MARKETING STRARTEGIES AT HOTEL DASPALLA
Competitive marketing strategies It is said that organisations in the tourism industry have been slow in adopting the Principles of marketing, even though these would enable them to improve their Performance and customer retention. Hotel Daspalla is following the marketing strategies be deployed to improve its own ability to compete with other Hotels gain a competitive advantage and thus retain a greater number of customers.
Positioning Positioning is an important strategy that an organization might utilize to create, and sustain, competitive advantage. Hotel Daspalla has identified its target market, the next step is to clearly Position its service offering. The organization should first of all identify the basis on which it wants to compete, and then position its services in a clear and unique way.
Managing supply and demand Demand and supply do not always match. The supply of services by a Hotel Daspalla may exceed the demand from customers in quiet times; demand from customers may exceed the ability of the hotel to supply the required services during peak times. When supply exceeds demand, a hotel is left with unused resources: rooms, restaurant seating and conference facilities, among other things. When demand exceeds supply – and there are no rooms or restaurant seating available – the hotelmay have no other option than to turn potential customers away
PART-B RESEARCH PROJECT
CHAPTER-I THEOREICAL FRAMEWORK OF HRM
TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT
Training and development are designed in order to impart specific skills, abilities and knowledge to the employees. Effective training is basic integrant of success in the hotel industry, yet managers often give little thought to the training function in the context of their own business or departmental responsibilities until something goes wrong. One of the main problems in hotel industry is that investment in training and development of employees is a reactive process for many companies. Frequently training and development arises as the result of significant change in the operational environment or as a consequent of crisis such as staff turnover or major departmental problems. Training is then used to cope with the immediate difficulty. This process may be proved costly to hotel. Whereas development refers to learning opportunities‟ designed to help employees grow and evolve a vision about the future. The job of HR is to identify training needs and accordingly to design a suitable program for that. Training within the hotel provides the best opportunity to influence the attitude and performance of employees. The training program includes introduction, food hygiene, manual handling first aid, technical skills, product knowledge, and customer service.
In the field of human resource management, training and development is the field which is concerned with organizational activity aimed at bettering the performance of individuals and groups in organizational settings. It has been known by several names, including human resource development, and learning and development.
Training: This activity is both focused upon, and evaluated against, the job that an individual currently holds. Education: This activity focuses upon the jobs that an individual may potentially hold in the future, and is evaluated against those jobs. Development: This activity focuses upon the activities that the organization employing the individual, or that the individual is part of, may partake in the future, and is almost impossible to evaluate.
TRAININGAND DEVELOPMENT IN HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
Human Resource Management is defined as the people who staff and manage organization. It comprises of the functions and principles that are applied to retaining, training, developing, and compensating the employees in organization. It is also applicable to non-business organizations, such as education, healthcare, etc Human Resource Management is defined as the set of activities, programs, and functions that are designed to maximize both organizational as well as employee effectiveness. Scope of HRM without a doubt is vast. All the activities of employee, from the time of his entry into an organization until he leaves, come under the horizon of HRM. The divisions included in HRM are Recruitment, Payroll, Performance Management, Training and Development, Retention, Industrial Relation, etc. Out of all these divisions, one such important division is training and development. TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT is a subsystem of an organization. It ensures that randomness is reduced and learning or behavioral change takes place in structured format. “Planned and systematic effort to modify or develop Knowledge, skill and attitude through a learning experience, to achieve effective performance in activities. Its purpose in the work situation is to enable an individual to acquire abilities in order that he/she can perform a given task adequately” -Pepper.O.Alien
“Training is a systematic attempt to develop the human resources, individual group and organizational competencies required to manage some present tasks and situations as well as those in future”. -Shandler Donald
Training and Development in Hospitality Sector
Hospitality sector is growing at a very fast rate in India. The sector is growing at a rate of approximately 8%. This sector can be classified into hotel industry, travel and tourism, restaurants, pubs, clubs and bars, contract catering, and aviation. Other than that, opportunities also exist in universities, sporting venues, exhibition centers and smaller events management companies. The major challenge of this sector is shortage of skilled employees along with the challenge of attrition rate. Skilled chefs and managers are in great demand. Managers require huge range of competencies such as, people management, viable skills, business insights, analytic skills, succession planning, and resource development in order to get success in this sector. In addition to that, employees are not enough trained on Business Etiquettes, Courtesy, and Business Communication. Hospitality is all about handling people.

TRADITIONAL & MODERN APPROACH OF TRAINING AND DEVLOPMENT
Traditional Approach – Most of the organizations before never used to believe in training. They were holding the traditional view that managers are born and not made. There were also some views that training is a very costly affair and not worth. Organizations used to believe more in executive pinching. But now the scenario seems to be changing. Modern Approach of training and development is that Indian Organizations have realized the importance of corporate training. Training is now considered as more of retention tool than a cost. The training system in Indian Industry has been changed to create a smarter workforce and yield the best results
Objectives of Training & Development.
The principal objective of training and development division is to make sure the availability of a skilled and willing workforce to an organization. In addition to that, there are four other objectives: Individual, Organizational, Functional, and Societal. Individual Objectives – help employees in achieving their personal goals, which in turn, enhances the individual contribution to an organization. Organizational Objectives – assist the organization with its primary objective by bringing individual effectiveness. Functional Objectives – maintain the department‟s contribution at a level suitable to the organization‟s needs. Societal Objectives – ensure that an organization is ethically and socially responsible to the needs and challenges of the society.
Employee training is distinct from management development. Training is a shortterm process utilizing a systematic and organized procedure by which nonmanagerial personnel learn technical knowledge and skills for a definite purpose. It refers to instructions in technical and mechanical operations like operation of a machine. It is designed primarily for non-managers. On the other hand, development is a long-term education process utilizing a systematic and organized procedure by which managerial personnel learn conceptual and theoretical knowledge for general purpose. It involves broader education and its purpose is long-term development. Training involves helping an individual learn how to perform his present job satisfactorily. Development involves preparing the individual for a future job and growth of the individual in all respects. Development complements training because human resources can exert their full potential only when the learning process goes far beyond simple routine
Need for Training
Training is required on account of the following reasons: 1. Job Requirements. Employees selected for a job might lack the qualifications required to perform the job effectively. New and inexperienced employees require detailed instruction for effective performance on-the-job. In some cases, the past experience, attitudes and behavior patterns of experienced personnel might be inappropriate to the new organization. Remedial training should be given to such people to match the needs of the organization. 2. Technological changes. Technology is changing very fast. Now automation and mechanization are being increasingly applied ion offices and service sector. Increasing use of fast changing techniques requires training into new technology. For instance, staffs in public sector bank are being trained due to computerization of banking operations. No organization can take advantage of latest technology without well-trained personnel. New jobs require new skills. Thus, both new and old employees require training. 3. Organizational viability. In order to survive and grow, an organization must continually adapt itself to the changing environment. With increasing economic
liberalization and globalization in India, business firms are experiencing expansion, growth and diversification. In order to face international competition, the firms must upgrade their capabilities. 4. Internal Mobility. Training becomes necessary when an employee moves from one job to another due to promotion and transfer. Employees chosen for higher level jobs need to be trained before they are asked to perform the higher responsibilities. Training is widely used to prepare employees for higher level jobs.

All training activities must be related to the specific needs of the organization and the individual employees. A training program should be launched only after the training needs are assessed clearly and specifically. The problem areas that can be resolved through training should also be identified. Training needs can be identified through the following types of analysis: 1. Organizational Analysis. It involves a study of the entire organization in terms of its objectives, its resources, resource allocation and utilization, growth potential and its environment. Organizational analysis consists of the following elements: (a) Analysis of Objectives. The long-term and short-term objectives and their relative priorities are analyzed. Specific goals and strategies for various departments and sections should be stated as a means for achieving the overall organizational objectives. (b) Resource Utilization Analysis. The allocation of human and physical resources and their efficient utilization in meeting the operational targets are analyzed. In order to examine in detail the inputs and outputs of the organization. (c) Organization Climate Analysis. The prevailing climate of an organization reflects the member‟s attitudes. It also represents management‟s attitude towards employee development. (d) Environmental Scanning. The economic, political, technological and sociocultural environment of the organization is examined.
2. Task or Role Analysis. It is a systematic and detailed analysis of jobs to identify job contents, the knowledge, skills and aptitudes required and the work behavior. On the part of the job holder, particular attention should be paid to the tasks to be performed. 3. Manpower Analysis. In this analysis, the persons to be trained and the changes required in the knowledge, skills, and aptitudes of an employee are determined. Moreover, this analysis should be integrated in a carefully designed and executed program.
Objectives of Training
Once the training needs are identified, the next step is to set training objectives in concrete terms and to decide the strategies to be adopted to achieve these objectives. The overall aim of the training program is to fill in the gap between the existing and the desired pool of knowledge, skills and aptitudes. The main objectives of training may be defined as follows: 1. To impart to new entrants the basic knowledge and skill required for efficient performance of definite tasks; 2. To assist the employees to function more effectively in their present positions by exposing them to the latest concepts; 3. To build up a second line of competent officers and prepare them to occupy more responsible positions; 4. To broaden the minds of senior managers through interchange of experience within and outside so as to correct the narrow outlook caused due to over specialization. While setting training objectives, the following criteria may be used: (i) Nature and size of the group to be trained. (ii) Roles and tasks to be coined out by the target group. (iii) Relevance, applicability and compatibility of training to the work situation.
(iv) Identification of the behavior where change is required. (v) Existing and desired behavior defined in terms of ratio, frequency, quality of interaction, repetitiveness, innovations, supervision, etc. (vi) Operational results to be achieved through training, e.g., productivity, cost, down time, creativity, turnover, etc.
Methods& Techniques of Training
The methods employed for training of operatives may be described as under: 1. On-the-job Training (OJT). In this method, the trainee is placed on a regular job and taught the skills necessary to perform it. The trainee learns under the guidance and supervision of the superior or an instructor. The trainee learns by observing and handling the job. Therefore, it is called learning by doing. Several methods are used to provide on-the-job training, e.g., coaching, job rotation, committee assignments, etc. A popular form of on-the-job training is job Instruction Training (JIT) or step by step learning. 2. Vestibule Training. In this method, a training centre called vestibule is set up and actual job conditions are duplicated or simulated in it. Expert trainers are employed to provide training with the help of equipment and machines which are identical with those in use at the workplace. 3. Apprenticeship Training. In this method, theoretical instruction and practical learning are provided to trainees in training institutes. In India, the Government has established Industrial Training Institute (ITIs) for this purpose. Generally, a stipend is paid during the training period. Thus, it is an “earn when you learn” scheme. 4. Classroom Training. Under this method, training is provided in company classrooms or in educational institutions. Lectures, case studies, group discussions, and audio visual aids are used to explain knowledge and skills to the trainees. Classroom training is suitable for teaching concepts and problem-solving skills.
5. Internship Training. It is a joint program of training in which educational institutions and business firms cooperate. Selected candidates carry on regular studies for the prescribed period. They also work in some factory or office to acquire practical knowledge and skills. E.g., MBBS, CA, ICWA, Company Secretaries. Etc.
Differences between Training & Development
Area Content Purpose Duration For Whom
Training Technical skills and Knowledge. Specific job Relation Short-term Mostly technical and non managerial Personnel
Development Managerial behavioral skills and knowledge. Conceptual and General knowledge Long-term Mostly for managerial personnel
Principles of Training
The following guidelines can help to make training more effective: 1. Clear Objectives. The objectives and scope of a training program should be clearly defined. A comparison of operational requirements and existing human resource skills will help to determine the specific training needs of employees. 2. Training Policy. A clearly defined training policy serves as the guide for designing and implementing training programs. 3. Motivation. Employees tend to be most responsive to training programs when they feel the need to learn. Therefore, training must be related to the needs and problems of the trainees as well as to their abilities and aptitudes. Audio-visual aids should be used to avoid boredom and fatigue of the lecture method.
4. Reinforcement. According to B.F.Skinner‟s Behavior Modification Model, when a behavior is repeatedly rewarded, it becomes a permanent part of one‟s personality. Learning is more effective when there is reinforcement in the form of rewards and punishments. 5. Organized Material. Training material should be properly organized. A complete outline of the whole course should be distributed in advance so that the trainees can prepare themselves before coming to the class. 6. Learning Periods. Learning takes time and teaching in segments is better than in one go. Several short sessions spread over a long period, enable the trainee to learn, reinforce and review. 7. Preparing the Instructor. The instructor or trainer is the key figure in a training program. The trainer should not only be a good teacher but must know the subject and the job also. 8. Feedback. Trainees should be provided information on how much they have learnt and how well they are doing. Every trainee should what aspect of his behavior/performance is not up to par and what he can do to improve it. 9. Practice. Practice makes a man perfect. Skills that are practiced often are better learned and less easily forgotten. Therefore, trainees should be allowed continuous practice. Tell and demonstrate knowledge and skills and then let the trainee try it himself. 10. Appropriate Techniques. The methods and processes of training should be related directly to the needs and objectives of the organization. It should be conducted as far as possible in the actual job environment so as to be meaningful. To be effective, training should be based on the tested principles of learning.
Developing the skills of employees through development activities related to current and future jobs. Many jobs need people who care about making all employees as effective as possible and who can identify employee's weaknesses, design or locate the right development situations, and motivate employees to develop themselves. Supervisors need to make sure they develop their staff in their current jobs. This behavior is closely linked to the Dimensions of Coaching or Training. Development of Employees focuses more on the long-range development of employees. Employee development is a joint, on-going effort on the part of an employee and the organization for which he or she works to upgrade the employee's knowledge, skills, and abilities. Successful employee development requires a balance between an individual's career needs and goals and the organization's need to get work done. Employee development programs make positive contributions to organizational performance. A more highly-skilled workforce can accomplish more and a supervisor's group can accomplish more as employees gain in experience and knowledge. Employee development programs make positive contributions to organizational performance. A more highly skilled workforce can accomplish more as the individuals gain in experience and knowledge. In addition, retaining an employee saves the organization a great deal of money. One method of retention is to provide opportunities to develop new skills. In research conducted to assess what retained employees, development was one of the top three retention items. It is the process of changing an organization, its employees, groups of people within it, using planned and unplanned learning, in order to achieve and maintain a competitive advantage for the organization development is reserved for the top management it is becoming increasingly clear that career development is necessary for the retention of any employee, no matter what their level in the company. Research has shown that some type of career path is necessary for job satisfaction and hence job retention. Perhaps organizations need to include this area in their overview of employee satisfaction. Development encompasses a variety of
components such as training, career development, career management, and organizational development, and training and development. It is expected that during the 21st century more companies will begin to use more integrated terms such as talent development.

Process of Development
The Organization Development process begins when an organization recognizes that a problem exists which impacts the mission or health of the organization and change is desired. It can also begin when leadership has a vision of a better way and wants to improve the organization. An organization does not always have to be in trouble to implement organization development activities. Once the decision is made to change the situation, the next step is to assess the situation to fully understand it. This assessment can be conducted in many ways including documentation review, organizational sensing, focus groups, interviewing, or surveying. The assessment could be conducted by outside experts or by members of the organization. After the situation is assessed, defined, and understood, the next step is to plan an intervention. The type of change desired would determine the nature of the intervention. Interventions could include training and development, team interventions such as team building for management or
employees or the establishment of change teams, structural interventions, or individual interventions. Once the intervention is planned, it is implemented. During and after the implementation of the intervention, relevant data is gathered. The data gathered would be determined by the change goals. For example, if the intervention were training and development for individual employees or for work groups, data to be gathered would measure changes in knowledge and competencies. This data is used to determine the effectiveness of the intervention. It is reported to the organization’s decision-makers. The decision-makers determine if the intervention met its goals. If the intervention met its goals, the process can end, which is depicted by the raising of the development bar. If it did not, the decision is made whether to continue the cycle and to plan and carry out another intervention or to end it.
Methods & Techniques of Development
Various techniques of executive development may be classified into two broad categories as shown in the following figure.

Principles of Development
There are Six Organizational Development Principles they are as follow
Integrity Commitment Empowerment Versatility Renewal Integration
These principles need be explored and integrated with Organization Development in order to produce effective organizational synergy for ultimate high performance. The Integrity Principle An organization cannot remain in a high-performance state for long if it lacks integrity. Organization Development intervention or strategy should focus on, and be guided by, the need to promote and sustain the integrity of the organization and the people systems. The primary meaning of 'integrity' is 'wholeness'. The integrity will include internal facets highly valued enough to ensure harmony, stability, vitality, and wholesomeness which have significant impact on the life of the organization as well as on the quality of the people and integrating systems. The Commitment Principle The employees will give their best when they are committed to a cause. Planning resources, developing a focused communication strategy, introducing commitment roundtables, and profiling Organization Development champions are central to employing the Commitment Principle. The Empowerment Principle The OD Intervention must empower the people and the people systems so that they operate in tandem and seamlessly for high performance. It must build up the internal capacity and stamina, promote people's drive for achieving the business (and strategic) results or mandate, and facilitate alignment and vitality in and among the systems elements or facets. There must be an agreement on the process, program and strategies which will facilitate empowerment of the people and the responsiveness of the integrating systems. Time frames must be developed on the various aspects of the empowerment process and outcomes.
The Versatility Principle The Versatility Principle is consequential upon the Empowerment Principle. The Versatility Principle emphasizes the importance of ensuring adaptability, responsiveness, flexibility, innovativeness, vitality, and spontaneity of the people and integrating systems. This principle is critical to ensuring that the people and integrating systems are, or remain, in top condition for achieving the strategic mandate in the long term. Building a learning organization and optimizing systems elements in the Organizational Development are some of the designs employing the Versatility Principle. The Renewal Principle The heart of any Organization Development is the renewal of the people and integrating systems. The Renewal Principle takes off from this premise of Organization Development and it is linked with the Versatility Principle. For sustainable high performance, the people and integrating systems must be operating re-generatively for auto-renewal. The Organization Development framework and technology must make this possible. To optimize and re-vitalize the people systems and elements, the Organization Development framework and technology must incorporate mechanisms and tools for systematic, continuous review, assessment and feedback. The Integration Principle The Organization Development framework and technology should explicitly address issues of integration of the elements, sub-systems or people attributes for ultimate high performance.
Evaluating Training and Development Program:
Evaluation is too important to be treated in the earlier fashion and it starts long before the end of a training programmer. Its importance is such that if training and development programmer are not evaluated to the useless to run the training. Training is the process of changing people to effective state so that the business aspects of the organization are improved. Evaluation is the process of „measuring „this type and achievement from the start of the training process to it‟s final and continued successful application in the workforce.
Reasons for evaluation
To ensure that the training is achieving its objectives. To improve the effectiveness of the training programmers. Hence evaluation should be done at three stages: 1. Pre-training:- Feedback is to be taken from the participants or the nominees before the training session so that the program can be modified according to their expectations. 2. Mid-training:- To know the initial response of the patricians, mid- training feedback has to be taken. 3. Post training: - After the completion of the program feedback from the participants has to be taken to ensure whether the program can be continued or not if required changes have to be made. The pre-training and mid-training evaluations are not applicable to the training program which takes place for five days or more than five days.
Training and Development in Hotel Daspalla
Here in Hotel Daspalla they follow both the training methods i.e.,
On the Job training Off the job training
With on the job training, employees receive training whilst remaining in the workplace. The main methods of one-the-job training include:
Demonstration / instruction - showing the trainee how to do the job Coaching - a more intensive method of training that involves a close working relationship between an experienced employee and the trainee. Job rotation - where the trainee is given several jobs in succession, to gain experience of a wide range of activities (e.g. a graduate management trainee might spend periods in several different departments) Projects - employees join a project team - which gives them exposure to other parts of the business and allow them to take part in new activities. Most successful project teams are "multi-disciplinary".
The advantages and disadvantages of this form of training can be summarized as follows: Advantages Generally most cost-effective Employees are actually productive Opportunity to learn whilst doing Training alongside real colleagues Disadvantages Quality depends on ability of trainer and time available Bad habits might be passed on Learning environment may not be conducive Potential disruption to production
Here in Hotel Daspalla on-the-job training is based on the performance of the employees. The Hotel Management monitors the employee‟s performance for a period of few month of their joining and based on their performance they see the needs and qualities the employee is lacking and based on that the training program is conducted for the employee. The training program is organized in the organization campus itself where the training is conducted and the employees are trained to cope up with the qualities they are lacking in. This training programs time period is one year where the employees are trained by the HOD and in a role playing method where the employees see and learn from the concerned faculty. In on-the-job training the employees are trained on the basis of their needs and performance. If even after the training period the employee is not able to cope up with the work then there is another training program conducted for them in the organization which help them to understand the work better and also helps in improving their performance in the work. In this the instruction is given by the respective HOD‟s to the trainees and then the coaching is given to them by the HOD‟s. In few hospitality colleges the students are sent to hotel industries for training and to do project in the hotel industries for a time period of 6months.
This occurs when employees are taken away from their place of work to be trained. Common methods of off-the-job training include:
Day release (employee takes time off work to attend a local college or training centre) Distance learning / evening classes Block release courses - which may involve several weeks at a local college Sandwich courses - where the employee spends a longer period of time at college (e.g. six months) before returning to work Sponsored courses in higher education Self-study, computer-based training
The main advantages and disadvantages of this form of training can be summarized as follows: Advantages A wider range of skills or qualifications can be obtained Can learn from outside specialists or experts Employees can be more confident when starting job Disadvantages More expensive – e.g. transport and accommodation Lost working time and potential output from employee New employees may still need some induction training Employees now have new skills/qualifications and may leave for better jobs
Here in Hotel Daspalla off-the-job training firstly the management recruits the employees and the performance of the employees is taken into consideration and then the management decides to give training to the employees based on the needs on the employees where the Hotel Management monitors the employee‟s performance for a period of one month and based on their performance they see the needs the employee is lacking and based on that the training program is conducted for the employee. The training program is organized in the organization campus itself where the training is conducted and the employees are trained to cope up with the qualities they are lacking in. This training programs time period is for few months where the employees are trained by the HOD and they give lectures to the employee about the work based on the required qualities needed by the employee. In off-the-job training the employees are trained on the basis of their needs and performance. Where the training given to them is theory and the employees get good knowledge of the organization and the organization culture. Development is done based on the training if the employee is able to cope up with the needs and improve his qualities then based on the performance the increment of the employee increases.
NEED FOR THE STUDY
Training and Development is needed in all organizations and should be understood. Such services and facilities which may be established in or in the vicinity of, an understood to enable the persons employed in them to perform their work in healthy congenial surroundings. Labor has an important role in the industrial production of the country. The personnel management relies with the management of people at work. Management is an art of getting the work done by the people. Therefore, it is very necessary to seek the cooperation of the labor force in order to increases the production and to earn higher profits. The cooperation of employees is possible only when they are fully satisfied with employer and the working conditions on the job. In the past, the industrial and the managers believed that their only duty towards their employees was to pay them satisfactory wages. In course of time, however, psychological researches conceived those workers required something more important, i.e., human treatment which is very essential to seek the cooperation of the employees. For this purpose, training and Development of the employees is very necessary to make them realized that the management thinks of their future. Such activities benefit not only workers but also management in the form of greater productive efficiency. Today progressive managers realize that these facilities pay well towards the healthy future and efficiency of workers towards high moral.
