  • According to a recent report, U.S. hotels collected record amounts of resort fees and other surcharges totaling $2.47 billion in 2015, leading to main stream media coverage with sensational headlines such as “Hidden hotel resort fees not going away any time soon." The purpose of this webinar is to provide a balanced perspective regarding resort fees and other surcharges at U.S. hotels.

    The webinar will also explore the potential effects of what could be described as extreme increases in the minimum wage on the U.S. hotel industry. The Obama presidential administration as well as several large municipalities are actively seeking, or recently passed laws that increase the minimum wage by an extreme amount. The webinar will quantify the forecast effect on the U.S. hotel industry.

Fleet industry expert Annette Correll will reveal how GPS-based fleet management technology can help your organization cut fuel usage, control repair and labor costs, lower insurance premiums, and more.
  • When there’s work to be done and money to be made, you’ve probably heard the cavalier statement, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” Of course, everyone experiences the clutches of fatigue at some point – it’s a force of nature, after all. But it’s also an invisible threat to operations, because succumbing to fatigue is perceived as a weakness and many people don’t, or can’t, admit when they’re fatigued. As a result, many incident reports often cite “operator error, “unknown human factor” or some other ambiguous or inaccurate root cause.

    Measuring this invisible threat starts by asking five essential questions. Join this webinar event to learn how to determine your scope of risk, so that you can build a fatigue risk management system that reduces incidents and optimizes operations.
