That’s why we treat them with the utmost respect, and foster an entrepreneurial spirit, where we allow our team to run their hotels as if they were the owners. At every level, we encourage our people to take ownership of their work and grow on their own terms. We don’t have many rules at First Hospitality Group; we simply provide our team of independent thinkers with the tools they need to succeed, and watch as they innovate and deliver outstanding results every time.
