Executive Summary This paper shall demonstrate through the principles of organisational behaviour how the Ritz-Carlton was successful in establishing a leadership brand that empowers employees to become leaders in providing exceptional customer service.

By providing empowering leadership, enacting customer-centric philosophies and values as well as maintaining a communication style that keeps the work force focused on the company goals, the Ritz has grown to become one of the finest brands in the world. As the leader in the hospitality industry, the Ritz-Carlton has become the gold standard because of their Gold Standards, which highlight the distinctive values that are the cornerstone of their organisation in the delivery of customer service. . Introduction The legacy of Ritz-Carlton? s luxury hotel experience began in 1898 with hotelier Cesar Ritz? s vision of excellent personalized service while managing the Ritz Hotel in Paris and the Carlton hotel in London. 1 In the United States, The Ritz-Carlton Boston, opened in 1927, represents the best of the Ritz-Carlton brand through its attention to detail, practical innovation, and creation of unrivaled customer experience.

Horst Schulze, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Ritz-Carlton, not only expanded the chain from four US-based hotels in 1983 to a multi-billion-dollar property management company with 40 properties worldwide in 2000, but he also ensured that the century-old Boston-based Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company? s legendary service was maintained. . In fact, by every measure of excellence in the hospitality industry, Ritz-Carlton Hotels are rated as the finest or among the finest year after year, 4 3 2 inning all major awards in the industry (see Exhibit 1), including the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 1992 and 1999 – making Ritz the only service company to have won this award twice. Simon Cooper succeeded Schulze as President and COO in 2001 and is currently managing 72 hotels in 24 countries (see Exhibit 2) with over 38,000 employees. 5 Page 2 of 30 Organisational Behaviour MGMT8501 The Ritz-Carlton: An Organisational Behaviour Analysis Assessment 2 Exhibit 1: The Ritz-Carlton List of Awards HOTEL AWARDS
