Purchases represent a major stake in the quality of items and services offered to our customers at the Starling Hotel Geneva: food products, hospitality products and the linen in the room cannot suffer from any mediocrity.
With this in mind, the employees of the “Cost control” department play a daily partition calibrated to the millimeter and wisely juggle with orders, deliveries, inventory management & quality control at the arrival of goods.
In 2015, a reflection on the impact of purchases on the hotel’s carbon footprint was conducted by employees.
The results of this analysis led to a major overhaul of inventory management and purchasing policy :
- Reorganization of storage areas, integrating ergonomic factors and postural constraints (heavy loads, risk of falls, …)
- Optimized inventory management, generating improved supplier satisfaction.
