Shortly after completing my Hospitality Management degree I scored an internship at the corporate office of one of the world’s biggest hotel brands. I was so excited! A job after graduation, an office job, and in a new exciting city. As I began my internship, I began learning about hospitality industry.
Developing your employees is one of the best ways to both attract and retain top people in your industry. But some companies get so busy with the day-to-day running of their brand that they let employee training and improvement fall to the wayside. If your goal is to improve the overall service at your hotel or resort, creating world-class employees should be your first step in the journey.
The concept of hotel management started in the 1950s when big-name brands like Hilton and Inter Continental have started to expand internationally. Hilton and Inter Continental would buy a building, make a hotel out of it and hire a local company to run the daily operations. The brands would play the role of the hotel owner that collects the profits.
