Success Story: Kiikstart & the Birdsville Hotel

The Birdsville Hotel is regarded as an Australian Outback hospitality legend. Highly isolated, the hotel has set benchmarks for innovation and outback experiences for many years.

The Birdsville Hotel has a diverse customer base from 4WDadventurers, grey nomads, young families to people with private planes ticking off a bucket list experience.

Never one to rest on their laurels and accolades, the General Manager of the Birdsville Hotel, Jo Fort, reached out to Kiikstart to help take their back-end operations and customer experiences to the next level.

A key objective was creating an employer brand that could attract the best talent to this challenging and isolating environment to provide consistently high guest experiences both in the hotel and at major outback events throughout the year.

This required a review and re-design of how staff were recruited and new processes and systems to build talent and capability within the team throughout their employment.

Together we designed a new approach to recruitment processes and ongoing staff development that:

Supported and built upon the new outback hospitality strategy co-designed with Kiikstart.

Delivered a strong, consistent employer brand that reflected the businesses’s definition of high value work in a changing outback hospitality and tourism landscape.

Resulted in smarter recruitment processes that attracted a high calibre of staff.

Was responsive to the existing skill gaps within the team as well as the risks and threats that are present within outback hospitality environments, especially major events.

As a result, Birdsville Hotel created a modern, professional brand that was able to attract a diverse and skilled workforce to one of Australia’s most isolated, but iconic, regions.

In turn, the Birdsville Hotel, recorded its best event season that year with healthy and happy staff that were able to deliver in an extremely high-pressure environment. The region hosts iconic events such as the Birdsville Races and the Big Red Bash attracting thousands of people to an outback town that normally has a population of just 140 people.
