Learn. Perform. Achieve! Helping You Drive Performance through Learning – July 2022

This month we highlight content and opportunities for leaders and managers to improve the performance of their team. In addition, we outline additional new content that is available and highlight training to help improve your skills as a manager and leader of your hotel. Plus, we are pleased to announce May’s HOST and EMBARK completions and acknowledge the achievement for those who are now operator certified.


ChoiceU LIVE! From Convention Video Series

Choice University has released all ChoiceU LIVE videos (18 in total) that were conducted at the 2022 Choice Hotels Annual Convention in Las Vegas. The property can discover new and updated information on a variety of topics presented by Choice leaders and subject matter experts all designed to help drive business to the property.


ChoiceU.com Student Account Status

From the User Section under the Active column properties can quickly view a User’s account status and their last login. Each User will have a colored icon next to their Username. When the admin hoovers over the icon one of the four statuses will appear.

Blue (User has logged into ChoiceU.com in the last 30 days)
Green (User has logged into ChoiceU.com in the last 31-90 Days)
Yellow (User has logged into ChoiceU.com in the last 91-180 Days)
Orange (User has logged in to ChoiceU.com in the last 181-364 days)

If an employee is no longer with the property the GM has the option to change their status to Red (INACTIVE) or a User will become INACTIVE for not logging in to ChoiceU.com for 365 days.

It is important to have students/employees sign on regularly to ChoiceU.com to keep their accounts active and keep your hotel compliant with any brand standards that apply. So we encourage a regular practice of signing onto ChoiceU.com.
