Managing Service Complaints in Community Housing - Online Workshop - 15 April 2021

Professional Development Workshops

Research demonstrates that reputation is built and lost from the most recent customer experience. The way you handle a complaint can turn a negative experience into a positive one.

If a customer feels strongly enough to make a complaint, the feedback you receive is worth its weight in gold. It is in the moment, it’s current and it’s real. A complaint is a gift, a golden nugget of opportunity.

This session considers the skills required to respond to complaints successfully, prevent escalations, improve customer care, customer satisfaction, and complaint resolution.

The course will cover:

  • Receiving, understanding, identifying, recording, and acknowledging complaints

  • Excellence in customer service during the complaints process

  • Responding to complaints

  • Using complaints as a tool for continuous improvement

  • Managing difficult and vexatious complainants

Delivery format

The workshop takes a blended learning approach which provides fantastic added value:

  • A 3-hour fully interactive online Zoom session — join from any laptop, PC or device

  • Post-workshop self-paced self study and downloadable materials to reinforce learning

Target audience

The workshop is suitable for those working all levels in community housing organisations including:

  • Frontline property managers

  • Team Leaders

  • Managers and those people involved in developing strategies, policies and processes for dealing with service complaints
