This was a panel discussion titled 'Post Pandemic Realities – Opportunities & Challenges' which was held in Bangalore.

Key takeaways

  • Hiring needs to be able to engage with the young hotelier of today especially as the first 6 months are most crucial for a new recruit
  • There needs to be less organizational layers and traditional hierarchy and a need to look beyond the obvious for solutions
  • Right sizing staff to properties has become easier with tech efficiencies but technology also needs to be married to the expectations of multiple stakeholders.
