Your pledge: To always be concerned about the morale of staff and aim to up staff’s level of engagement.
By staff’s level of engagement is meant how much interest and commitment do they have for their jobs at the hotel. Managers and supervisors should be able to answer and address the following 12 questions that determine whether staffs are: engaged, not engaged, or actively disengaged at work. Making sure each question is addressed will increase staff’s engagement in their work and benefit everyone. Exhaustive research done by Marcus Buckingham of the Gallup Organization has shown that if these points are addressed staff will be much happier and engaged in their jobs.
