Art of Service Recovery

  • Course Description
  • Occasionally, service challenges can happen even at the most customer-centric organisations and the cost of service failure can be immense. Apart from the instant cost of rectifying the issue, even more symbolic can be the future eroding of revenues and profits emerging from a loss of customers and the adverse impact on the organisation’s reputation.

    Hence, understanding effective ways to respond to service challenges is not just about addressing the issues and putting things right immediately. It is also converting customers into advocates of the organisation.
