‘Customer Delight’ is the enticing name given to a new style of rudimentary training being provided by Tanmia Consulting and Training for the staff of Budget Car Rental, Bahrain. Tanmia, a Bahrain-based company, will be providing the training for over 30 drivers and customer service staff, helping them to expand their abilities within the company and develop their own potential.
Tanmia’s training style utilises unusual interactive techniques which will help employees assess how their daily input and attitude can have an effect on customer retention and or, ultimately, the success of the business. At the same time, the sessions will encourage the members of the team to be introspective and set goals and standards for themselves to assist with their own future development.
Mr Jacob Thomas, General Manager of Budget Car Rental has selected this style of training because of its interactive quality, which he feels will work well with his team of employees saying: “Tanmia focuses on delivering a complete range of internationally proven products which are designed to change behaviour towards performance and organization contribution, the results of which are monitored and enhanced as the employee develops. It is our aim to ensure that our best performers can recognise the strong contribution they make to the company’s success, while non-performers are encouraged to identify their own faults and improve upon them.”
Helga Smit, Senior Consultant with Tanmia Consulting & Training is a professionally experienced trainer from South Africa where she has worked extensively with companies who needed to integrate and develop a variety of different skills within the workforce.
She has worked at all levels from management to new recruits and has some unusual methods in store for helping the Budget Car Rental employees learn. She said: “I believe that it is really important for employees to be interactive in a learning situation. It does not suit everyone to learn from books and manuals, so I like to bring physical props to support the items I am teaching, in this way, learning has more impact and is remembered. Scenarios also become more real and employees can see the effect of their work.”
