Falling revenue is something that is currently affecting many businesses, including retail organisations, construction firms and professional service suppliers. And when revenue falls, outside investment from private equity firms and venture capitalists becomes even harder to secure, meaning growth opportunities that will help boost income are not possible. Needless to say, for those higher up the management food chain, this should be a must-read if they have so far not jumped on-board the LEAN train.

These teams are built and maintained by focusing all their communications, performance measures and processes on the customer. Once your staff have reviewed your competitors, get them to share their experience with the rest of the team.

If you’re still not sure what will be the most rewarding to your employees, ask them what they would prefer. You can then gain feedback on the scheme through staff surveys and performance reviews.

Actioning customer feedback is a vital part of delivering excellent customer service – and the important word here is ‘actioning’. Giving your customers a platform to share their views, let you know what works well and what doesn’t, and make suggestions, is a great way to gather feedback.

Share this data with representatives in your organisation who are best placed to provide the broadest of insights into why these complaints may be happening.

Customer feedback can also tie in to an Employee Recognition Scheme to give recognition to the individual or team who delivered the exceptional service.
