10 Reasons Why Tourism Operators Should Train Team Members During Covid-19
Tourism and the travel industry is clearly one of the worst-hit sectors by Covid-19 and the ban on international flights has all but shut down this segment entirely. It’s hard to imagine people travelling abroad in the forthcoming months due to the present uncertain environment. These circumstances are impacting investments by companies in their overall infrastructure and also in their Human Capital.
Despite the challenges we face, staying busy and productive will not only help operators long term but will also give everyone a sense of purpose. Having something to do (besides watch media reports of COVID-19 wreaking havoc around the world) is sure to help everyone’s mental health and wellbeing and also increase a sense of readiness for the recovery period.
In light of the above, the Malta Tourism Authority has launched a fully sponsored e-learning programme for all employees engaged in the tourism and hospitality industries. This initiative, complemented by the following 10 reasons, is indisputably a golden opportunity. Employers within these industries are encouraged to motivate their team members to embark on up to three short courses or one accredited course, being offered for free.
