The Room Key: Should Hotel Sales Teams Be Allowed To Work From Home?
Providing a reasonable, flexible work environment is generally a good practice for the hotel industry. Yes, there are certain roles in our industry where working remotely is neither practical nor desirable. Yet in your scenario, I see no compelling reason why a sales or marketing leader—whose role entails being on property, participating in client meetings, and attending industry events—can’t have some flexibility with their schedule. That could mean working a half-day over extensive travel or taking a full-day to simply focus on tedious administrative responsibilities.
