Make a People-First Culture a Reality in Your Organization

January 4, 2023  12:00 – 1:00 PM
HR Answers Seminars
Zoom – Virtual Event

People keep encouraging companies to be “people-first” in their approach, but we’re not really sure how to make it come to life. Also, we’re not sure how to get Sr. Leadership to buy in to this forward-thinking approach to people.

You’ll learn the following:

  • Understand how to be a valued, and sought after, resource as an HR practitioner, instead of only providing support when needed.
  • Learn how to effectively develop people individually from the Executive level down through the organization.
  • Work from a people-first and strengths-based position in the HR role and teach managers to do the same.
  • Effectively assess and place people in roles where they can perform and excel personally and for the organization.

Essential Skills: Customer Service

January 18, 2023  8:30 – 11:30 AM
HR Answers Seminars
Virtual Event

Excellent customer experiences start with strong employee experiences. Customer experience challenges begin much further upstream than organizations realize. Sixty-four percent of US workers say that the employee experience impacts their ability to serve customers. Yet, less than half (38%) say that their organization places a great deal of importance on employee experience/satisfaction, according to a recent 2021 survey by Eagle Hill Consulting.

This program will highlight how excellent service is the result of your employee experience and understanding your customer expectations and how to put the right service standards in place to exceed on both ends.

This session will cover:

  • What excellent customer services really is; not just vocabulary
  • Establishing a customer focus
  • How to determine your customers’ needs and expectations
  • How to reinforce excellent customer service from each employee
  • Evaluating customer service

Stories, dynamic activities, role play, and discussions will be shared and take place so you can learn about some ways that other businesses are providing a great experience for their customers.
