Denihan is a premier owner and operator of luxury and boutique/lifestyle hotels that prides itself on being built by three generations and more than 50 years of family leadership. As a growing hospitality company across the U.S., we are continuously looking for top talent at all levels of the organization.
Denihan’s team members work in an environment that emphasizes caring, collaboration, and mutual respect. We know that work and fun can and do co-exist.
We believe strongly in the development of all of our team members and offer industry-leading opportunities for learning and growth. More than 10% of our associates have been with us for over 25 years; many of whom have grown to hold higher level positions within their hotel and the company. We think this says a lot about Denihan being a great place to work.
As a company, OUR MISSION is to improve every day and to delight customers by providing authentic, innovative and caring experiences.
Denihan’s commitment to hospitality applies not only to our guests, but to the neighborhoods and communities in which we do business. Our Corporate Social Responsibility platform is built on serving our communities and fostering sustainable and innovative environmental practices that are aligned with the values of our associates, our guests and our financial partners. We empower all of our associates to serve as local philanthropists through ongoing volunteer programs and charitable partnerships.
We believe in a culture of inclusion, opportunity and acceptance that reflects the diversity of our communities.
HOSPITALITY CAREER DEVELOPMENT
As a performance and growth-driven company, we recognize the value of developing and promoting our top talent throughout the organization. Denihan offers an industry-leading hotel career development platform that provides valuable learning programs to maximize performance and provide long-term career opportunities as we continue to expand into new markets. We maximize the use of online learning as well as the traditional classroom setting.
We offer internal courses on an ongoing basis on a variety of subjects, taught by our own experts. Classes include a rich variety of topics – from industry-related classes to those that fine-tune technical skills and enhance personal development. In addition to courses such as ‘Demystifying the P&L’ and compliance courses related to ensuring the health and welfare of all our associates, associates have the opportunity to learn more about such subjects as ‘Wines for the Holiday Table’ from Denihan’s Restaurant and Bar team, or ‘Defining your Personal Brand’. With a variety courses offered each month, our mission is to assist our teams on the path of their career development to the best of our ability.
Individual Development Planning
Denihan is committed to developing and retaining the most talented and superior associates available in the job market and last year, almost a quarter of our open positions were filled by current associates. To support our associates’ growth, we offer ongoing individual and career development planning for all associates with a focus on short term development as well as achieving long term career objectives. Managers and associates are assisted in developing strategies and using tools to map out a realistic path to achieving performance results and career aspirations.
Denihan recognizes strong leadership is critical to a successful business enterprise. Thus, we are committed to developing effective leadership by offering consistent talent management programs at all levels across the organization. One way we do this is through our Accelerated Leadership Programs (ALPS). These four programs (Transitioning to Management, First and Foremost, Leading Leaders, and Strategic Leadership) provide our managers the opportunity to develop their leadership abilities to positively influence and empower their people and drive Denihan to higher levels of performance and results. Whatever level of hotel management they hold, ALPS provide leaders with the insights, information and practical tools to strengthen and develop their effectiveness as leaders.
All full-time associates are eligible for tuition reimbursement after 1 year with the company. This reimbursement can be used for any course to improve skills in a present position or to help in an associate’s career development.
