It appears that Sage has lost their way.
Hiring and promoting individuals that lack talent, lack a connection with their team, and in some cases lack moral direction and values. They have continued employment of a GM with serious ethical issues, promoted leaders with recent disciplinary issues, looked the other way where there are professionalism concerns in their leadership and devalue the HR function at the property level. Meanwhile, they wonder why all of the work-horse managers and management talent leave their hotel. It is not only the money but the lack of belonging, decency and executive-level direction.
For a company that preaches Sage Values from Denver, they have lost their way in Nashville.
