How We Do It

Energized employees, One of a kind experiences

People do their best when they are at their best. We find brilliant people, create high performing teams, design environments and training to help them thrive, then manage them seamlessly on the ground. The result – one-of-a-kind experiences delivered by energized, enthusiastic teams.

3 Pillars

People with presence.

We connect clients with characterful people. We call them people with presence. A glint in their eye. A ready smile. They’ve just got it. From recruitment to training, team design to community building, we treat our people well and support them generously, giving them everything they need to create a brilliant time for guests.

Global knowledge.

We don’t just keep pace with the cultural world. We help build it. Through organizational design and executive search, we’ve shaped world leading organizations. Placing the people who become custodians, developing organizational culture from the ground up. No one knows the world of culture like BLR.

Local experience.

When it comes to boots on the ground, we’re as practiced in managing experiences as we are recruiting and training people for them. From concept to execution, we work very closely with clients to get them exactly what they need. For us, it’s personal, and it shows in the quality of our relationships, and how long they endure.
