Key third party members of the national council include: Mr. Vinod Zutshi, IAS, Former Secretary of Ministry of Tourism, Mr. V.K.Duggal, IAS, Former Home Secy and former Manipur and Mizoram Governor, Mr. N.R. Wasan, IPS, Former Director General of Bureau of Police Research and Development Ms. Kiron Prabhakar, Partner & Founder, PAV Law Offices. In step with the suggestions from the first meeting of the national council, the initiative to set up regional chapters was executed.
Presenting the pillars of OPEN to the Council, namely, Business, Growth, Engagement and Recognition, and the various initiatives OYO has been undertaking for each of these key pillars, Aditya Ghosh, CEO, India & South Asia mentioned, “The suggestions and discussions in the regional chapter meetings of OYO India’s Partner Advisory Council lay a strong foundation for what’s to follow. By identifying key areas of improvement and closing plan of actions quickly for activities such as provisioning dedicated hotel management resources, improving brand awareness for mid-market brands and investing in quality checks aggressively, a lot of progress has been made already and we will look to share updates as well as highlight areas for further improvement in our next national PAC meeting in November.”
Notably, OYO Hotels & Homes also organised several rewards and recognition events across many cities under the aegis of the council where OYO hotel owners who demonstrated customer service excellence in each city were duly recognised. The key cities in the first phase include Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Chandigarh.
