Oamaru i-SITE wins national award

Oamaru i-SITE wins national award

Oamaru’s i-SITE Visitor Information Centre was awarded ServiceIQ’s 2014 Staff Professional Development Award at the i-SITE Conference in Dunedin yesterday.

The Award recognises Oamaru i-SITE’s commitment to investing in customer service training. The Oamaru office has the distinction of putting more staff through ServiceIQ training than any other New Zealand iSite, with 12 staff trained in the past three years. As part of its prize, Oamaru i-SITE Visitor Information Centre earns $800 of ServiceIQ management training.

“With its historic precinct, penguin watching, Steam Punk events, and Highway 1 location, Oamaru is a popular tourist destination,” says ServiceIQ Chief Executive Dean Minchington.

“New Zealanders by nature are both hosts and travellers, so it’s natural for us to welcome guests into our communities. I-SITEs that use ServiceIQ’s nationally-recognised qualifications are supporting both their staff and their district’s tourism businesses.”

ServiceIQ is the industry training organisation (ITO) for the aviation, hospitality, retail, travel, tourism, museums and wholesale sectors.

We’re all about empowering and motivating people to provide great service. This helps businesses remain competitive and New Zealand to be internationally recognised as a great place to live or visit. It also gives people working in our industries valuable skills and knowledge along with nationally recognised qualifications.
