"Employees are the most important assets of an organization and in that respect the management has to ensure employee satisfaction in its operations in Kava. To that end an effective communications structure has to be built so that employees are comfortable with discussing their problems with the supervisors. In this respect, the management team that is sent from corporate headquarters initially will have to learn the local language as well. It is absolutely essential to train the local manpower in English so that they can communicate with the tourists."
