The Institute in a paragraph...
The Institute of Customer Service is the independent professional membership body for customer service. It works across all sectors to improve business performance through service excellence. It is the go-to place for all things relating to the customer experience, working with members, regulators, Government and the media to position the UK as world leaders in service. Twice a year The Institute publishes the UK Customer Satisfaction Index – the nation’s barometer of customer service – and is tackling the abuse of customer-facing workers through its Service with Respect campaign.
What does membership mean for us?
As a member of The Institute, we have committed to continuously improve our service and put our customers at the heart of everything we do.
Its research demonstrates that when customer service is part of the Boardroom’s strategic plan, consistently measured, reported and communicated – service delivery and customer satisfaction improves, boosting trust, loyalty and financial performance.
Membership gives us access to tools, insight and advice to deliver world-class customer service, including:
- Professional development (workshops, training & qualifications)
- Performance benchmarking
- Embedding high service standards
- Exclusive research and insight
- Advice, support and a ‘critical friend’
