This specialized course tackles the issue of customer complaints by focusing on its two components: the behavioral aspect related to the individual employee who deals face to face with the complainant and the system's or procedural aspect related to how the organization should process a complaint, every step of the way, from the moment it is raised to its conclusion. In addition the course also covers the necessary preparations an organization must go through in terms of culture development and openness before it can hope to benefit from complaints, recover complaining customers, improve internal processes and achieve new heights in customer satisfaction.

Course Methodology

In addition to short presentations by the consultant and the resulting written or oral questions that are debated by the group, this course relies on case studies, exercises and the design of procedures and forms by work teams as well as role plays.
