DE Shoes in Stonehaven has become the latest UK business to be recognised nationally for its commitment to customer service.
The Stonehaven shoe shop has recently been awarded WorldHost Recognised Business status.
WorldHost is a world-class customer service training programme that has been used to train around 150,000 people in the UK, including thousands of staff and volunteers for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
WorldHost Recognised Business status is awarded to businesses that have trained at least 50% of their front line staff using a WorldHost training programme and signed a commitment to delivering excellent customer service.
Alison Davidson, Store Manager at DE Shoes, said: “We are passionate about service standards and are incredibly proud to have achieved WorldHost Recognised Business status.
“Not only does this generate a positive buzz about the service we offer, but it helps to promote Stonehaven as a friendly and welcoming tourist destination. ”
The WorldHost programme is being rolled out across the UK by skills and workforce development charity, People 1st, to help businesses gain a competitive edge, and position the nation as a world-class tourist destination.
DE Shoes Stonehaven has been under new ownership since August 2013.
