As a hospitality business, providing excellent customer service is key to success. And one of the most critical factors in delivering that service is having a well-trained and motivated staff. Here are five tips for improving customer satisfaction through effective staffing:
- Hire the right people: This may seem obvious, but it’s essential to have staff members who are friendly, outgoing, and genuinely interested in providing great service. When interviewing candidates, look for people who have a positive attitude and a willingness to go above and beyond for customers.
