The purpose of the study is to comprehensively investigate the existing stages of establishment of personnel management system and attract new marketing levers and strategies for flexible adaptation of enterprises in a changing environment, and thus increase the competitiveness of the hospitality establishments. In the furtherance of this goal methods of information gathering, comparative analysis, scientific research and theoretical generalisation were used.

It is difficult to overestimate the importance of adaptation conditioned by new marketing innovations and a new approach in the establishment of the management system to new market conditions and consumer demands. A conceptual approach to media marketing for enterpises based on the POST method was proposed, which, in fact, is a set of basic goals based on strategic accents, a kind of task plan, the implementation of which provides business units with their own positions in the market of services considering the current conditions. In addition, given the specific nature of the hotel industry, the need to improve the human resources management system and to introduce the latest technology has been suggested.
