Art of Service Recovery

  • Course Description
  • Occasionally, service lapses 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, effective service recovery is not just about addressing the issues and putting things right immediately. It is also about letting customers know how much we care for them and appreciate their support and loyalty.
