Conclusion

Examples of these are families with young children, teenagers, student groups, people from other cultures, non-English speaking guests and guests with specific needs. In order that cast can be aware of the needs of all the guests, all cast are trained in politeness, awareness of special needs and strategies to use for different situations. Guest Care involves a wide spectrum of skills that are involved when dealing with guests. These skills reflect the essential skills required in everyday life. We take our appearance / image standards very seriously since through these the cast are able to reflect our high standards. We know that our cast members are maintaining these standards from the feedback we receive from on-going research. Every day, exit surveys are available for guests to complete. The survey itemises all the different areas of Thorpe Park. Through these the marketing department are able to maintain an informed overview of the daily performance of cast and the facilities, which are in place for the convenience of guests. GUEST SERVICES TEAM The Guest Services Team is ultimately responsible for dealing with guest comments that cannot be addressed by other cast members. These comments can vary tremendously in content and in the way in which they can be resolved. All departments keep the Guest Services Team up to date throughout the day of any information that might affect the guests' day out. For example, if a ride is not working, the Guest Services Team will be notified and given all the facts so that guests can be given correct information. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
