With measures like social distancing, it is hard for hotels to keep the business running. During COVID- 19, employees of the hotel business are having a hard time meeting their basic needs. However, a few hotels are helping their staff in numerous ways.
Here are some ways in which hotels are supporting their employees to survive this tough time with ease:
Many renowned hospitality companies take pride in their team and do not hesitate to help them financially during the pandemic. These relief funds primarily focus on supporting the families of hotel employees by meeting their essential needs.
One of the great examples of a hotel relief fund is ‘TakeCare Relief Fund’ by Marriott international. Since 2006, it has distributed over 10.5 million USD. Many renowned hotels are coming forward to help their employees during the coronavirus outbreak.
Some hotel businesses during COVID- 19 are keeping their employees on the payroll. Hospitality companies are taking the opportunity of reduced occupancy for renovations and engaging staff in alternate work like cleaning, repairing, painting, and others. Some hotels are even sending staff over to other industries that are short of workforce.
Education and Training
Many hotels are utilizing this time to educate and train their employees with new skills that will advance their careers. The courses range from hospitality management to hotel administration, and many others.
These are some of the ways that hotel businesses can support their employees during the pandemic. Want to renovate your hotel, contact Nikki Fox at Parkwest General Contractors at Nikki@ParkwestGC.com. Our team would love to assist you with all your building upgrade needs today.
