The ‘Procurement Person of the Year’ award at the 11th Hotelier India Awards 2019 in economy to budget category went to Devendra Sharma from ibis Jaipur Civil Lines. Here, is a short excerpt where we get to know a bit more about Devendra as he shares his thoughts on Hotelier India.
The Hotelier India Award is the most prestigious hospitality award in India, and winning it means a lot. Being recognised for the efforts and that too at such a grand level is everyone’s dream.
Key factors behind my win are teamwork and the opportunities provided by my seniors to showcase my skills, which always motivated me to give my best.
Everyone looks up to the hospitality industry’s Oscars‘. Winning this award is like a shot in the arm. It has given a positive turn to my career graph wherein name, fame and efforts has been beautifully recognised at all levels.
Me and my team are inspired by our GM Saumitra Chaturvedi and his ‘never ever give up’ attitude.
My outlook towards work is to work harder with perseverance and patience. I believe that one must have self-belief and right intent towards each and every task he has been assigned to.
I look at everything as a learning whether it is success or a failure.
I am looking forward to taking on bigger managerial responsibilities in the next few years and potentially even reach the EXCOM position within the organisation.
I have a vission for the future that I want and I am working towards it, whole heatedly with my team. I firmly believe that my goals and targets will help me map my future.
Hospitality industry is all about personalisation & digitalisation. It’s one of the fastest growing industry where connecting hearts is the most important aspect.
