This is a research thesis attempting to contribute further to the understanding of the manpower considerations involved in the management of isolated resorts. These manpower dimensions are to an extent unique for they are pertinent not only to the content and context of the work environment, but also to the living conditions provided as the employees are in close proximity to each other at all times, on and off the job.
The research investigates four main areas:- the biographical characteristics of existing employees, their likes and dislikes about work at the resort, managerial style and managerial practices. These areas are investigated using the total sample and further by dividing the total sample in biographically homogeneous groups.
To an extent the research identifies the type of person(s) more likely to be satisfied working on an isolated resort location, depending on the operating parameters of that resort.
