Quality Assurance

Corporate Keys is committed to providing consistent and high-quality services and products across all brands and locations. The following initiatives assure quality:


Applicants are matched against position description, personality profile, and corporate fit. After screening, applicants undergo behavioral style interviewing, DISC analysis, in some instances, a written examination, and thorough reference checking. Successful applicants undergo a national police check before commencement. Competitive salaries commensurate with experience and generous benefits ensure that quality staff are attracted and retained.


All employees and relevant contract staff undergo comprehensive induction training upon commencement. Employees in leadership positions must undertake external training such as Certificate IV in Frontline Management. All employees undergo job-specific training and are monitored for satisfactory achievement before being authorized to work alone with guests or clients. Corporate Keys supports and promotes key staff undergoing external training appropriate to their current role and career path. Corporate Keys supports, encourages, and expects staff to attend seminars, workshops, and industry and technology updates to keep abreast of developments in our industry.

Standard Operating Procedures

All activities, processes, procedures, and policies are documented in our in-house corporate intranet. Staff members follow check sheets for all quality activities, requiring counter-checking and sign-off.

Apartment Quality

Apartments are selected against documented quality criteria, including those in our published 'Guide for Owners'. Apartments are classified by our in-house rating system as Premium Economy, Business Class, and First Class, with even the most economical class, Premium Economy, being higher quality than general residential stock. New apartments undergo a thorough 'Setup' before the first guest checks in. Between guests, all apartments have a comprehensive 'Exit Clean' by our housekeeping team and then are 'Reset' and signed off by our trained operations personnel. A complete condition report and inventory is produced and quality is regularly inspected by the Manager of Operations. We operate a 24-hour maintenance hotline for emergencies and measure Operations personnel against maintenance KPIs for response time and problem resolution.

Guest Satisfaction and Feedback

All guests are invited to complete an exit survey at the end of their stay. The Managing Director, along with the Management team, reviews all exit surveys. Any specific corrective actions are implemented, trends are noted, and staff members nominated for particular praise are acknowledged and published to all staff.
