Top 5 Reasons to Hire Reception Staff in Qatar

In the 21st century, the exchange of information at entry points of business is a key factor that all businesses must consider. Regardless of the industry and sector, your business operates in, there will always be a bulk of information exchange involved. Hence, it is beneficial to have a gatekeeper who can manage this process of information exchange between your company and clients. In this sense, a gatekeeper is not a literal gatekeeper but a team role involved in collecting and disseminating information. 


To do this, all you have to do is hire a receptionist for your business. Here are some of the top 5 reasons to hire a receptionist as a gatekeeper for your hospitality service or any other business for that matter.

  • Make a Good First Impression

A receptionist is a qualified professional who is well-groomed and serves as the face of your organization. Especially for a hospitality service in Qatar, it is necessary to have a receptionist that can personify your brand messaging. He/she acts on the basis of your company’s core values. Thereby leaving a lasting impression on your customers. This also helps encourage satisfied customers/guests to return to your establishment more often.

  • Promote Resourcefulness

A talented receptionist can often be quite resourceful. Such a professional is highly capable of multitasking. They can receive phone calls, resolve guest complaints, make reservations, generate travel itineraries for guests, and so much more. One unique benefit of hiring a receptionist is that they are go-getters and will not stop until the job is completed. If you wish for your hospitality service to be truly resourceful, then you should consider hiring a receptionist. 

  • Encourage Versatility

Most experienced receptionists are highly versatile. They are capable of adapting to a variety of situations and performing to the best of their abilities. Moreover, the receptionist knows everyone in the office. As a result, they are efficient office administrators that facilitate communication between departments. In some cases, a receptionist can also help resolve disputes between departments in your office. This only goes to show the versatile nature of the job, confirming your need for such personnel at your workplace.

  • Get Organized Easily

One of the most defining traits of a receptionist is their organizational skills. An office receptionist is not only responsible for greeting and orienting visitors and clients but also for managing the schedules of high-ranking employees. Moreover, you can use a receptionist to schedule team meetings. Apart from these, if you hire a receptionist at your office, you will notice a significant improvement in daily productivity solely due to their advanced organizational skills.

  • Improve Organizational Communication

As mentioned earlier, a receptionist can often facilitate or even mediate communication between different departments. As gatekeepers, receptionists know everyone in the office and take special care to send the right information to the right place, at the right time. This means there are fewer chances of interdepartmental miscommunication when you have an efficient receptionist. In fact, a receptionist often plays a pivotal role when new recruits are inducted into the organization.


Final Thoughts

While receptionists can be a valuable asset to your business, they are often difficult to find talented ones. Qatar Engineering House has a vast professional network of receptionists that you can tap into. Moreover, these candidates are specially trained for specific industries. Hence, you will have to choose the candidate who is best aligned with the industry your company operates in. Hence, when hiring a receptionist, Qatar Engineering House can be a viable option.


Waste Disposal and Recycling – A Waste Management Guide

Waste Management
Waste Management in Qatar

Considering the creeping effects of global warming, it has now become the number one priority of companies to consider their efforts towards people, the planet, and profit. To do so, one of the most basic requirements is for companies to manage their waste production. In the realm of waste management, waste disposal and recycling take the front row.


Waste Management in Qatar

When it comes to waste management, the Government of Qatar has planned stern steps towards it. Given the current FIFA World Cup 2022 being hosted in Qatar, the country is set to witness one of its largest tourist footfalls yet. With tourists, there also comes increased production of waste. As of now, Qatar produces about 2.5 million tons of waste annually, which equals about 2.5 kg of waste per person per year. If this is not mitigated, then it can cause serious environmental concerns in Qatar.


Commercial Waste Disposal

In light of these circumstances, companies in Qatar have taken up the initiative of responsible waste disposal at their premises. Several companies are now deploying dumpster rental services, waste collection, waste transportation, waste processing, and waste disposal services in Qatar. If you wish for your business in Qatar to participate in this sustainability endeavour, you too should responsibly dispose of all commercial waste.


Disposing Waste Responsibly in Qatar

Qatar has three types of waste disposal landfills. These are – 

  • Bulky and Domestic Waste

The most efficient bulky and domestic waste disposal site in Qatar is the Umm Al-Afai. These are organic wastes generated either from households or food and beverage establishments in Qatar. They are easily biodegradable and do not cause much land pollution. Moreover, such bulky domestic waste usually does not need to be processed. Often simple composting can reduce such waste into an easily biodegradable format.

  • Construction and Demolition Waste

Rawda Rashed is the most appropriate disposal site for this type of waste. This type of waste is less biodegradable and sometimes needs to be processed in order to avoid excessive land pollution. One of the best ways to dispose of such debris and rubble is recycling. Most of this waste can be repurposed into concrete. Moreover, metallic waste from construction sites can also be melted and recycled into new products. Hence, there is a need for the segregation of this type of waste before dumping it at a landfill.

  • Sewage Waste

The best site for sewage waste disposal is Al-Krana in Qatar. Moreover, the collection and waste removal of sewage usually leave a large carbon footprint. Despite effective waste management, the only way to dispose of sewage waste is through treatment and processing. Since it takes up significant energy to do so, it is best if recycling is done and clean water is extracted from this sewage for use in commercial water pipelines. 


Waste Management – Recycling in Qatar

Besides waste removal and waste management, businesses in Qatar should also consider recycling as a viable option. This is because of the numerous business case benefits of recycling.


  • It saves money.
  • It helps the community.
  • It can be a source of revenue.
  • It protects the environment.
  • It increases employee and customer satisfaction.


Important Takeaway

Given all these options for waste removal, waste management, and recycling in Qatar, your business can truly be a sustainable one. To do this, you can hire professional waste management firms like Qatar Engineering House who will take care of your waste management problems for you. This means you can rest easy knowing that both your business and the environment are safe.
