Question 1: Based on the Hotel’s stated strategy, list at least four important employee behaviors for the Hotel Paris Staff?

Answer: The four important employee behaviors for the Hotel Paris Staff/Employees are given below:

1. Positive ‘Can Do’ Attitude:

Being ready, available and willing to get the job done, and done well, should be traits that Hotel Paris employees keep on the front burner. Hotel Paris management should appreciate employees who seek out quality work to remain busy as well as productive and who eagerly desire to go above and beyond their normal duties to bring further success.

2. Courteous and Friendly:

Hotel Paris employees should do their best to be courteous and friendly to their coworkers, managers and customers. These employees will make office life much more pleasant than those who seek to cause disturbances or drama. They will leave their egos behind, thus creating a good work atmosphere and brightening the office.

3. Strong Work Ethic: Setting and Achieving Goal:

A strong work ethic is clearly one of the most popular qualities Hotel Paris management will look for in an employee. Employees who set high goals for themselves, or respond well to stretch goals from supervisors, indicate a willingness to do more than clock in and clock out every day.

4. Be Dependable and Take Responsibility:

Dependability can make all the difference between an employee who usually follows through, and one who always does. Hotel Paris employees who will value their work, their word and their future with the hotel will take responsibility and tell the truth whenever they make mistakes. Making errors may or may not cause great problems, but when an employee honestly and earnestly explains an oversight or mistake he has made, the Paris hotel management will understand that the employee values his integrity.
