Who should attend

This workshop has been specifically designed for public services and government agencies, this Oxford Customer Service for the Public Sector training course uses real-world examples to train public employees how to increase customer satisfaction.

This Oxford training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Service Personnel at all levels of federal, state and local government agencies
  • Public Sector Employees

About the course

The benefits of providing excellent customer service are quite clear in the commercial, for profit world, but what is often overlooked is that the very same principles are also just as necessary in the public sector. Citizens have become used to the 24/7/365 'Always on' ethos of the commercial world and are, increasingly, expecting the same levels of service and responsiveness from Government agencies too.

This Oxford Customer Service for the Public Sector training course is designed to give participants the communication skills, negotiation strategies, and public-sector customer service best practices they require to significantly improve customer service while lowering costs and increasing employee satisfaction. Delegates will walk away from this programme with the ability to measure customer satisfaction and apply the design elements necessary to structure their organisation in a customer-centric manner to respond effectively as customer service needs and conditions change.
