not currently have a mortgage.
First Hospitality Group’s positive approach to employee relations has proven successful. This “Live Free Drive Free” promotion has lowered employee absentee rates by 75% over the past 5 years,” says Mr. Robert Habeeb, President and COO of FHG Inc. “Special events and recognition programs coupled with healthy lines of communication have lead to higher employee approval ratings, which in turn increases guest satisfaction scores” adds Mr. Habeeb.
First Hospitality Group Inc., established in 1985 is an experienced hotel developer, owner and operator with a portfolio of over 30 hotels. FHG currently manages assets with the following franchise affiliations: Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites, Courtyard by Marriott, Springhill Suites by Marriott, Fairfield Inn & Suites, TownePlace Suites, Residence Inn, Holiday Inn, Wyndham, and Ramada Inns.
