Labor Management in the Hospitality Industry Part II

LMS implementations affect everyone and change the way people manage. Thus, effectively implementing a Labor Management System (LMS) requires as much attention to the impact on culture as it does to teaching managers how to use the technology.  click on learn more icon to download paper

The essence of the LMS is that it increases accountability. Any LMS implementation requires a well thought out development plan that should start with education. Make sure that the labor standards are well developed. It’s helpful to look at historical productivity to gain a perspective on previous performance.

Realize that the change is going to take a few months. It’s not feasible to implement an LMS program in two weeks. You might be able to set up the software, but that’s not the same as getting everyone to use it and it’s certainly not the same as having the new technology become a part of the fundamental means of managing.
