We partnered with the Summit who willingly adapted their training content from the hotel experience to our health club environment. Their approach to training together with their expertise in the hospitality industry helped develop staff in both our new and existing Collection clubs to deliver world class levels of customer service.
The partnership provides a perfect platform for the upskilling and development of students for the exciting world of Gaming. Sun International is very excited about the partnership and foresees the education extending to the support areas of our business.
We started with a pilot project in Gauteng and due to the success of this project we decided to roll out further in Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Free State and KwaZulu Natal for both Checkers and Shoprite in the Free State as well. We are confident that the training will uplift food hygiene in the kitchens, correct knife skills and reduce wastage. One of the chicken dishes used on training was implemented in a store and was sold out in one day. We are happy that Summit identified training that matches the specific needs of our staff and business goals and changed the Assistant Chef programme to suit our business requirements.
uShaka Marine World is very much dependant on ensuring guest excellent customer service, their visit to the park is memorable and increasing return visits to the Park. The Guest First training provided by Summit, has been an important part of helping us achieve this, as it highlighted the key aspects of the quality of the guest’s experience, giving practical and relevant tips and encouraging a real sense of pride in what we have offered in uShaka Marine World.
They (uShaka staff) all felt that the training acted as a beneficial reminder as to what we are essentially here to do as a job, and it has translated into improved service and customer satisfaction.
The Oyster Box (Red Carnation Hotels), embarked on the AHLEI / Summit journey 3 years ago. In that time a large number of our top performing staff have successfully completed the CHA, CHT, CHS, CHDT and more recently the GSG professional training and certification programmes.
We have seen very clear results through investing in our staff, such as increased staff morale, increased satisfied guests, and the achievement of many service awards by The Oyster Box. Summit have played a crucial role in supporting this journey. A large part of the success of these programmes is a result of their dedicated hospitality professionals who strive to better themselves and believe in the education and upliftment of staff within the hospitality industry. We believe IHS is the leading hospitality education institution in SA and we will continue to work with them in the future.
During the years of services received by Summit, we experienced a high service delivery level, in regards to the planning, implementing and closing of the projects. The facilitators are proactive, especially when learners require additional support on their programmes.
I am very excited to give my feedback with regards to the Guest Service Gold training that Summit offered. This training was very beneficial for myself and my colleagues.
It went a long way in helping us understand how to deal efficiently with the guest and how to effectively manage excellent customer service in the hospitality industry. Although we tend to take these principles for granted, we sometimes neglect to apply the proven techniques while still dealing with guests' complaints.
After the course I had a renewed sense of purpose and confidence than ever before. Our trainer was particularly good and very passionate about the programme. I felt that he was communicating his knowledge with zest and eloquence. Once again thank you to the Taj for organizing such a fantastic course. I am looking forward to further training in order to improve my knowledge
The team needs to be commended for the outstanding service we received this past year. They run one of my client's learnerships with great success and their quality training programmes and expert trainers assists us to develop sustainable programs for our client. Summit are flexible, reliable and passionate; all while putting service at the forefront of what they do.
The Summit team is great and a pleasure to work with! I believe that we will do amazing things to help young people achieve their potential. During COVID-19 we have seen a very innovative culture from Summit with a strong focus on managing risks whilst adapting the program to meet the needs of Zimele and more importantly of the beneficiaries on our program. It’s been a great experience working with the Summit team whom are highly accountable, professional and impactful!
It is extremely unsettling to see the number of South Africa’s youth that are unemployed. Now more than ever, it is evident that more focus needs to be placed on facilitating the youth in entering the job market without a formal tertiary qualification, allowing them the opportunity to contribute positively to the country’s economy.
Too many businesses consider skills development an outlet for excess budget, where it should rather be a priority expense. That being said, not every company will have a big budget to spend on regular staff training.
When your aim is to achieve excellence within your business, the goal of a positive learning experience is to ensure employees are engaged and enjoying the process of developing their skills. Without this, there is no personal motivation from staff and the results you see will be underwhelming.
As South Africa's leading corporate training and education provider, Summit offers a combination of certifications and training programmes that equip employees with the skills and knowledge required to be successful professionals.
