In every organization, the success of your business depends upon the quality of your team. The sheer size of the team in the average hotel can make management seem cumbersome and even overwhelming, but with an excellent team, your hotel will run like a dream. There are many factors to hiring a successful team, but here is a list of what we believe to be some of the most important.
1. Strong Leadership
In order to influence a team, you must have a strong a leader. Leadership doesn’t have to be loud, powerful, or intimidating, but it must be influential. In hospitality staffing, it is very important to have a good, strong leader who earns the respect of his or her team. Even the best team will fail if they are not lead properly.
Of course, this applies to management, but good leaders don’t always need to be in charge. At Suite Hospitality Staffing we are committed to ongoing training for all of our team members so that your team is packed with people who take leadership seriously.
2. Team players
It takes a lot of people to run your hotel, and it’s important that they are all working together to create the best experience for your guests. Your team can make or break your business, and it’s important to have a group of employees who are committed to the business and the team.
The service industry is about exactly that, service. Our employees excel working in hospitality because they understand that the goal of their work is not to promote their own ego but to serve the customer and advance the company.
3. Open communication
Whether in hospitality staffing or in a corporate boardroom, communication is key to building a successful team. Each member of the team must know and understand the team’s goals and objectives. Good communication helps your staff understand where the team is headed and what role they play in meeting the overall goals.
4. Commitment to Excellence
As the saying goes, one bad apple can spoil the bunch, and one substandard employee makes in next to impossible for you to provide the best service to your customers. In hospitality staffing, it is critical that each team member is committed to excellence. Your company, your brand, and your hotel guests deserve nothing less than that.
