Hospitality workers being trained in housekeeping
GINA, GUYANA, Wednesday, May 17, 2017
Guyana continues to promote itself as the ideal tourism destination. Initiatives are being launched, and training seminars held to improve all aspects of the sector. One such aspect is housekeeping.
The Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA), in its efforts to increase awareness and elevate the level of service and standards provided by hospitality workers today, commenced a housekeeping training as part of a series of training programmes scheduled for 2017.
This capacity-building initiative is being conducted from 9:00hrs to 16:00hrs at Tower
Suites, Main Street for small to medium scale hotels, since special effort will be paid to this group of hotels in 2017. They were encouraged to seize the opportunity to have their staff trained in this pertinent area.
Director of the GTA, Indranauth Haralsingh thanked all participants for their attendance. He noted that their attendance is an investment made by their employers to raise their current level of standard and service at their respective hotels.
Haralsingh encouraged participants to share the knowledge gained during the sessions with their colleagues who are unable to attend. He noted that the sharing of information will allow the capacity of housekeeping staff to develop collectively.
Training sessions are being conducted by Expert Trainer and former General Manager of the Pegasus Hotel, Susan Isaacs who possesses a wealth of training experience in the tourism and hospitality sector.
A certificate will be issued to participants at the end of the two-day training which concludes tomorrow.
