Nowadays every organization whether be it a MNC or Hotel, Human resource Planning is one of the vital ingredient required for the success of the organization. We hear it again and again that various hotel employees shift their jobs from one chain to another because of various unknown reasons and many fresh/new employees, who have just joined the hotel industry, are shifting their jobs again and again. What can be the reason? Hotels as we all know is a booming industry and with span of time and years many new hotel chains are coming up and as the hotels are coming up, the employment is also increasing. But the biggest question about the topic is that “Whether the person who is hired is at a right position?” For example, if a person has 10 years of experience in Food and Beverage Department and was working as Food and Beverage, outlet Manager would never work as a Captain in the next Job. Same goes for each and every department in the hotels. For this we would study about various career opportunities available in the hotels.

The department is classified on account of its function. They are divided under the heads of Core departments and Support Departments.

The Core Department of the hotel are as follows:

 Food and Beverage Department: This department deals mainly with Food and Beverage Service allied activities. Different divisions are there in Food & Beverage Department like Restaurants, Specialty restaurants, Coffee shop (24 hours), Bar, Banquets, Room Service etc.

 Front Office Department: This department deals with processing of reservations, registering guest, settling guest accounts and checking out guest. Front desk agents also handle the distribution of guest room keys and mails, messages or other information for the guest. The Front desk provides all possible guest services related to all departments as per the guest request.

 Housekeeping Department: This is another important department of the hotel that deals with cleaning and upkeep of guest and non guest areas of the hotel. This department has the largest staff as compared to the other departments. Housekeeping department also includes laundry service (for hotel linens, uniforms and guest clothing).

 Food Production Department: This department deals with the preparation of food items.

It is generally engaged in preparation of those dishes which are ordered by the guest in the 17

various Food and Beverage Outlets, which is afterwards catered by the Food and Beverage personnel to the guest. Production Department may serve various cuisines in a hotel like French, Chinese, Mexican, Punjabi, Rajasthani, South Indian Cuisine etc.

The Support Departments of the hotel are as follows:

 Sales and Marketing Department: This department has become one of the most vital functions of the hotel business and is an integral part of modern hotel management. It includes sales promotion, advertising and public relation and packaging for selling. This department basically sells hotel rooms and banquets and the department has the responsibility of keeping the hotel rooms occupied at the right price with the right mix of guests.

 Engineering and Maintenance Department : This department has gained a lot of importance with the span of time as they deal with day to day services of guest utility, electricity,hot water service,air conditioning and other related services to the guest. They also take care for repair and maintenance of the equipments, Furniture and Fixture in the hotel. The cleaning, upkeep, repair, replacement, installation and maintenance of property and its furnishing, machinery and equipment are joint responsibilities of Engineering/Maintenance and the Housekeeping Department.

 Finance, Accounting and Control Department: Hotels accounting department is responsible for keeping track of many business transactions that occur in the hotel on day to day basis.This department keeps a track of the revenue and the expenses occurred in the financial year. Whereas the control department is concerned with cost control guidelines by way of reducing in investment, reduction in operating cost, control of food service cost, control, of beverage cost, Labor cost control etc.

 Safety and Security Department: The security of guests, employees, personal property and the hotel itself is a very important aspect of the hotel industry. This department deals with proper employee checking while reporting and while leaving the shift. The department keeps a track of and harassment, violence or theft etc activities within the hotel premises.

 Administration Department: Top organizational members usually supervise the administration department in a hotel. This department is responsible for all the work connected with administration, personnel, Manpower, employee’s welfare, medical, health and security etc.

 Human Resource Department: This department has newly taken step in hotel industry and within a short span of time it has become a very important part of the organization. It plays the role of facilitator between the employee and employer.

All the above departments are the various departments in which the employees are been required by any 5 star hotel and when it comes to hiring of employees the Human Resource Department plays the most 18

important role of conducting various rounds of interviews for the various applicants applying for various positions in the hotel.
