Tina Resch, Liesberg: Be or become a good employer in the eyes of your seasonal staff! If they are happy with your work - they will attract each other by word of mouth (social media)…

Neil Dwyer, Carnaval Entertainments, LLC:We try to attract and retain our seasonal staff by offering great benefits, rewards and incentives but most of all remembering

that we are in the entertainment business so it has to be fun (the more fun our teams have the more fun our guests have), it really shows and we have a great reputation for being a great place to work.

Dorthe Dinesen, Tivoli: Tivoli is a very strong brand in Denmark and many people want to work here. We attract employees by being a good workplace with orderly conditions and

very satisfied employees. We offer our employees many activities that strengthen their pride in doing a good job and the community feeling so the employees want to come back season after season and they recommend the workplace to others. We re-employ over 80 percent of our seasonal staff.

Figures of Fun 25%

increase in the number of buyers attending IAPPA Expo Asia

Vicky Thorpe, LEGOLAND Windsor Resort:We asked our employees exactly what they want and need from working with us and then

in association with How do you attract good seasonal staff?

looked at what we actually have on offer. We created over 300 permanent variable hour contracts to give staff the flexibility required of their hours with the stability of a permanent, year round contract. We increased our pay rates soacross the board we were offering on average around 30% higher than the National Minimum Wage. And of course we still offer our staff 20 free tickets a year to use at any of our Merlin Attractions - a firm favourite benefit!

Pat Jones, Carowinds: We focus on paying well, rewarding returners, and being sure to acknowledge successes.

Chris Thorpe, Six Flags Darien Lake: Competitive rates, upward mobility, flexible schedules, great training, and fun on the job.

Rick Howarth, Six Flags America: One of the best ways is to ask your existing top performers to recruit on your behalf. Good people tend to know other good

people, after all. To add some enticement we will periodically offer cash incentives to current Team Members that bring us new people who stay on the team a certain minimum number of days.
