Civil servants complete SuperHost training coursePOSTED: 06/8/12 11:36 AM
St. Maarten – Staffers of the Department of Social Welfare and staffers of the Department of Labor Affairs were presented with certificates and pins on Thursday for successfully completing the customer service training offered by St. Maarten Super Host N.V. The two departments are the first to have used the company’s services and the company’s director Tamara Leonard hopes more ministries will “join the SuperHost train and bring friendliness and quality service back to the island.”
The training was facilitated by Renaldo Baker and Corrine Isaacs. The duo congratulated the civil servants on completing the program and urged to use the skills they’d acquired.
“I’m glad to see you receive your certificates. I loved the energy and I loved the questions most of all. Now it’s up to you,” Baker said.
“Practice, practice, practice,” Issaacs added.
Minister of Public Health, Social Development and Labor Cornelius de Weever views the training as part of an overall effort to “invest in our people, invest in our civil service and in change.”
“I can only hope that you are now motivated to do a great job and deliver great service. Our purpose as civil servants is to serve. Communication is the key. I can only hope that we do our utmost best. This is a day of change. We can do this together,” the minister said.
Three participants in the course – Vernel Paul, Normaline Richardson and Natasha Richardson – were saluted for getting perfect scores on their final exam. Paul works in the Department of Social Services and the two Richardsons work in the Department of Labour Affairs.
