Frontline employees are the core of your customer service. They represent your product, services, and brand to the customers and ultimately influence customers’ satisfaction.
Our programme aims to sensitize employees on the value of customer service in day to day interactions with customers and set the tone for customer-centricity. This helps employees to have a basic understanding of the importance of customer service in their roles of service.
Working with difficult customers, telephone skills, the customer value proposition and a customer-driven culture are some of the aspects covered during this training programme. It is important that all frontline staff within the organization take this programme since in a very real sense it is the frontline who produces the bottom line/profits.
