Dubai Way aims to train every customer-facing employee in the hospitality and customer service industry on the standards of customer service that define the Dubai brand
Over 1,800 associates of Emaar Hospitality Group, the hospitality and leisure business of Emaar Properties PJSC, have completed the ‘Dubai Way’ training launched by the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).
A strategic initiative by the Dubai College of Tourism (DCT), under DTCM, the ‘Dubai Way’ training has been launched to train every customer-facing employee in the hospitality and customer service industry on the standards of customer service that define the Dubai brand. The goal of the Dubai Way training is to regulate customer service training for the tourism and hospitality sector, enhance the visitor experience, support talent development and promote the tourism sector.
Emaar Hospitality Group’s senior leadership had committed to the ‘Dubai Way’ training, with the CEO, COO, Corporate Directors, General Managers and other senior leaders completing the programme in April 2018. A goal was set to train all guest-facing associates to complete the training by June, which has now been accomplished.
Olivier Harnisch, Chief Executive Officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “The Dubai Way programme has been truly insightful for all of us, enabling us to understand more about Dubai’s history, heritage and tourism offering. The online course also underlined what makes Dubai a stand-out destination, led by its focus on customer service and the warm welcome it extends to guests from all over the world. With the completion of the programme by our 1,800 plus associates, we are well-positioned to deliver on the Dubai brand of customer service and in turn contribute to strengthening the tourism and hospitality sectors.”
