Quality Customer Service

GOAL: External customer satisfaction has a direct correlation with internal customer satisfaction. This survey is designed to study the efficiency of departments as suppliers of services to other departments. It not only holds departments accountable for their level of service but more importantly gives them specific feedback for improvement. Add onto this some incentives and you have teams vying to improve their internal customer service levels – a very powerful tool to improve organizational efficiency.

External Customer Review:

Organizations in their day to day business often forget to focus on the needs of the customers. It becomes easier to assume that they already know their customers needs and are doing the best job to keep their customers happy. Frequently organizations try to gather information through customer complaints. However, research shows that only one out of five angry customers take the trouble to complain. The rest just stop doing business or complain about you to people outside the organization.
We train teams to select the service dimensions which are critical to the success of their business and to actively elicit feedback from current customers, potential customers and lost customers. Using this information they then select improvement projects and are able to improve customer retention and satisfaction in quantifiable terms.

 

Human Resource Development

Assessment Centers:

GOAL: Enlightened employers go to great lengths to match people and jobs. We spend between a quarter and a third of our time at work, so it is very much in our own interest to spend this time in a job to which we are well suited, gives us satisfaction and enables us to make a real contribution to the success of the organization. Using a combination of different activities our team of qualified psychologists and professionals help clients identify their team’s key competencies, strengths and areas of development. We also rank the participants thus identifying the top performers.

Psychometric & Ability Testing:

GOAL: No organization can succeed only on the basis of their products and services. Performance excellence is critical to their success. The objective of our selection process is to match the individual’s abilities and personality to the right jobs. Competencies are objectively assessed to identify an individual’s potential to perform a job.
At Insolito the use of psychometric testing helps you to reduce staff turn over, improve performance and the creation of a motivated and capable workforce.

Talent Management:

GOAL: In today’s global economy, there are no boundaries for talent. The hunt is on…. The biggest challenge for small and large organizations alike is to retain their talent and keep them motivated. We are happy to work with you to put in systems which ensure that all high achievers have a clearly marked path for growth whether it is through promotions or other forms of career enhancement.

Performance Development Process:

GOAL: To work with clients to develop effective Appraisal Instruments that set challenging targets and measure relevant competencies. In the second phase we run workshops to explain the system, the criteria used as well as coaching and counseling skills. The objective is to make coaching and feedback a way of life in the organization, not just a one off activity.

Leadership Development through the 360 Degree Appraisal System:

GOAL: 360 degree feedback is a method and tool that provides each employee with performance feedback from his or her supervisor, peers/ co-workers, reporting team members, customers as well as a self evaluation. If implemented professionally, it enables staff to serve internal and external customers better and develop their own professional abilities.The success of this system depends on building a coaching culture where people are receptive to feedback and use the opportunity to grow as leaders. Experience has shown that using external consultants for this purpose makes the initiative less threatening and people are more open to giving and receiving feedback from a third party. It takes away the threat of personal biases and fear of lack of confidentiality.We provide the instruments for evaluation, conduct and collate the evaluations, as well as provide on going coaching at an individual level to help employees improve their performance.

Performance Assessment and Team Building

GOAL: To assess in measurable terms, issues faced by the teams. Based on this, training interventions are customized. Consultatively a decision is made on whether team building or team bonding is required. The former focuses more on the tools to work successfully together as a team while the Team Bonding session is usually an Outward Bound Program. The participants are taken to a location away from the city forcing them out of their comfort zone. They try new experiences as a team and learn more about each other as individuals.

The idea is to build a community and as in communities each person learns to share the burden and work together as a family would – looking out for each other. Much of this is based on M. Scott Peck’s work. Tangible commitments are made and follow up sessions scheduled to track improvements or unresolved issues.
