Customer Service Training: Increasing Customer Satisfaction
Get five or six people together and there is a good likelihood you'll hear a story in which someone dealt with a person who really needed customer service training. Most of us believe that increasing customer satisfaction is a primary goal, yet the way we go about it is sometimes spotty or even missing altogether.
What would you give to truly know what your customers think of your service, your product? Even the best surveys and call monitoring give you only sketchy snapshots of the many customer interactions happening every day. Think about this: Especially in customer service, you pay for the training whether you do it or not! That means if you do not do it (or do it poorly) it’s costing you more than the price of the training in lost sales and unhappy customers sharing their experience with others—typically up to 10 times!
Customer Service Training can make your company stand out in the customer’s mind because of your thoroughness, empathy and satisfying resolutions. Your customer service reps can learn how to see things from the customer perspective. To empathize. To respond with warmth.
The ability to do this is a learned skill, something customer service personnel can master with Customer Service Training that brings out their best, most thoughtful self.
Skilled front-line customer service reps help your business achieve important benefits:
