“Do or do not. There is no try.” Yoda
We believe that it’s our employees, who give life and meaning to the word “culture.”
We are very pleased that you decided to explore the world of Urbana Varro Hospitality and Urbana Hotels and Resorts. The hospitality industry is a dynamic industry that needs talented individuals who want to make a discernable difference in the workplace. Employees who work for our company are passionate about guest service – their positive attitudes permeate the workplace; it’s what our hotel guests call the “happy, happening vibe.”
Urbana Varro Hospitality Management Company believes there’s room for many at the proverbial inn. Whether you are on a career path or a life path of finding your bliss in a job “well done!” we strive to meet our employees’ expectations.
We are diverse and we are inclusive. All employees have a voice in our company.
Our company’s guiding tenant of hiring the right people, along with our cultural, service and technical training, results in an ever-present STELLAR!-focused environment. By encouraging personal (be yourself) and professional (be the best you) balance in a warm, high-integrity environment, our way of conducting business is a win-win for all.
We feel no one job is more important than any other job or jobs. Every single person’s job matters and when everyone understands this principle, a respectful and productive synergy is created.
What about our owners? Their business is our business, we think like they think. We teach “taking ownership” and “loving care” of the asset. We raise the bar – way up. We strive to over deliver until it becomes a habit. We ask our employees to take responsibility for the success of the property and they know that what they do matters.
All of this adds up to value, profitability and making hospitality history.
