Human Rights as a New Hospitality Resource

USA, Clearwater, Florida. September 22, 2021

The International Institute of Modern Butlers has launched a web site dedicated to educating all citizens of all countries on their Human Rights as given in the United Nation's 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). This initiative was taken after it was determined that literally nobody in the world, when surveyed, even knew they had rights, let alone what those 30 rights are.

This was relevant to the Institute in particular, and the hotel industry in general, because both have been knocked sideways by the governmental responses to Covid-19, with hotel closures littering the landscape, reduced occupancy being mirrored by reduced service, reduced staffing levels paradoxically followed by hiring difficulties, RevPAR and profits down, and the list goes on, including the usual casualties such as training when budgets tank. Constant change, fear-mongering, and uncertainty from the prospect of endless shutdowns, travel bans, restrictions, and fines add to the challenge for owners and management.

Beyond the shuttering of hospitality are human rights violations the world over that have existed for thousands of years and which the UDHR highlights and forbids. The new web site,, offered as a public service, provides short videos on each of these human right as well as key milestones regarding individual rights being secured against government overreach in civilization's persistent drive over the last 2,500 years to achieve a civil society. As Human Rights cannot be taken away by governments, according to Human Right #30, for any reason whatsoever, including public safety, widespread knowledge of these Human Rights will help push back against violations and provides another tool in hospitality's toolbox for normalizing the industry.

Sales & Marketing: Integrating Technology

The Sales & Marketing department is responsible for maximizing a hotel's revenue by developing programs to increase occupancy and to make profitable use of its meeting and leisure facilities. Increasingly, managers are utilizing sophisticated digital technology to help them achieve those goals. Virtual Reality is being integrated into booking engines which provide potential guests the opportunity to tour a property from afar, including wedding, event and food & beverage facilities. Voice Search has also become a popular marketing tool. Using smart home devices, it's now possible for customers to book hotels entirely through voice commands. Chatbots are becoming more ubiquitous as hotels seek to refine their online customer service. Chatbots can answer common questions, push key marketing messages, increase direct bookings, and even guide customers through the booking process. Finally, hotels are already preparing for the debut of the Metaverse and planning how sales and marketing departments will fully participate. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the sales and marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting and how they are benefiting from them.
