These days this industry has become a multi-billion dollar industry and covers almost every segment of life-style. It is segmented into lodging, event planning, theme parks, transportation, cruise line, and additional fields within the tourism industry. It involves staff- consumer industry in an extent larger than every other industry. This point itself marks the importance of Human Resource Management i.e. HR in Hospitality industry. Now, let us analyze the requirement of this management.
Surveys and analysis have shown some significant statistics. They show that the recently the ratio of labor requirement to process materials or provide services came out to be 1:1 in hospitality industry. This is higher as compared to other industries in which the ratio comes out to be fairly less than 1.
This inch of data in itself says that the hospitality industry is highly – labor intensive. Thus there is much need to consider effective utilization of human resources here. So, employees need a proper training so that they could acquire knowledge and the skills required. Then they can operate within the systems and standards set by management. This is where HR comes into action.
Moreover, as the global market scenario keeps on changing, its largest impact is felt on the hospitality industry. Thus, with the help of training, employees could become aware of the implications of globalization, technology changes, workforce diversity, labor shortages, changing skill requirements, employee involvement, etc. As these employees part a core role in customer management of this industry, the lack of sufficient skills and knowledge can affect the whole business operations which is highly dependent of consumer retention.
The most basic training for employees would include the following:
- How to ensure rich service to the customers
- How to tackle with different types of consumer behavior
- Engagement of Staff and employees with the senior management.
- How to adjust in different market scenarios.
