These changes can effect staff and their morale. Unit 4 will teach you how to effectively manage change with as little disruption as possible to personnel.

Unit 5: Understand equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace

All businesses require a group of people to work together harmoniously in order to be successful. This means that a collection of individuals, all with different backgrounds, ages and beliefs, must be able to work in a way that highlights their strengths. In order for this to work each person in the business environment must have a strong understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion and how to respect others that they work with. In this unit we will look at equality, diversity and inclusion in depth and discuss the benefits of having a diversified workforce.

Unit 6: Understand how to resolve customers’ problems or complaints

Any business with a customer base will encounter complaints and problems. To avoid serious issues, businesses must be able to monitor and resolve issues as and when they arise. There are various techniques and methods to monitor issues and whether they are recurring. If a problem and/or complaint seems to reoccur often procedures must be put in place to resolve them.

Unit 7: Understand how to monitor customer service interactions and feedback

Customer feedback is very important. It is crucial that we collect customer’s opinions and reactions. When customer feedback is gathered we can analyse and scrutinize the information to work out any problem areas. Most customer feedback is based on their interactions with staff. Therefore, it is vital that we monitor customer service interactions. This could be anything from over the phone sales to policies and procedures that are in place.
