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.
"We have been working with DEVELOR since 2013 in development of communication skills and collaboration within our teams, using Insights Discovery methodology. We can appreciate flexibility and availability of DEVELOR’s trainers and consultant throughout our collaboration. Thank to that, they have always managed to secure our specific needs through adjusted formats and content of the trainings, while keeping standard of quality across all departments involved in the development programs. Of course, we greatly value especially the Insights Discovery methodology, which is represented by DEVELOR’s international network. It’s a perfect tool for self-discovery and improvement of collaboration. In connection with good trainer this brings high added value to our company. We are glad to recommend working with DEVELOR."Johanna Mezővári, HR Manager - UPC
"We selected Develor as our supplier to develop retail sales standards, training and mystery shopping for our stores. I appreciate that Develor really took time to listen to our needs and developed tailor-made programs for our company. Also, all trainers were proffesionals with substantial experience in sales. What I value most on our co-operation with Develor is that after the project had finished, Develor helped us to develop in-house trainers through the series of TTTs and handed over to us custom made training materials. Thanks to this, we are currenlty able to satisfy 90% of our training needs ourselves. ... Well, let the results speak – after 2-year long co-operation with Develor our company scored number 1 position in customer care and sales skills in an independent study of sports goods retailers in the Czech Republic when we beated many internationally recognised brands."Miroslav Martinec, General Manager - RockPoint
“After conducting preliminary consultations with Develor, we have come up with an appropriate form of an individual event with our team in the beginning of 2012 which aimed at dissolving different problems of people with various responsibilities, biases and characters. Although part of the participants being sceptic, Develor performed excellently:
- [they] managed to engage and keep the attention and to motivate even the most sceptic ones;
- [they] managed to explain in a comprehensive manner the main specifics of different people, which (sic.) helps everyone not only for good orienteering, but also for good communication with people;
- [they] managed to give details and provide depth in understanding individual peculiarities of key members of the team which was priceless. A proof for [their] professionalism is not only the general positive attitude of the participants, but also the facts that numerous conclusions were made which, I strongly believe, are useful for our structure.”Constantine Shalamanov, Executive Director - Lavena
"We have been working together with Develor on a Leadership Academy since 2009. Since we evaluated the first program as a success and a good investment into our business, we have started with a second group of leaders in 2011. When we were looking for a partner three years ago to help us to improve the leadership capability in our business, it was important for us to find an organization that is able to
- delivery high quality programs across our major markets
- work together with us in a flexible in business oriented manner that we achieve real competency rather than just deliver a training program
- ensure that the content of the program and the way it is delivered provides tailored solution in line with our company culture and processes
- apply and compare different tools and methods - 360 degree tools before and after, online and face-to-face tools, modular program structure, coaching, leader interviews, etc. to achieve maximum effectiveness
We are happy to work together with Develor since they fully satisfy the above criteria, and equally or even more important they proved to be an ethical business partner, seeking for a long term trusted relationship with its customers."Imre Vadász, Regional HR Director, SCSE - SONY
"Our relationship with Develor began 3.5 years ago. They have provided us with high quality, customer-oriented service ever since. This not only refers to their classical “soft” skill training courses, but also to “combined profile” programs such as their workshops based on economization. Following the training, the decrease of our inventory was noticeable even in terms of hard numbers. And this positive effect was lasting."Nándor Terényi, Head of Personnel Development Department - Budapest Electric Works
"In 2008 in cooperation with Develor, we have designed and carried out a training program targeting the managers of our buying department. The program was aiming at development of the interpersonal effectiveness and negotiation skills of the managers. The concept of the Insights development system enabled us to focus effectively on our pragmatic training activities supporting and developing skills and abilities of the participants while respecting and reacting on their personal characteristics. Professional pro-client orientation and qualified trainer having the expertise from FMCG sector were the next attributes that lead to our satisfaction and success of the training program. Thank you and we are looking forward to our coming cooperation."Lucia Spinerova, HR Manager - COOP Jednota Slovensko
