The Business of Mentorship in Hospitality
"this has never been done before"
Hi3 operates on a multi-faceted business model designed to support its mission and benefit its members. The organization generates revenue through three primary sources: grants, individual donations, and employer memberships.
Employer memberships provide participating companies with valuable benefits, including access to a talent pipeline, exclusive event tickets, preferred pricing for sponsoring events and leadership camps, as well as access to Hi3's research and industry data and reports. Employers gain direct access to a steady stream of qualified and talented individuals, all of whom hold QHIC certificates, on a monthly and annual basis.
A portion of the revenue generated through employer memberships is shared with the independent Mentors, compensating them for their training efforts and the number of certifications or graduates they guide. Additional income is awarded to Mentors when their QHIC team members secure full-time employment, acknowledging the Mentors' unique and valuable expertise.
Employer members engage with Mentors, acting as a bridge between the employers and QHIC certificate holders. Mentors, supported by Hi3, facilitate informational interviews and introductions between employers and QHIC graduates, similar to how a talent booking agent represents a celebrity. Additionally, Hi3 provides comprehensive support to optimize the professional profiles of QHIC graduates, including their LinkedIn profiles, resumes, and cover letters, while also featuring them on the Hi3 membership page.
The Hi3 mentorship and support extends throughout the careers of QHIC graduates, facilitating their ongoing learning, industry engagement, and upward mobility. As they progress, QHIC graduates are encouraged to become Mentors themselves, building networks of team members they educate and engage. This collaborative effort, supported by Hi3, community leaders, and private donors, advances the hospitality industry together, shaping a brighter future for all involved.
