A 5-Star Home Away From Home in Historical Melaka

Success in the hospitality industry boils down to teamwork between departments and, on your part as a manager, keen discernment. It is about being able to recognise potential in different aspects of the business, especially when it comes to recruiting. People who can enhance the business are valuable assets and you must be able to work out who they are. I have witnessed a waitress being promoted to a restaurant manager after a few years of training. Training is so essential. You train a person not to just perform their job well but to be able to take over a higher position when the time comes. Michael Quay, Hotel Manager.
