From concept to reality – Develor Hotel Solutions
Develor, as preferred training and consulting partner of many international and local chains and independent hotels, provides wide range of customized services to the hotel industry. When visiting our partners’ properties in most cases the service mindset has been appropriate; this is expected but less appreciated by the guests. If you want to stand out from the crowd you need the extra mile. We can state that the proactive sales attitude requires development.
If you want to change people’s behavior start with their attitude and finish with those systems that maintain the new way of operation. New knowledge and skills are fundamental but never enough. Develor provides professional services in four fields generating tangible business results.
Most of the projects starts with an extensive diagnostics of attitude, skills and internal systems and standards. If needed the next step is the processing: the design or improvement of the crucial systems in place in order to create the most supportive environment for the best services. The fully tailored training courses will be built on the results of the diagnostic phase, identifying the critical behaviors of the certain group of people and the development areas. Studies and researches underpin our solid experience: the implementation support (known also as follow-up activities) are the most important step of any development process. If we want to achieve sustainable change in mind-set and behavior we should put special emphasis on the enforcement activities after the training.
"The assignment was about to attain the Customer Satisfaction Survey; screening 90 companies, from 18 countries in 10 languages; and to prepare valuable feedback analysing both qualitative and quantitative.

"Develor has carried out a training Finances for Non-financial Managers for our company. The training was based on everyday situations that our employees are coping with. It was focused on active practice using business simulation, where the participants could develop and practice the acquired theoretical knowledge and skills. I highly appreciate that the theory and practice was well balanced.
The performance of the trainer on the trainings mirrored his long time real life experience. This enabled him via a number of examples from practice to explain the presented issues more effectively. I highly appreciate the professional, flexible and quick work and approach of Develor that was supported by a deep understanding of the SkyEurope Airlines needs."

Based on positive experience with DEVELOR Hungary and the discussions with the general manager and HR manager at the COLAS group in Slovakia we had decided to start the cooperation in training and development at our employees in 2013. During our 2 year cooperation we have implemented two key projects - series of workshops “Safety Attitude“ for our site managers and the talent development program ‘Leadership Academy.“ On top of these programs we also implemented the presentation skills development program for the management team.
We perceive our cooperation with DEVELOR positively and we can recommend their service and approach to other companies In Slovakia. We consider DEVELOR‘s biggest benefit their ability to transform out requirements into quality training program and at the same time focus the attention and accent on the priorities at the company and its business goals.
