The WorldHost suite of Customer Service programmes were originally developed by People 1st for the London 2012 Olympics, which proved to be an outstanding success.

People 1st who are the Sector Skills Council for Hospitality, Leisure, Travel and Tourism, introduced the WorldHost Suite of Customer Service programmes for the Olympics and it is now considered as the Customer Service standard.
