Day 1

Redefining Customer Service

Don`t just ask the frontline staff to do customer service; what does it mean in terms of beliefs and behaviour.

The company or department must define what "brand" of customer service they want to be known for and what it should look like, what are the key beliefs and behaviours. Otherwise the front line staff defines in their own minds what the service level should be and that can lead to mediocre or patchy service.

Providing an organisational Framework

Ensuring the team understands what the organisation provides and how it is delivered from start to finish. This may involve cross training your employees or inviting someone from another department to speak with them. (do the staff actually know what happens when a query or service call is processed?)

Setting service goals

1. Where are the service gaps?
2. How are they measured?
3. How can they be resolved?
