Hospitality Is Changing due to COVID, Latest Sale Week 05042021

This week Latest Sale reports on how the hospitality is changing due to COVID. The hospitality, travel, and leisure Business Directory shows how the hospitality industry has been one of the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The sudden closure of hotels, restaurants, bars and other public locations that offer accommodation and food services has had a devastating impact on many businesses within a short timeframe. Social distancing protocols are making it difficult for customers to patronize these establishments, leading to a sharp decline in revenues. In addition to the financial losses, hospitality businesses have had to navigate a complex set of health and safety regulations. Many hotels, restaurants, and bars have adapted their services to accommodate social distancing protocols. All-you-can-eat buffets have now been…

Role of Employee Training in Hospitality Latest Sale Week 08022021

This week we report from the Hospitality, Travel, and Leisure Business Directory, and discuss the role of employee training in hospitality businesses. Proper employee training directly impacts customer experience, ROI, and business reputation hence its increased importance. Staff training ensures hospitality workers can better handle customers through improved communication to gain a customer’s attention, and the implementation of greeting initiatives all contribute to making hotel guests feel welcome. When these practices are implemented during the time of reservation, it increases the chances of a booking, thus generating higher ROI. But more than that, it also improves employee satisfaction. Workers feel more appreciated, and staff turnover can be reduced considerably. And when both employees and customers remain satisfied, hotel establishments will automatically gain a healthy reputation….

Airbnb Moving Forward Latest Sale Week 19102020

This week the Business Directory team reports for the hospitality, travel and leisure category and covers Airbnb moving forward due to expansion plans. As the company looked to expand its hotel business, Airbnb acquired HotelTonight in April 2019, a native hotel booking site where users could find last minute deals. However, the company has learned that travellers share a preference for unique stays hosted by individual owners; they do not shop Airbnb for hotels so the company has now significantly curbed its investment in hotels. In 2021, the company will look to attract more hosts. They plan to do this by simplifying the onboarding process and providing new tools for hosts to manage their rentals more easily. Capitalizing on organic traffic, the company hopes to…
