The Healthy Living Customer Care Team recently read and responded as a group to an article, Moving Your Call Center’s Customer Service from Good to Excellent. Exercises like this are part of Healthy Living’s commitment to continuous growth, especially in the area of customer service. This also relates to three of our company’s Core Values:
- Get better every day
- Pursue ongoing learning
- Build a positive team
We know that our business does not exist without our customers and members, so it is of utmost importance to keep them happy and satisfied with superior service and unexpectedly positive care. We want our customers to know that we appreciate their business and never take them for granted.
This article explains that there are eight essential customer service skills needed for delivering superior customer service:
- Active listening
- Communication skills
- Diffuse anger
- Team building
- Ability to apologize/recover (when necessary)
We agree with the author that “it is our actions, words, promises, and commitment” that create an exceptional and memorable customer experience, and that is our goal and intent with every customer interaction, every day.
We love to help!
