Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE TH MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 As a hotelconsultant based here in Thailand, I frequently observe hotel and resort ownersand senior managers informing employees that it is the owners or managementswish that everyone should work as a big family! Even every new employeeis informed that this is the owners wish and concept!It all sounds so good, so sweet, so kind and so inviting,doesnt it?However, basedon over 24 years of sold hands-on and consultation experience here in Thailandand Asia, I cannot recall one single hotel or resort which has been verysuccessful with that kind of vision and philosophy! However, there mightbe some very unique and very small hotels and resorts with a very simpleoperation where this concept might work!All those otherhotels and resorts, representing the fast majority of businesses, did end upwith a very political working environment, low productivity, high staffturnover, low profits, not so good service and out-dated concepts and systems,and most times, they owners and management did think they are still doing verywell until the operation was not controllable anymore!Some might asknow why those hotels and resorts with such lovely vision end up with such afailure.Again, from myextensive experience and research, the followings do contribute to failure whenchoosing a family style working environment here in Thailand and some partsof south-east Asia.Before readingthe below, you need to be aware that family values and connections here inThailand are very strong and it is considered a big shame if someone betraysthe family or not work towards the families shared goals. Here, a familymust be protected, respected and cared for at all time! It is also notacceptable or tolerable that any action or behavior of elders or more seniorfamily members are questioned or criticized!So here we go As all employees are encouraged and directly asked to treat and respect each other as a brothers or sisters, employees most time would NEVER properly point out, comment or even criticize other family members even if there are terrible wrong things done on purpose!Employees will most of the time NOT report to anybody if his family member does any un-ethical behavior or even corruption. Employees will NOT want to comment on any family members performance, attendance or leak of skills. Family members DO work together for the benefits of the family ONLY! This often ends up that a hotel or resort loses out on opportunities and income. Frankly speaking, it is hard that everyone who works for a hotel with family concept really work as One Big Family. Most of the time there are several small families in one hotel. Several small groups of families carrying their own interest and power depending on seniority age and hot line to owners and management. Family members must be very considerate to other family members feelings at all times. Therefore NOBODY wants to follow up on any outstanding issues, work and to dos to complete tasks. (In Thailand its called Kreng-Jai) The result is that there is very little progress! Family style management ALMOST ALWAYS turns out that certain employees have the mobile phone number of the owners in their pocket and those employees use this somehow earned privilege to show off to other family members and report whatever the owner wants to hear (and many times untrue). The result of this, that un-touchable employees are created.Family member who are older or more senior are trusted more in certain families. Therefore nobody wants to listen to any younger or more junior family member. Even if the younger, newer or more junior family members have better knowledge, skills, ethics and education. Senior or older family members sometimes take the freedom NOT to follow rules and regulation which is very often accepted by mom or dad simply because the senior family members did something right and good about 23 years ago or knowing well what mom and dad likes to eat, drink or hear. The result is that other family members feel strongly that dad or mom (owner or management) is not fair. In most families, additional benefits are given depends upon the seniority and age, and NOT based on skills and knowledge. .and finally, as in most families around the world, most of the hard working, eager and foresighted family members leave their own family earlier than expected to find an even better life! Sometimes they visit the old family, but they never look back.As one of my former superiors said, People Are Createdby individuals and society!Good or Bad!Ethical or un-ethical!Professional or not professional!As a hotelconsultant, I know that there would be no politics in any hotel or resort ifindividuals particularly owners / management would not give other individualsthe opportunity to be political!As seniormanagers and decision makers, we all have the power to create professionalsor we can choose to create just family members who are trained to followingonly traditions and other people. Many of those "familymembers" will never become trend setters, just simple followers.
