Trainees are high priority at Pullman Dresden Newa
Trainees at the Hotel Pullman Dresden Newa
Over 70 parents, teachers, and department managers visited the Hotel Pullman Dresden Newa on the 21st of February. The hotel invited the hotel’s 22 trainees to hotel tours and a social evening with the theme “Carnival” with a dinner and a quiz. The responsibility for the preparation of the evening – which started with the aquisition of sponsors, followed by the the request for goods, and the organisation of the hotel tours, and the sending of invitations, and the smooth running on the day – lay in the hands of the trainees themselves.
The General Manager Daniel Schlomann helped motivate and prepare the trainees for this task during several meetings. “With this project we have provided our trainees with a concrete and extensive task, while also giving them the space to brainstorm and try out new ideas. And the result shows: if we concentrate our efforts on our trainees, give them tasks, and provide them with feedback, their satisfaction and their performance increases.”
7 out of the 300 training companies in Dresden regularly organised such an event. Uta Händel, the technical manager of the BZG Hotel and Restaurant Industry, thanked the trainees at the end of the evening for a successful evening, and the hotel management for their dedication. The guests acclaim and the smiles of the trainees showed that all appreciated this evening.
