For years, many hospitality organizations and clubs around the country have utilized and relied on foreign nationals to staff positions at their properties that have been difficult – and in many cases, impossible – to fill.  With unemployment now extremely high and U.S. workers suddenly potentially available, what is the future of foreign nationals and immigration as a whole for hotels, resorts, and clubs? 

There are many questions to consider in the days, weeks, and months ahead.  Will your property still need foreign nationals, and if so, is it possible?  Is immigration to the U.S. still allowed?  What should your organization do if it thinks it might still need foreign nationals to staff?  And what if you already employ a foreign national?

In this webinar, we will discuss and try to understand what is to come and ways to still utilize foreign nationals at your property successfully in the current environment.  This webinar is not to be missed if your organization employs foreign nationals or if you work in an area that has been historically difficult to staff for certain positions.
