Causes of employee fluctuation and the need for stabilization in Slovak hotels
The issue of fluctuation and personnel stabilization is a subject of discussion and study by several domestic and foreign authors. A typical situation in the Slovak labour market is a combination of factors for increasing demand for labour and a lack of qualified employees forcing hotel managers to internally change the perception of employees in terms of stability. The aim of the paper is to specify the causes of fluctuation and propose options for stabilizing the rate of turnover in the hospitality industry. A prerequisite for meeting the stated goal is to conduct a sociological inquiry in selected chains and independent hotels in Slovakia. This was achieved through a survey of hotels in 2018 highlighting the respondents' views on solving the challenges caused by increased fluctuation and the need for stability. The results identify the main reasons for employment turnover and helped formulate general conclusions and recommendations for the improvement of employee turnover.
