In a global hospitality organisation it can be very difficult to keep in touch with colleagues in multiple locations, in multiple languages, across multiple timezones. Motivating these cherished members of your team is a task which shouldn’t be taken lightly considering these people are conveying the brand standards to your guests 24/7.

But how do you maintain the high-standards you expect? And, perhaps more importantly, how do you retain those members of staff who are the true champions of your hospitality organisation. This is discussed in this week’s briefing, with comments from:

  • Pierre O. Botteron, VP – Human Resources for Swissotel Hotels & Resorts on the need to deliver in-house consistency
  • Gerald Lawless, President & Group Chief Executive Officer for Jumeirah Group on keeping his colleagues motivated
  • David Thomson, COO for JA Resorts & Hotels, on retaining your cherished staff
  • Robert Gaymer-Jones, CEO of Sofitel Luxury Hotels on retaining the brand philosophy globally
