Appropriate and Effective Goal Setting Strategies for the Customer Service Representative, by Lorman

Appropriate and Effective Goal Setting Strategies for the Customer Service Representative is brought to you by Lorman

Understand the proper ways to set CSR goals that will motivate and ultimately give your clients a better experience.

The pressure of responding to client calls may sometimes create an unmanageable process that instead of drawing clients closer to your company, actually drives clients away. Therefore, setting CSR goals that are reasonable and providing training to new customer service representatives is critical. If the goal setting metrics are unreasonable, the CSR will not try to attain them. This topic helps customer service to understand and communicate the importance of their role to staff, then use their top and second tier performers’ results to guide the goal setting in the future. This process leads to happier CSRs. For customer service representatives, it provides a structure to create their own goals to present to their managers for the coming months. This creates a perception of an individual who has the ability to lead. More importantly, it leads to happier clients.
