Managing hotel staff is no easy task. It takes managers a while to establish routines so that everything runs smoothly. Even then, a number of glitches can occur. This is normal, as mistakes naturally happen, especially with lots of work. However, reducing unnecessary mistakes is the key to both management and staff satisfaction.

Some of the things you need to think about when managing employees working in a hotel or in an inn:

  • Who is working in which department
  • How many shifts need to be filled and who is working which shift
  • Pay rates depending on job type, shift time, and other variables
  • What happens when someone falls ill or is on vacation?
  • How to allow employees to swap shifts among themselves?
  • Avoid over and understaffing
  • Having an overview of your entire staff schedule

These are only a couple of things hotel managers have to worry about on a daily basis. Many hotels around the world use various software to overcome those obstacles. With a multitude of software solutions, it is not easy to decide which software is right for you.
