JDI Hospitality Executive Recruiting Services

Our rigorous search process starts by gaining a thorough understanding of the strategic goals of each client, the specific leadership roles and competencies needed to meet those goals, and the culture of the organization. The basic nature of the process of sourcing candidates is to identify where the talent is, directly contact and fully qualify them, and if appropriate, introduce specific opportunities. We have developed a proprietary search methodology that allows us to identify the top talent, and JDI specializes in building our client companies by delivering the top 10% of talent across multiple functions in the Hospitality industry. Our candidates are found based on a methodology of ‘generalized recruiting’ where recruiters are constantly sourcing and contacting top talent within various levels of the best companies in the industry. This allows us to maintain a world-class network of talent which often shortens cycle time on searches due to the fact that there is already traction towards a qualified search plan – before the plan even starts. The trust established with candidates is evident in the fact that many of JDI’s candidates eventually have become clients, and many clients have continued to use our services for years.
