Any type of work where customer focus is speaking to people on the telephones to either resolve problems or issues, or to sell people stuff can be an extremely demanding position.
You are on the end of a phone, someone at the other end either may not want to be there or isn’t in the best place right now. Can be super tough at the best of times. Do management of such companies respect this, and understand the key needs of their staff? Is staff moral a priority? If so, why not? Are managers or CEO’s aware that staff who are feeling less stressed and more valued likely to do their job better? Is it accepted that those in a more happy workplace and surrounding are going to be more productive. What are the costs to your business?
What does happier team members, improved staff morale and increased productivity lead to in the longer term? – Increased turnover, a bigger overall revenue. And what does a happy and efficient team lead to? – happy customers. This will be entirely emitted through the phone lines. Happy customer equals – repeat customers, sustainability and referrals. Trust me, a customer who has received a level of service that goes above and beyond remembers that level of service long after they have paid for it. And if you are happy with ‘satisfied’ customers, you are only half way there.
Want to improve productivity and increase turnover? Want to make your business stand out from the rest with your greatest commodity, your staff? It is all about investing in your staff today, to reap the amazing rewards tomorrow. One way this can be achieved, and often much quicker than you might think, is by supporting staff by way of a stress management and resilience workshop.
