Jamaica recommits to service excellence
« on: April 28, 2009, 01:55:56 AM »
The Ritz Carlton Rose Hall Resort & Spa in Montego Bay was the venue selected to host Jamaica’s first annual “Tourism Service Excellence Awards” on April 24 to recognize and applaud the work of organizations and individuals during 2008. Officially launched in July 2008, the Tourism Service Excellence Awards was created to recognize organizations and individuals who display exceptional commitment, leadership and innovation in customer service and care. “We created the Tourism Service Excellence Awards to reward individuals and organizations providing the highest quality customer service, and in the process, foster a better understanding of the importance of customer care and service to the success of our tourism industry, which is a driving force of Jamaica’s economy and one of our country’s largest earners of foreign exchange,” said Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett. “We believe that developing a program to recognize consistent excellence and ‘high touch service’ is one way of measuring the further development of the industry and an important factor in ensuring that brand Jamaica stays ahead of the competition.”
