Team USHG: A Blog Highlighting our Family

Team USHG is a place for you to tell us a little more about yourself! We’ll share your stories externally on the USHG website. What should you write about? Here are some thought starters, but feel free to take it in another direction!

  • Recipes

    • Home Chef Friendly (cups/tbsp. vs. metric); can be from a menu in your business or your favorite recipe that your mom always made. Include a backstory and explanation of why this recipe is important to you.

  • My USHG Career Story

    • Have you worked in a variety of positions across USHG before coming into your current position? Do you have an interesting story about how you first got to USHG? Where you grew up and when you moved to NYC?

  • Travel

    • Did you go on an amazing trip recently? Tell us about it – did you have a favorite dish or drink from the trip? Where’s it from – insider tips from restaurant industry team members are definitely in demand

  • Day in the Life/Favorite Restaurants

    • What does your typical day off look like? What are your favorite places to spend time? What are your favorite bars/restaurants and why do you love them? Any hidden gems we should know about?

  • Finding Balance in Hospitality

    • We work in a tough industry. Share your best practices for maintaining a work/life balance, and positive mental health habits you’ve created.

  • Other!

    • Have fun and be creative. If you have an interesting story that you feel would resonate with USHG’s audience, give it a go!

Best Practices and Guidelines for Your Blog Post

  • Blog posts should be no longer than 500 words. We want these posts to be fun, succinct, and quick to read!

  • Posts should feel colloquial and casual, with precise and intentional writing.

  • Blog posts should have a “thesis”. What is the one lesson or feeling you want people to take from reading your blog post? Why should your audience read your post?

  • Split your posts up into paragraphs as opposed to one big passage.

  • Make sure to check for grammar/spelling before submitting your post.

  • This post will be read both internally and externally, so avoid using “hospitality jargon” or phrases that may only be known if you work in hospitality. If it’s relevant, use the jargon, but provide a definition.

  • Use multimedia when appropriate: pictures, graphics, lists, etc.

    • For example: writing about your childhood could be reinforced with a few baby pictures!
