Service Excellence virtual dialogue

​The Department of Tourism, in collaboration with Gauteng Tourism Authority (GTA), will host a virtual dialogue on Service Excellence that will bring together sector partners and stakeholders to share information and expertise on the approaches and models utilised to improve service levels in the tourism sector.

Since the development of the Service Excellence Standard (SANS 1197) in 2012, the Department has done extensive work to inculcate a culture of service excellence, and address service delivery and customer centricity values challenges in the tourism sector.

The inculcation of service excellence and the promotion of the standard through capacity building initiatives, learning networks, and importantly consumer feedback continue to play a pivotal part in empowering and guiding tourism products to improve, offer and provide service of the highest standard.
