Time: 9:00am to 5:00pm
Venue: The Armada Petaling Jaya Hotel (Near Asia Jaya LRT Station)

Managing Complaints. It seems everyone is talking about customers. Some of the reasons as to why poor service is still a major concern of most organizations are as follows:

Few people have been trained to pay attention to the second half of today’s jobs - the people part. They have invested their time and energies in the technical aspects. They have not been trained to handle the complications of making sure their work is valuable to others.

People have not been conditioned or encouraged to treat people inside of their own organization as customers. Without the support and cooperation of “internal” customers (colleagues, employees, bosses, and other departments) it is difficult to satisfy those we commonly view as our “real” customers (those who use our services). Satisfying “internal” customers provides a vital link in the chain that leads to satisfying customers outside of the organization.

People often don’t realize that working hard is not the same as satisfying customers. As a result, people often work hard and are frustrated because customers (internal or external) remain unsatisfied.

As such the main aim of this workshop is concentrating on how to satisfy the needs and wants of customers effectively.

• Develop ways to manage complaints effectively
