Tui bosses go back to the floor

Tui bosses go back to the floor

Senior figures from Tui Travel have spent some time working alongside people in high street travel jobs as part of the firm's Back to the Floor day.

Board members got to work at the retail end of the travel industry last Saturday, visiting stores up and down the country for the annual event.

Following the Back to the Floor day, Tui bosses have prioritised boosting the firm's training and fam trip scheme.

Representatives from Royal Caribbean, Holiday Extras and Superbreak also took part in the event.

Tui distribution director Nick Longman and David Burling, managing director of Tui UK, both took part in the scheme, visiting Brighton and Uxbridge respectively.

Mr Longman said: "The day showed me that it's vital for our staff to have a sound knowledge of differentiated product, and ideally to have visited the destinations. I would like to revisit our educational programme to see if it can be improved."

Mr Burling said: "I would like to make more training tools available so our advisers know hotels and destinations inside out and this is something we will look to address."
