Good customer service is often difficult for an organization to maintain. Many workplaces forget to address that customer service isn’t only the employee’s responsibility but the supervisor’s as well.

The course, “Customer Service: So Help Me, Employee Edition,” also uses depictions of customer situations commonly witnessed on the job. The course offers advice on navigating through situations such as; dealing with policies, talking to customers over the phone, and handling an irate customer.
The most important aspect of customer service is to focus on the customer, listen, and make suggestions to guide both parties to be happy with the resolution. Empowering people can unleash the creative energy and enthusiasm for the job – which will influence how the customer is treated.
