Have you ever sat around a table at a restaurant with friends and family, and struggled to get the perfect photo of everyone? If you visit a Hilton hotel in the future, then those struggles are a thing of the past, thanks to the new ‘Waitographer’ scheme. As part of the scheme, staff were trained in smartphone photography in a workshop led by expert photographer Roger Moukarzel. After the training, staff receive a certificate and a badge, so guests will know who to ask to help capture that special moment.
Now guests won’t have to worry about asking someone to take a photo and then ending up with something blurry or too dark. The Waitographer scheme isn’t just a way of upskilling Hilton employees, but helps create memories for guests – as well as high-quality photos that they can share on social media. The campaign started out in the UAE, where there are already 100 Waitographers. It’s already been rolled out to other countries, and the workshop will be available to all Hilton employees around the world. You can find out more about it here: https://bit.ly/3GQEI0l
