Three skills for hotel managers to master in 2022
It’s finally 2022 which means you may be looking to upskill this year to further advance your career. If you work in hotel management, it can often be hard to quantify what this actually means as your day-to-day is made up of a lot of varied tasks. We’ve put together a list of the top skills we think will be crucial moving forward in the new year.
The last couple of years have taught us – no matter what industry – the importance of staying flexible in your career, and this is going to continue to remain true as we move through 2022. Make sure to implement precautionary measures to not only keep yourself flexible but also your staff and patrons. Plans can change in a second and it’s in your best interest to offer those around you the same privilege. This may mean more flexible working arrangements or cancellation policies.
Be available for staff
Speaking of flexibility, 2022 is the year to make sure you’re more available for your staff. One of the main points of having staff under you is the ability to delegate work to free up your time to focus on the bigger picture. This means less micromanaging but also being able to make time for when they need your time and help. The key here is to guide them not to control.
Simplify your workflow
This brings us onto workflow. To further free up your time to focus on the bigger picture it is crucial to simplify where possible by automating and streamlining your every day. This could take many forms such as further delegation or getting rid of tasks that are antiquated, or integrating the use of facility management software.
Facility management software such as MYBOS gives you access to features such as asset registry. A preventative maintenance calendar and contractor database. If you’re looking to take the next step in upskilling this year, head to mybos.com/try-mybos-free.
