Winds of Change: Agile Staffing Strategies for Seasonal Vacation Rental Markets

Written byStaff


Maine is the state with the highest degree of staffing turnover during low and peak season months.

“Operators in highly seasonal markets need the flexibility to staff up and down as travel demand dictates. Extenteam is here to help.”

With the change of seasons comes a change of pace for many vacation rental managers, particularly if you are operating in a highly seasonal market. 

Travel demand ebbs and flows throughout the year; operators must have the staffing in place to engage guests and to convert inquiries into reservations.

Nevertheless, the traditional method of hiring can be a labor and time-intensive process. Recruitment needs to start way ahead of busy season in order to make time for HR processing, onboarding and training.
