Developing you to where you want to be and beyond
The Project: Customer Service Excellence
The HR Directorate within our client was undergoing a restructure which would result in a 'one call' service being set up, predominantly to service internal customers. A training provider was being sought with the relevant skills and experience to further develop those in the service centre in line with their new roles and responsibilities.
Our brief was also to explore what 'customer service excellence' looked and felt like with the team to create a shared view and understanding of this that would be taken further.
The CRG Training and Consultancy Solution:
We met with our client and discussed a number of areas on which we could focus. The following formed the focus of a one day bespoke workshop:
Dealing with telephone calls and emails effectively
Building a customer charter
Managing customer expectations
Dealing with conflict and difficult situations
Pre-empting and taking ownership of queries
Ending transactions clearly with a sense of where responsibility for actions lie
Creating ideas for improving customer service
We used our CRG Customer Service model as the foundation for the course and explored how attitude and behaviour impact on the customer experience alongside tools and techniques such as using positive language and managing customer expectations. We then gave the delegates the opportunity to work on improvements to their own or standard emails and letters which they then took back to the workplace.
