APPROACH TO HR • Train workers for 18 months, not just 12 • Ensure that employees can deal with guests without consulting a supervisor • Teach people to improvise rather than do things by the book • Insist that employees place guests’ interests over the company’s • Have incumbent managers, not consultants, conduct training • Use timely recognition, not money, as reward • Ensure that recognition comes from immediate supervisors, not top management

The Ordinary Heroes & Their Extraordinary Service • The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai is ranked number 20 by Condé Nast Traveler in the overseas business hotel category. • Employees gave customer service a whole new meaning during the terrorist strike. • As many as 11 Taj Mumbai employees laid down their lives while helping between 1,200 and 1,500 guests escape.. • Designing an organization for extreme customer centricity requires several dimensions, the most critical of which Taj has managed to do.
CRM at Taj Palace, Mumbai • Guest Preference Sheet • Handling Complaints • Fidelo – A Property Management System • Wow Card • GRE Courtesy Call • GSTS (Guest Satisfaction Tracking System)
THE GAP MODEL ANALYSIS A conceptual model, developed to qualitatively measure service quality. Identifies five gaps within the process of any service design and delivery, which, in this case, leads to dissatisfaction of guests.
THE COMMUNICATION GAP • The Taj group has become a synonym for royalty worldwide • The communication that is established with the consumers is extensive and effective • The only gap that existed here is the inability of the hotel to communicate to its consumers beforehand that the Wi-Fi service provided in the rooms is chargeable separately as per usage
CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS • Taking feedback not only from the external customers but also internal customers • Proper check on the hotel staff and processes’ efficiency by the management • Regular track on the sales data for further leads and follow up • Treat all customers equally
