Travel and Hospitality: Delivering Safety, Service, Sustainability and Security
What are the four fundamental principles that can help you deliver unforgettable experiences for every guest, every time?
It is hard to ignore the growing influence of the more widely traveled and discerning guest. Through review sites and social media, it is easier than ever before for your customers to voice their opinions. To engage them and build long-term relationships, you need to ensure that every experience, and every review, is great.
Whether you represent a hotel, tour operator or one of the many other companies within the tourism sector, the interactions you have with leisure, business or millennium travelers must all reinforce the message of excellence in performance, standards and quality.
That is why observing the following four principles of safety, service, sustainability and security excellence is essential.
Travelers’ safety at all times must be the number one priority for any hospitality business. Any issues with the management of confidential customer information, food intoxication, water or air contamination, as well as infrastructure can negatively affect your brand and operations.
Exceptional satisfaction is the reason many travelers return to the same properties year-on-year. That is why motivating employees to exemplify your brand values in every interaction, direct or indirect, with guests is vital.
Sustainability has rapidly become a deciding factor when travelers choose service providers, destinations and hotels. Environmental impacts, such as the energy and water used and the approach taken to employee welfare, waste management, and integration with local communities, play a key role in influencing customer and stakeholder perceptions of your brand.
Any business can fall victim to deliberate harm. Security risks can emanate from intruders and other outsiders, rogue staff and contractors, and even guests and other customers. We ensure security by promoting a proactive and preventive culture. Our methods are supported by discreet, tailored physical and procedural controls and based on risk-based evidence.
