Hollywood, Fla. (May 20, 2020) - FirstService Residential, North America's property management leader, has launched initiatives to provide employment for hospitality workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

While many hospitality brands have reduced or eliminated their workforce due to temporary closures caused by the pandemic, FirstService Residential is hiring displaced workers to meet the growing needs of its managed communities.

“Residential property management is an essential service and a fairly recession-resistant industry which makes it an attractive alternative for hospitality workers who lost their jobs during this challenging time,” said David Diestel, south region president, FirstService Residential.

With more than 2,500 managed communities across South Florida and a constant demand for staff, FirstService Residential has partnered with hospitality associations and local hotels to promote employment opportunities to their networks and ramped up recruitment efforts via a dedicated Career Source page on their website, virtual interviews and job fairs and collaboration with recruiting platforms.

As the nation continues to navigate through this unprecedented time, FirstService remains focused on its mission to make a difference, every day, in the communities they manage. In addition to keeping their communities staffed with the best talent in the industry, they are keeping them safe by providing masks, gloves and other Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).
