June E. Clarke PhD, Julaine Rigg PhD, Cynthia Mayo PhD

The case discusses how a booming and prosperous hotel, Last Resort, lost its glory overtime. The case highlights the events that caused the hotel demise.

Consequently, there was a loss of employee morale, poor management, absenteeism, poor productivity among many other internal issues.
