Internal Customer Service

Giving Good Service to the Internal Customer

One day training course           

Overview

Whether you work in a support or a front-line service you are connected up with the rest of the organisation and possibly other agencies.  Very few people work as an’ island’ and on an average day you are likely to provide or need a service many times from your internal colleagues.

Sometimes these relationships don’t work well and it is easy to forget that the standard of service to the external customer depends on our efficient collaboration. This course examines the internal customer service chain, and how we can make it work smoothly and positively.
