C. SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATION

Ms. Leony is relatively new with the hotel who was hired last October 2000 as a Banquet Manager. Prior to her present occupation, she was a manager in Hotel Kartika Candra for 29 years where she occupied various positions. Suffice to say, her educational background plus her work experience supports her well in hotel management (food and beverages, housekeeping, property).

Ms. Leony loves her life and enjoys work. Her social nature and work personality. Personal qualities appropriately compliment her current position. She likes to help people and see them happy. She does her responsibilities as the hotels’ wedding consultant with mastery and professionalism since this department is one of the biggest income contributors. She also trains her subordinates in preparation for her replacement. She claims that she has achieved to improve the Bridal Display Centre by initiating a change in location. Despite her short stint, she seemed to have accomplished more than what her predecessor did. An area she needs to look into is her tendency to be impatient with her staff, despite their close relationship.

Ms Leony has more than adequate and rich hotel work experience, which she brings along with her to Sun Jaya Hotel. Her entry to this organization could be valuable by way of sharing her knowledge and training potential candidate who is likely to replace and continue the success of the wedding department. On the other hand, Ms. Leony capabilities have reached its optimum point and admittedly, happy and content in her career but may not be able to cope with any dramatic change. We recommend keeping her in the present position.
