Debt management is stressful: we have set out some essential practical points to consider to help you and your customers navigate the current crisis.
We will, eventually, move past this. And when we do, those businesses that have done the right thing by customers and employees - and been genuine and true to their purpose - will be in the strongest position to rebound.
Organisations need to be consistent in their approach to how they communicate internally so that they can reach customer touch-points across the entire business. This will help ensure colleagues and front-line staff are best placed to continue to deliver services, as well as any changes to services, thereby maintaining a strong and positive relationship with customers.
Now is the time to harness our knowledge, capabilities and innovation, to engage with employees and customers to truly become a service nation that is recognised and admired across the world.
Your membership of The Institute of Customer Service is a valuable resource that can help you deal with current challenges and prepare for the future. We’ve set out some of the practical ways your Institute membership can offer immediate and practical help.
How can you make the right decisions for your business in the face of uncertainty? What will that mean for your staff, customers and company reputation? In this insightful audio interview, Dr Liz Jackson MBE, Marketing Director at BCMS, talks to Jo Causon, CEO of the Institute of Customer Service, about the many challenges business leaders are facing in the current situation.
Organisations across all sectors will have huge sections of their workforce whose services - temporarily at least – they don’t require and can’t sustain. How they handle this dilemma will shape how they’re viewed by employees and customers long into the future.
Head 2 Head: Jo Causon explains to Craig Elvin at Executive Heads why Customer Service is at the beating heart of the UK economy, why Customer Service employees should receive greater recognition and how businesses can deliver excellent customer service during these challenging times.
