Feelings Drive Sales

Hospitality Quotient ®(HQ) is a high-touch organizational consulting business, dedicated to helping clients create positive emotions in their organizations to yield a competitive advantage and drive top-line sales.

For more than 30 years, our parent company, Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, has been creating authentic, memorable customer experiences by first creating remarkable employee experiences. Our success lies in translating this concept to other industries, helping a range of clients – from healthcare to entertainment to finance – craft positive & productive work environments where employees thrive and all stakeholders benefit.

Custom Consulting Services


Our approach is refreshingly simple: one size fits one. We tailor each engagement to the specific goals and needs of our clients, while drawing on best practices from more than 30 years of experiences building productive and supportive employee-first cultures.

Our nimble & thoughtful approach, from discovery through implementation, is designed to ensure that leaders are equipped with the tools needed to support hospitality as a sustainable business strategy.

Our custom consulting process typically involves three phases:

Discovery & Needs Assessment (DNA):
Getting to the Root

We dig deep to uncover & analyze how the roots of an organization’s culture impact the employee and customer experiences, and make tailored recommendations for optimization.

Executive Alignment:
Sowing the Seeds of Success

We work closely with key leaders—within and across departments—to align on, and commit to, a vision of success, in order to lay a fertile foundation for sustainable cultural growth.

Solutions Implementation:
Nurturing Continued Growth

We help effect change by implementing customized solutions and assessing progress along the way—all while staying true to the core values of each organization.
