Sourcing the Right Technology for your Hotel or Restaurant
We are seeing hotels & restaurants beginning to replace staff with technology. From ordering room service on iPads to food being delivered by robots. As these changes develop it’s important to keep up to date with what’s going on in order to stay competitive. We have sourced some of the latest technology being created for staff and customers so you can stay ahead of the times.
Map My Future
Rocco Forte Hotels are developing an innovative new application that will bring hospitality training and development into the 21st century.
Map My Future will allow their Team Members to access a company Career Map showing all the possible career paths beyond their role, as well as the training needed to progress. They will also be able to set career goals, access relevant training content and receive job advice from specially trained Career Coaches 24 hours a day. Learning time is flexible, and therefore not dependent on time restraints that are often imposed within the workplace, allowing all Team Members to benefit from the app no matter what shift or hours they work. Map My Future is revolutionising the way they develop their Team Members at Rocco Forte Hotels and it will soon be available to other companies looking to develop and retain their best talent.
