During the 3-day training, attendees will learn a lot on development and improvement of  the ins and outs of HR in the tourism industry. This assembly will also tackle issues on entrepreneurship and sector employment.

Just like in most companies, the HR department plays an important role. First, employees are pre-selected through this department so it’s really up to the HR employees and bosses whether or not they are hiring someone duly fit for the job. It is also through this department that customer relations employees are shaped and trained to do their job properly.

Dean Edieserdela Santa, Overall Committee Chairman for the 4th Tourism HR Congress, declared, “The goal is to make tourism more sustainable by examining management practices and to upgrade skills and knowledge. How people in the industry interact with tourists is an integral part of the total experience that is why there is a need to invest in people and create a balance among the industry’s economic, social, and environmental components,”

This year, it is in the agenda of our country to pass the ASEAN requisite for trainers and assessors via the ASEAN Mutual Recognition Arrangement and the ASEAN Qualifications Reference Framework; also included in the congress are detailed explanations on topics regarding housekeeping, front office, food and beverage, cookery and travel services and attaining objectives in these two frameworks.

“We want to bridge the gap between the industry and the education and training sectors, and examine the factors and issues that influence human resource development industry,”  as stated by Maria Cristina Aquino, TIBFI Chairman.
