Royal Orchid Hotels Ltd. has given many people, the way to realize their dreams in life. Views of some Employees about ROHL.
Straight from our hearts of some employees......
Mr. Shekar Bhargava, Executive Vice President
When I joined Hotel Harsh as General Manager, I was expecting to be a part of a growing company. Initially, though I was getting many offers from many other chains of hotels, and after seeing Mr. Baljee’s Vision & Mission, I took a bold decision to continue with Mr. Baljee.
When Royal Orchid Hotel is opened in 2001, I was very happy to take up the responsibility of Food & Beverages for the opening session.
From 2001 onwards the company never looked back, and today we have 12 hotels in our group and 4 more hotels will be opening by 2009-2010.
When I joined there was no occupancy through out the country and we had to direct some funds to open Royal Orchid Hotels and Harsha had to do lots of innovative planning to acquire the market share. That was the time when we started doing Business lunches to many MNCs like ITPL, Infosys, Mico, GE etc. We use to do a sale of 18 Lacs per month and nearly 2200 lunches per month.
The aspects which I like in this company are our MD’s Vision & Mission and ability to achieve the goal within a short span of time. Being at the senior management position, employees has given lots of respect and love to me and my decisions. I feel the biggest USP of all our properties is their location and their vicinity.
The areas of improvement is Training our staff more into operations and to bring up the standards of all our properties up to the standard of a five star brand in terms of technology, structure & service.
At the time of opening of our first five star property in Bangalore i.e. Hotel Royal Orchid I received a call from our MD at 11th hour and was been offered to take care of entire F&B operations of that tremendous property. Secondly, I still remember the day when our property Harsha catered the President of India. Eventually we have even done a catering of 8000 people in MICO during their Annual Employee Celebration Day.
Overall, my experience in this group is really Excellent......
That's why we say...... Expect more......
Mr. P K Padmanabhan, General Manager-ROC
I joined this group with an expectation of becoming a GM or Regional Manager for their entire group which has been fulfilled.
Every day is a new day for me at work. I love my work and that's why has been associated with group for long.
The first and foremost thing which I like about this company is, it is very vibrant and it’s a growing company. People are very good and cooperative. Hard work and effective leadership is always been recognized in this group.
As we are a growing company we need to focus more on Training and Development. We need to improve the Infra structure facilities and need to strive more to acquire a large pie of market share.
Royal Orchid Hotels Limited has really given me a good quality of life. This company has always been with me in all my good as well as bad phases of life. The management is very supportive, encouraging and understanding.
I am not able to recall any particular incident & memorable day ion this company, as everyday is a memorable day for me since the day I have joined this company. The most important aspect is that I leave with a smile everyday when I leave my work place.
Mr. Arjun Rao, Assistant Admin Manager-Corporate
I am not a hotel Management graduate and now I am associated with this group as Asst. Admin Manager – Corporate. It looks like a dream come true.
I still remember my first day when I met Mr. Baljee 25 years back. I was in need of a job and was hired as Office Assistant and from that day I have turned back and followed the good work with high spirit.
I have been a part of all ups and downs in this company. I still remember those initial days when we were not having Brand name and we use to and approach the clients on personal level and get business from them.
The best part of the company is during the phases of growth, it has never forgotten the old time companionship with its old employees. Not only have me, many of the old employees stilled the part of the growing market share.
The best moment of my life during my journey with this Group is, when I completed my 25 years of service with this company and I went to our MD and shared this information with him. I was really privileged when he made a small speech in front of all top Management people and recognized my contribution and offered me a cash voucher of Rs. 25,000/-.
