Benefits for businesses and individuals:
Thousands of tourism and hospitality staff engaged with the Glasgow Welcomes-Online module in advance of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, including 2,500 Clyde-sider volunteers. Businesses from a wide variety of tourism related sectors have experienced the benefits of this training, including Two Fat Ladies restaurant, Holiday Inn Theatreland, SPT Underground, The National Piping Centre, and Glasgow Airport.
Benefits reported by these businesses include increased staff motivation, confidence and customer service skills, with improved local knowledge of the city and its attractions for visitors.
Many of these businesses have now incorporated the Glasgow Welcomes-Online module into their regular staff induction training.
“All members of staff have completed the Glasgow Welcomes-Online module and I’ve noticed a huge increase in customer satisfaction. Staff are much more confident and creative when advising tourists on where to eat, top visitor attractions and travel advice. They use their contacts in local restaurants to reserve tables or recommend an evening event, which exceeds customer expectations, leading them to recommend us or, even better, come back to visit The National Piping Centre again and again.…”
Gemma Cannon, General Manager, The National Piping Centre.
