Through insight, shared experience and case studies this training course will better equip customer-facing teams to deal with customers’ diverse needs.

A fundamental course for driving inclusive customer service, this course explores the drivers and indicators of vulnerability, along with appropriate responses and recording of disclosures. It is especially beneficial for frontline employees in Financial Services, Healthcare and Social Care, Utilities, Telecommunications and Retail.

Every organisation has customers who are facing situations that make them vulnerable. How we interact with those customers can either improve or hinder their ability to access the products, services and support they need. During this course we explore ways to make a positive difference.

Delegates will have the opportunity to reflect, share good practices and participate in course activities and case study discussions.
