University of Kragujevac, Faculty of Hotel Management and Tourism, Vrnjačka Banja
Keywords: tourism destination employment; overnight stays; accommodation capacity; Serbia
The aim of this paper is to show that the number of tourism overnight stays and the number of beds are related with the scope and dynamics of employment in the hotel industry of Serbia. Serbia's most developed destinations (in the field of city tourism Belgrade and Novi Sad, spa tourism - Vrnjačka Banja and Sokobanja, and mountain tourism - Zlatibor and Kopaonik) were chosen as the subject of research. The first part of the paper discusses the connection between the study of tourist destinations, on the one hand, and human resources, on the other hand. In the second part of the paper, corresponding conclusions are drawn regarding the influence of human resources on the development of the leading tourist destinations in Serbia by using systematization and presentation of statistical data, by analyzing the quantification of the effect of employment on tourism overnight stays, based on regression analysis, using the analytic-synthetic and comparative methods.
