(It is vital to motivate the employees.) In addition the HR department keeps the workforce updated about the company`s plans, and laying out the implications for job security and working conditions. The HR department is vital for every hotel business in order to provide a quality workforce to the company. All in all The Human Resources department provides support and advice to line management. The attraction, preservation and development of high caliber people are a source of competitive advantage for hotel businesses as employees are the most important resource.

In our today??™s dynamic global economy there is a lot of competition which means companies have to strive for the best quality.
In the past when there was no HR, the quality of products and services was poor because the workforce had just a few rights and they had to do what they were told. The human resource department seeks to improve the quality of work environment for the employees in order to improve the quality of performance. In other words HR is necessary to make a company profitable.
HR follows 4 basic steps: 1) Finding the appropriate people with the right skills at the right time 2) Develop staff 3) Keep workforce updated 4) MotivationRECOMMENDATIONThe HRM in your hotel should follow to our suggestions below.1. SET UP GOALS: It is the most important part in every organisation.
SOURCE: http://thedistinctdot.com/2011/05/07/mission-statements/ http://www.konoconsultancy.com2. JOB ANALYSIS: Before recruit people, HRM must identify jobs your hotel needs. Many companies make the mistake of not completing a job analysis for each position.
Because the information the analysis contains has a variety of uses. It reveals the necessary tasks, behaviors and personal characteristics needed to do a job. In many cases, job analysis tells a company why specific abilities and skills are required for a job.STEPS IN JOB ANALYSIS3. RECRUITMENT: After done job analysis, HRM should focus on hiring people.
Especially in hospitality, human is the main resource of your business. If you are fail to hire right people, your hotel will cost more money to train them.THE PRE-RECRUITMENT PROCESS4. TRAINING: Even if you have hired right people to right position, it is difficult to respect a high-level performance from your employees without job training.
Well-designed training process is able to prevent employee turnover. If number of new employees resigned your hotel, all the money and time to invest them, would be gone. The job training must be continuous repeatedly.
Eventually, it will become a core value in your business to be success for a long time. SOURCE: http://mournetrainingservices.blogspot.com/2009/06/training-cycle-explained.html
