We have the official launch of our property as a Novotel hotel on the 30th September it will also mark from the 2nd of October as 6 months in being part of the Accor family. Considering the transition, our new training and my own as duty manager it has gone quite smoothly. First two months was trial and error, we had 3 strokes of bad luck said goodbye to old staff members and welcomed the newcomers, we re-branded the restaurant and this month finally got all signage on the hotel up.
When asked by other Accor colleagues from other properties are we enjoying the transition and finding a happy medium in being a Novotel I have to agree with my HR manager she said that everyone are much happier and we all reaching our content feeling and not stressing on who we work with. Everyone are much more open to each other and discuss problems then behind their backs. The more this happens more successful our name will get out that and revenue will pick up.
