Our Quality Tourism commitments:
Located in the heart of the Oisans, on the road to the great passes and belonging to the prestigious Alpe d’Huez ski/mountain bike domain, Vaujany is on a strategic axis in terms of tourism development.
Our Tourist Office must be up to the challenge of tourism, and for several years now we have chosen to place quality at the heart of our concerns and within our tourism strategy in order to allow for a constant progression in the quality of our destination.
Aware of the demands of our visitors as to the quality of the services offered, concerned about the satisfaction of our partners but also about the concerns of our elected representatives, the Tourist Office team has set 4 priority quality objectives and clearly displays its quality commitments.
- Quality human relations
Satisfying a customer, a partner or a colleague means above all listening to them, understanding them in order to better advise them or help them in their search
- Efficient and pleasant working conditions
By improving the organisation and internal communication of our services (in particular team meetings), we enable each member of our team to fulfil his or her potential and to show his or her dynamism within a united team

By encouraging our staff to follow various training courses, to participate in seminars, and to take part in local and foreign tours in order to develop their knowledge of the services on offer, we offer each member of the team the opportunity to demonstrate their professionalism and dynamism
