Question and answer
Identify examples of when customer service may be limited by organisational goals
There is some truth to this. Customer service representatives at Holiday Inn are limited in the extent to which they can correct mistakes involving guests. [ They can move guests to a different room if there is excessive noise in the room next to the guest's room. In some instances, guests may get a gift certificate for an additional night at another Holiday Inn if they have had a particularly
bad experience. In contrast, customer service representatives at Tokyo's Marriott Inn have the latitude to take up to $500 off a customer's bill to solve complaints. The actions of customer service representatives at both Holiday Inn and Marriott Inn must follow policies and procedures, yet those at Marriott are likely to feel less constrained and more empowered by Marriott's policies and procedures compared to Holiday Inn customer service representatives. The key in terms of management control is matching regulative controls such as policies and procedures with organizational goals such as customer satisfaction. Each of the three types of regulative controls discussed in the next few paragraphs has the potential to align or misalign organizational goals with regulative controls. The challenge for managers is striking the right balance between too much control and too little. ]

Explain how new customer service situations can aid self development and career progression
Weegy: Customer service representatives work for a variety of firms throughout the country and act as a direct point of contact for customers. [ They must ensure that their customer’s are assisted properly and that all their questions and concerns are addressed. Customers can be single consumers or large firms, and the needed services can be quite different depending on the customer. Obviously every representative works with customer directly in order to provide timely responses to questions about the goods and services offered, or to take care of complaints. The vehicle of communication can be by telephone, e-mail, snail mail, fax, the internet, or in person. Some work as specialists are deal with specific issues while others deal with general questions, concerns, and problems. Most customer issues deal with run of the mill questions and requests. For instance, customers might request their bank account balance, or want to look up the status of an order they made. These types of requests are simple and merely need to be looked on the computer. Other inquiries may be more complicated and might require extra research or a detailed explanation by the representative. As always, customer representatives must adhere to company guidelines and policies when resolving issues with the customer. These policies might include asking additional questions to ensure the validity of the complaint, suggesting potential solutions, refunding the customer, exchanging the product, of offering complimentary discounts and coupons. In some situations, representatives must follow up questions and concerns until the customer’s inquiry has been completely resolved. Some customer service representatives aid customers in determining what kinds of goods or services would optimally fulfill their needs. They might even assist customers in buying the good or carrying out transactions. The main objective of customer service reps is not sales, though some may try to persuade customers to buy ... (More)

explain how new customer service situations can aid self development and career progression User: Identify the procedures for accessing formal learning programmes and the procedure for challenging refusal if available
Weegy: Learning and the line In March 2005 the CIPD published a report – Who Learns at Work? Employees’ experience of training and development – based on a survey of 750 employees across sectors. [ The results powerfully demonstrated the critical role of line managers as facilitators and providers of learning. Just under half of respondents said it was their line manager who initiated their most recent training activity, compared with a third who identified the HR/training department. And where this training was evaluated, it was the line manager who led the discussion on the effectiveness of the training in over half the cases. In terms of the type of training provided, off-the-job, c lassroom-based activity was still dominant, but on-the-job and one-to-one training were often mentioned. However, in terms of people’s preferred method of training, learning by doing with guidance from colleagues or the line manager was top of the list, especially for those with few qualifications. The survey report concluded that: The role of the line manager is critical to training and development in organisations. Line managers initiate a high percentage of the training that takes place. They are also responsible for over half of the discussions with employees on the effectiveness of training that takes place. Ensuring that line managers have the skills for and are committed to support learning and development is essential. (p15) The annual CIPD survey of learning and development p rofessionals has repeatedly demonstrated the importance of line managers. ] (More)
