Previously, Antoinette Kayitesi (among awarded) was a Security Officer at Access Bank but was later promoted to a receptionist after considering her dedication to the promotion of customer care values.
The Director of Service department in RDB, Emmanuel Nsabimana said that Rwandans have started to appreciate the importance of providing good services, though much still needs to be done.
"As you know we are yet to reach 100% in customer satisfaction. We still have some examples where there are bad services. We are still sensitizing. People should change their mindsets –employees and managers, I believe that if managers take this into account, good services will become a Rwandan culture," he said.
