New employees in our hotel attend a general orientation program. In this program, the hotel is fully introduced to the employees. A full brief in detail is held regarding our hotel’s history, rules and terms of employment.
Apart from the orientation program for beginners, there are various occupational training and personal training programs. To improve our employees’ English level, foreign language courses are also given.
In order that our employees can spend time together, outside working hours too, social activities are organized. These include bowling, backgammon, table tennis tournaments, boat trip on the Bosphorous during the summer and Staff Ball during the winter.
Communication is an important issue in our establishment.
Every month, we regularly hold a Communication Meeting attended by a representative from each department. The needs of employees and problems that affect their work are shared, solutions are sought.
We regularly hold a staff party at the end of every month. During the staff party employees of the month, promoted / transferred staff and new recruited employees are announced.
To further increase communication, the General Manager invites department representatives for lunch or dinner within the year. He listens to their requests and answers their question.
All our employees’ performance is evaluated after the first 3 months. The manager and the employee have face to face interviews and the employee’s performance, teamwork adaptability and communication skills during the 3 month period are evaluated.
There is also another performance evaluation for all employees, the yearly performance evaluation.
This evaluation is made for various title groups with separate evaluation forms and the interviews are held directly with the managers. Employees and managers find the opportunity to evaluate the whole year and exchange views.
