Why Study Customer Service?

Quality customer service has become a primary performance driver across all sectors and business areas worldwide.  Increasingly, it is the quality of the customer experience that single-handedly determines whether a business will strive or struggle to survive.  More important than quality, value for money or even product availability, consumers on a global basis are prioritising customer support over all other facets of the experience.  This has prompted employers and decision-makers to rethink their approach to customer care, allowing only the most talented and capable candidates to represent their businesses. From casual floor staff to team leaders to senior customer support personnel, expectations among employers when screening candidates have never been higher.
