We are The Hospitalitist

Photo by Romy Vierenhalm   Elisabeth Hansen, Visual Lead bij The Hospitalitist, vinden wij op een zitzak naast de verwarming terwijl ze een kartonnen doos omtovert in een Innovation Box. “Iedereen heeft goede ideeën en ik hoop dat dit mensen stimuleert om hun ideeën of suggesties op te schrijven, zodat wij het kunnen uitproberen.” Elisabeth is continu bezig onze cultuur op de werkvloer innovatiever, creatiever en transparanter te maken.

SHARING IS CARING

Photo by Romy Vierenhalm. SHARING IS CARING   Het is dinsdagochtend 10 uur. Vanuit de gang hoor je de muziek van Rae & Christian `Happy`. Tijd voor het #10uurtje! Goedemorgen allemaal!

Digitalisering voor een grotere focus op de mens

Wat vinden talenten fijn? Welke profielen passen perfect bij welke partner? In de afgelopen jaren heeft The Hospitalitist een veelheid aan data verzameld die waardevolle inzichten kunnen opleveren. Omdat we hier het optimale uit willen halen, implementeren we binnenkort HRM-software waarmee we bepaalde workflows achter processen kunnen automatiseren. Door het digitaliseren van deze informatie winnen we aan kostbare tijd. En deze willen we besteden aan dát wat wij altijd het belangrijkst hebben gevonden: de mens. Meer automatisering, meer menselijk contact: een paradox? Digitaliseren om méér te focussen op het menselijke aspect: het klinkt je misschien wat vreemd in de oren. Toch is...

Sometimes you feel like you’re in over your head. How do you “fake it ‘til you make it”? What the Experts Say Feeling anxious about a new professional challenge is natural. In fact, imposter syndrome — the creeping fear that others will discover you aren’t as smart, capable, or creative as they think you are — is a lot more common than you might guess. The key to overcoming this she says, is “to trick yourself out of the state of self-doubt.” Faking it ‘til you make it’ is not about pretending to have skills you don’t, she adds. It’s “about pretending...

Here are a few tips which can help you to deal with or overcome stress or anxiety. Gather all the facts in an objective way Firstly, ask yourself what’s the worst that could possibly happen.

Crowdfunding your first business idea

Something different: Have a great business idea? Ever dreamed of creating a start up? But you have one problem; no money! Check out Crowdfunding!

There are many crowdfunding sites, however not all of them...
