What is it like to work for Rapport Guest Services

Leadership

The leadership team at Rapport have worked throughout the pandemic to ensure employees have felt supported, updated and engaged. They have endeavoured to give as much information, clarity and certainty as possible to help expedite the curve of change. The team have hosted Zoom calls for the entire Rapport population every week since March with the MD. The purpose of these calls has been to provide business updates, highlight L&D opportunities, fun activities (with prizes), recognition, and films that had been created by their own teams. These meetings, initially, were hosted twice a week, every week, which really helped to create a sense of certainty and care. The meetings will continue post-COVID and have moved to fortnightly, as more employees are now back in the business.

Rapport designed and introduced Return to Work courses to provide front line staff with certainty and confidence. The sessions address safety and resilience in fast changing environments. Some of the topic areas included how to complete risk assessments, refreshers of the business excellence programme, core values and culture. They also covered; social distancing, how to sanitize your workspaces, remarkable service in the new world, managing guest responses. The sessions proved to be engaging and  instigated many questions, ideas and suggestions. It has been a valuable platform to address ideas & questions, creating certainty on H&S protocol and responsibilities.
