Introduction

Risk is present everywhere in those places where the competition is present in the market. It has been seen that in last few years, the hotel industry is also in the influence of the risk. The hotel industry is also facing the down fall in terms of business because of recession in the economy of world. There are many factors such as terrorist attack and natural environmental risks, which affect the business operations of hotel industry. Risk is the important feature in the hospitality. There can be various risks while operating the business in the hospitality industry. In other words, it can be said that risk can be related to all the operating terms in the industry such as risk to human assets, and risk to financial assets (Kim, Lee, & Ham, 2013).

                                                                                           (Source: Kim, Lee, & Ham, 2013)

Based on the research of different authors on the different catagories of risk, it is clear that there are various catagories of risk available in the hospitality industry. This report is basically focused on the notion of the risk associated with the hospitality industry. Along with this, the report will also focus on the venue risk analysis based on the previous assignment. For the venue risk analysis, the hotel Grand Roxy will be taken.

 

Part 1

The notion of risk

Risk can be described as the combination of the consequences with the expected events. Basically, there are consequences and hurdles that can be threats for the success of any industry. There are various risks that can take place in the hotel industries. There are many researches who gave different alternatives about the risk based on their readings and researches.  For example, the finance researchers see the risk based on financial perspective; examine the risk in terms of profit and the sources of government focus on the risk based on safety point of view. Based on the various points of studies, the risk can be categorized in the different sectors. Basically, researchers have divided the risk into four categories i.e. risk to financial assets, risk to physical assets, risk to human assets and risk to non-physical assets (Carlino, 2014).

Risk to financial assets

Financial assets are important for the business activities in the organization as they show the monetary value of the services provided by hospitality sector. Financial asset in the hospitality industry can be described as the cash which is given by the customers for the provided services in the hotel. Basically, financial assets are the kind of contractual right to receive the cash from another entity such as guest and the customers and the agreement to pay for the services used. From the definitions, it is clear that hospitality industry should have fair understanding of financial assets in the business. Risk in the financial assets can be theft, and fraud. Along with this, there can be multifarious risk such as foreign exchange rate, interest rate, and broken contracts. Profitability can also be an issue in the financial assets risk (Chan, & Lam, 2013).

Risk to physical asset

Another category of risk is risk in physical asset. The physical asset in the hospitality industry includes vehicle, building and equipments, gardens and pools, fixtures furnishing and fittings, stock and documents, ride and games, and property of shareholders in the company such as member, guests and staff. Risk in this category can take place due to the various resources such as lack of training and mishandling of equipments. There can be theft and misuse of the things in this category. If there is unmanaged garden and premises, there will be the risk of damage to the people or other physical assets (Aven, 2012).

 

Risk to human assets

Human assets include the name of various shareholders with the hospitality industry. Basically, human assets include customers, guests, visitors, members, owners, sub-contractors, staff member, management and the members of the community in which the enterprise is operating. The human assets should be managed carefully by the hotels. The human asset need more care. The risk of human asset in the enterprise can be very costly to handle. Management of the hotel needs to work for long time to overcome from this risk. Along with this, during the recovery from this risk, there is the need to compensate by the management. To overcome from human assets risk, there can be large settlements, legal cost, and loss of business due to damage (Bharwani & Mathews, 2012).

Risk to non-physical assets

The last category of risk is non-physical assets risk in the hospitality industry. As the name of this asset, these are intangible category assets so it is difficult to manage the non-physical assets. Management of the enterprise should focus on the different elements of the assets. Non-physical assets of the enterprise include workforce motivation, copyrights, computer programs, intellectual capital, brand name, brand image, patents, intellectual property, company reputation and customer relations. There are many managers who are unaware of non-physical asset in the enterprise. To protect the enterprise from this type of risk, it is important to create awareness about the risk among the managers. By creating the awareness, enterprise will be able to overcome from the damage of the risk (Herrero, & Martin, 2012).

Importance of risk management process in the hospitality industry

It is clear from the above stated risk that it can be dangerous for every organization. There is the need to manage the risk effectively in the hospitality industry. It is necessary to identify the risk and then it must be evaluated by the management of the enterprise. Risk management is the important part of the strategic management in the organization. It is the process by which the enterprise identifies and addresses the risks with their outcomes (Mundt, 2008). The main aim of the risk management is to identify and treatment of the risk. The objective of the risk management is to maintain the sustainable value of the enterprise in the industry. Along with this, it is also helpful in increasing the profitability of the enterprise. The process of risk management must include effective policy and program. Step by step planning will be helpful to overcome from all the risks associated with the operations in the hotel industry (Grace, Leverty, Philips & Shimpi, 2015).

                                                                                                              Figure 3: Risk Management Process

                                                                                                                        (Source: Tang, 2006)

In the above figure, the risk management process is described. Risk in the enterprise is discovered by the management, member or staff. Management then should evaluate the risk and make the decision to overcome form the risks. The management has to accept the risk and has to prevent the enterprise from those risks (Tang, 2006).

Part 2

Risk ranking system

To get the value and appreciation for the risk management system form all the stakeholders in the enterprise, the management has to take strategic decisions. In order to implement the successful risk management process in the organization, it is important to measure the range of risk (Rittichainuwat, 2013). By the measurement, management will be aware about the potential risk in the industry. According to Kohr, risk ranking is the crucial part in the risk management process and this can be divided into three parts. These three functional parts are interrelated and help to classify the risk based on the ranking (Israeli, 2007). Those functional areas are frequency, cost and severity. Along with this, there is the concept of Risk factor value in which the risk will be ranked based on the cases of accidents. In the risk ranking system, there are two types of ranking based on measurements i.e. reversed ranking and uninformative ranking. Reversed ranking includes those cases which have highly rated risk and on the other hand uninformative ranking includes those cases in which all the small and big risks are associated and have severity ranking (Aven, 2009).

 

Venue Risk Analysis (VRA) form

There can be various risks in a hospitality industry such as operational risk, political risk, and market risk. To identify and analyze the risk in the industry is very important. In this report, the risk assessment will be done with the venue risk analysis form. For the discussion, hotel Grand Roxy will be taken. The venue risk analysis is focused on Grand Roxy receptionist that is situated in Brighton-Le-Sands near Sydeny International and Domestic Airports. Having the grand size, the hotel can serve about three hundred guests. In this report, all probable risk will be analyzed effectively. In terms of design, the location of Grand Roxy is the subject to criticism because the location of the hotel is near the beach which is the subject to additional cost of repairing. The Grand Roxy is used for various occasions, business parties and meetings. There can be various risks during the business meetings and occasions such as fire, electricity, fall from height, slip, strips and falls, leasers, smokes and fogs, glazing and mirrors, gas, High temperatures, and violence (DeMicco, 2007). First of all, the risk will be identified that are to be managed by the risk management system. After that the risk rating will be set in terms of numbers. The risk will be numbered on the basis of the frequency. The format of the risk rating is given below:

                                                                                              Risk Rating

Risk

(Likelihood)

Negligible

1

Unlikely

Slight

2

Possible

Moderate

3

Quite Possible

Severe

4

Likely

5

On the basis of this criterion, the risk will be numbered so that the most harmful risk can be identified. By the risk rating, the hotel will be able to overcome from those risks that affect the business operation in the industry (Kim, Farrish & Schrier, 2013). The identified risk and the venue risk analysis form are described below:

Further, which risk comes under 5-15, that is medium risk and which risk comes under 16-25, that is high risk. Low risk means the risk can be acceptable, medium risk means the risk is acceptable with sufficient measure control in the place and high risk means the action must be taken on the highest priority to reduce the risk. Based on the above Value risk analysis form, it has been observed that in the Grand Roxy, the risk has been categorized according to the risk level. It can be seen that the risk of fire, Slip, strips and falls, Leasers, Smokes and fogs, Gas are the medium risks which are acceptable by some control. Electricity, Falls from heights, Violence, High Temperature, and Glazing and mirrors are high risk because they can be the cause of sudden death or can harm badly (Herrero & Martin, 2012).

  • Hotel should focus on their risk management process to deal with the risk of different catagories. There should be effective strategies to prevent from the risk.
  • Industry should create the right culture for the employees. Right culture will motivate the employees to overcome from the risks.
  • Along with this, company should clarify the roles and responsibilities of the employees so that they don’t face risk in future.
  • Company should recognize the limitation of risk assessments by identifying risk in the business.
