ROSLYN — About 100 employees at Suncadia resort have been placed on seasonal furlough this winter.

"We have instituted seasonal furloughs for some of our associates," said Roger Beck, managing director for Suncadia.

Beck said a furlough is a temporary layoff and that the people remain on Suncadia's payroll roster.

Beck said the number can be hard to define because in some cases it just means that an on-call banquet worker is not being called in because there are no banquets.

Beck said the continued down economy and the lack of significant snow this winter are factors, but that the resort also is trying to better manage its staffing levels.

"We're going into a new fiscal year," Beck said. "In the past we've carried large payrolls into the winter season. ... The reality is the business level probably didn't justify the number of employees."

Beck said the goal is for year-round occupancy rates to increase to the point it supports year-round staff, but right now first quarter occupancy rates are significantly lower than summer occupancy rates.

"Our staffing needs ebb and flow with the occupancy of the resort," Beck said.

In the peak season Suncadia employs about 400 people, Beck said.
