In todayâ€™s self-seeking society just about everyone thinks of themselves first, the interest of the customer often takes a distance second at best. That type of attitude is detrimental in todayâ€™s business environment. The question remains, how do you change an otherwise self-seeking individual into someone who puts the interest of others before themselves?
The answer is education! Education of the call center workforce is imperative to develop in the call center environment. This culture consists of those whose thoughts are aimed on a positive action and reactions of their activities and how they affect the customer vs. how a situation would impact them (with a self-centered attitude). The attitude must be whatâ€™s the most convenient and responsive for the â€ścustomerâ€ť and thatâ€™s what should take top billing to meet a customer’s expectations. They must be handled in a professional, friendly and courteous manner. Frankly, itâ€™s what a customer expects from their provider besides, honesty and integrity.
The customer experience is impacted by so many variables, but a caring concerned representative is at the crux of that experience. Quality service comes from an individual willing to do want it takes to provide quality service. So, as they say in show biz, itâ€™s show time! Envision taking center stage in the play called â€śThe Business Environment.â€ť The character takes the stage with a bright smile leaving the concerns of personal matters behind to focus on one primary person, the customer-in this case the audience. A call center agents character roles are different than an actor, but the lines must be effectively executed to ensure a satisfactory and a harmonious conclusion.
