First impressions form fast. In the hospitality industry, which includes restaurants, hotels, and entertainment facilities, an initial good impression is critical and hinges on clean, fully functioning facilities and a friendly, competent staff.
Especially in a post-Covid society, providing clean and safe accommodations is paramount. Facilities managers and owners are now taking extra steps to ensure the highest cleanliness standards, including upgrading air filtration systems, installing no-touch technologies and contactless services, and reconfiguring spaces to promote social distancing. Additionally, automation is being implemented to combat labor shortages and improve overall efficiency. Improvements to meet green building expectations, anticipate guests’ needs with a more personalized experience, and ensure guests’ safety are paramount.
