The Importance of Employee Engagement in Improving Customer Service Standards

As a company your customer service standards are a central and important part of the overall message. Raising standards continuously is difficult but one way that is often overlooked is within the company itself and the communication routes between staff at the coalface and managers, directors and owners. A chain of open and honest communication and employee engagement can make a real difference to raising standards for the customer.


As a company your customer service standards are a central and important part of the overall message. Raising standards continuously is difficult but one way that is often overlooked is within the company itself and the communication routes between frontline staff and managers, directors and owners. A chain of open and honest communication and employee engagement can make a real difference to raising standards for the customer.

Inclusion – Everyone feels better when they are included. Give your staff a safe and secure channel where they can be honest and expect their feedback to be heard and acted upon and you’ll see an increase in team morale.

Ask the Right Questions – When putting together a staff survey, or building channels of communication only ask the important questions that you know you can act upon and make decisive action based upon the answers. There is nothing worse for staff morale than asking an opinion on something that will never be changed.

Have a Clear Vision – From the CEO down to the staff dealing with customers face-to-face, having a clear company ideal that threads through all aspects of the organisation and service will increase the chances of success. If everyone understands employee engagement, it will work.
