A portfolio of Extended Stay America hotels was struggling with making decisions regarding staffing, both in terms of the overall number of employees and their roles within the organizations. In addition, the portfolio had no clear direction and visibility into operations, so knowing where to focus from a labor standpoint was exceedingly difficult.
