One Core Business Innovations ( Cebu City, Philippines) , in response to multiple requests from their clients finally rolls out a specialized program for Human Resource practitioners.

The NEED for a Customized Customer Service Training

It was a pleasant surprise when One Core Business Innovations (Cebu City, Philippines) was chosen to run a series of customer service trainings for some key government and quasi government agencies. While private organizations maintain trainings to equip their workforce with the skills to better serve their clients, you don’t often hear such types of programs on the government side. So when the opportunity came; the One Core Business Innovations (Cebu City, Philippines) team took on the project with both excitement and anticipation.

One Core Business Innovations (Cebu City, Philippines ) dedicate pre-training work to ensure that the customer service workshop is relevant and meaningful for the targeted participants. Canned trainings are mostly ineffective and learners are better off reading articles and white paper case studies on the topic! Different pre-training activities are carried out with the client and the preparation also gives an opportunity for the One Core Business Innovations ( Cebu City, Philippines ) team to have a better understanding of the organizational culture, learner profile as well as the internal and external customers they all deal with.

At least 80% of the participants have not attended a customer service training for the past three years and the rest have not attended one at all! However, the One Core Business Innovations (Cebu City, Philippines) took the situation as an opportunity to make the group appreciate the need for excellent customer service skills in the government service.

The attendees came from different departments, multiple functions, rank and length of stay in the government. But regardless of their employment profile, they took the customer training seriously with  many “aha moments”, candid sharing of challenges with their multitude of customers (especially the irate ones!) and the never-ending stereotyping of government workers as being synonymous with sloppy service.

The discussions and sharing during the 2-day Customer Service Training also became a chance for One Core Business Innovations (Cebu City, Philippines) to introduce global customer service best practices for the group to hopefully consider gradually integrating into their own organizations or departments.

One of the clinchers of the customer service training was when the One Core Business Innovations (Cebu City, Philippines) training team urged the participants to realize that each person inside the training room is a taxpayer; and every taxpayer in this country deserves a decent amount of customer service from the government.

After all, excellent customer service is not just expected from every government employee but it is ultimately a responsibility. Now, if the message during the training was heard and applied back at work, the worry about stereotyping government employees to not having superior customer service skills might just be a thing of the past.

If you want a customized customer service training for your organization, you may email your request to:
