This fear create many problems like they do not work properly, losing their performance level, sometimes even leave their job, they feel frustration on their workplaces.

So it is also the big issues. If they not improve their service so consumer are not willing to visit their hotel. So they maintain their front house staff, their services, they also providing better services to their consumer, if they are providing so they do not achieve their goal of the businesses. Employees turnover, it is most common operational issue in Hilton hotel in business staff turnover this hotel employees work full-time it is not necessary to mention they do work only holiday or weekend so this industry need to finding long time workers to manage working hours (Mahadevan, 2015).

The main reason for the absences of proper management no any industry mange their work so it is curial, it helps to providing discipline, maintaining the interpersonal relationship among the employees between their subordinates (Davis and et.al, 2018). This types of theory providing the authority and responsibility of the work and giving each department work in properly way and it is also helpful for protecting the financials resources means manage fund in effective manner. The theory of operational management is given below:
Planing: it is the process of thinking in advance, it is important for making plan for future or achieving the goal of the organisational (Davis and et.al, 2018). Hilton hotel also make their plan in advance regarding their work like what is to be done in the future, how many services provided their customer in different level, how to motivated their employees so these are the plan which help to retaining or increasing the efficiency of the worker.
Organising: it is related to the organisation is to providing raw material, personnel, capital. It is divide into two parts, the material corporation and the human organisation. So after making plan Hilton hotel manager have need to how organise their work so they manage their personnel issues, fulfil businesses requirement and managing their duty in effective manner (Xu and Gursoy, 2015). This hotel manager is responsible to assignee their worker duties like providing services to customer in proper discipline and maintain healthy environment at workplaces. This hotel also defines their staff duties clearly.
Command: the motive of this aspect set a organisation goal Hilton hotel manager giving a command to get optimum return all the staff of in the interest of the whole business. They have to provide proper knowledge in personally their employees, the aim of the hospitality industry work done in unity full energy, taking initiative and providing best services to their customer. They also maintain loyalty among the staff as well as peoples . This hotel conduct periodic audit in their business and they use proper utilization of resources.

Hilton hotel manager divide their work in according to different department like front house perform their dusty in effective way or their section is also completing their task in peacefully in proper coordination. The aim of this hotel is to running their business in clear co-operation.
Control: it is very important term, it works on peoples, things, actions, it is the process of taking appropriate action influences other for making the best result and controlling operational management work. Hilton hotel also control their internal department and all the work control by supervisors (Walker and Walker, 2016). Controlling is the last function of the management it is upward, if planing is must in every businesses so controlling is also important without this no any organisation control entire businesses operations.
These are the theory of operational management is very important for giving right direction or also help to achieving the goal of the organisation. It is also help to providing the rules, methods procedures of the businesses. It providing the division of work in every employees. If Hilton hotel manager implement these types of theory. so they earn more profit and providing customer satisfaction as well motivated their staff (Davis and et.al, 2018). It also hep to make effective plan and controlling all the work in effective way. Planing and controlling both aspect is very important with or plan of action this hotel not reach their goal or without controlling this organisation can not manage entire work so both are equally important.

If Hilton hotel manager are not using cloud based project management softerware, scheduling become even difficult so they not mention every employer task per day.
