Hospitality is a skill that takes continuous reflection, empathy, and development – that’s why HotSchedules is joining employee training professionals from across the country at the CHART Conference in Albuquerque, NM from March 2-5. Dubbed the conference by trainers for trainers, CHART seeks to:
1. Prioritize Professional Development
So many trainers put others first – but how do you lead by example if you aren’t making time for your own growth? There are official CHART Competencies that will be awarded to attendees who complete job-role specific workshops and tracks.

According to LinkedIn, 94% of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their career. Lindsey-Moon Lenggenhager, Director of Learning and Development of Flix Brewhouse, leverages our talent development solution for Flix University, an ongoing training program built for their front and heart of house teams. The company has an Achievement-Based Compensation program to allow team members to work toward advancements through on-the-job performance and e-learning engagement. She attributes this program to strengthening Flix’s retention rate, especially during the holidays and summer months.
2. Provide a Networking-Palooza
Scratch deeper than the typical networking surface! Activities and interactions are curated to ensure attendees make high-quality connections that will bring value to their careers, but also their personal growth. Our favorite event to participate in is the service event.

Attendees will be able to share their personal journey with those just starting out in the industry. Do you remember the first hospitality experience that left a lasting impression on you?
