Steps to Certification is a complete training method for hotels that are striving to achieve Green Seal™ Certification. The program takes the GS-33 Standard for Lodging Properties and divides it into sections by department:
- Food and Beverage
Each department manager is given an Action Plan with 5-8 assignments that will meet a specific part of the GS-33 Standard. Breaking down the standard in this manner allows for a manageable task list for each member of the Green Team, eliminating the scenario of an individual carrying the entire workload.
By assigning each department representative on your Green Team job-related tasks, you’ll find that not only can the certification be achieved in a reasonable time frame, but personal ownership of the project is enhanced, accountability increases, teamwork is fostered, and the accomplishment becomes a true testament to the contributions of each department.
Certification Steps Include:
Step 1 – Review the GS-33 Standard
Step 2 – Review the Steps to Certification E-Booklets
Step 3 – Write and implement Standard Operating Procedures
Step 4 – Train department staff on new procedures
Step 5 – Submit documentation to Green Seal
