Onsite Instructor Led, "Telephone Etiquette to Create the Right Impressions" Training Program

Fact: 88% of the Customers You Lose Left Because of Perceived Employee Indifference or Rudeness

When you have only one employee to train, this program is also offered via webinars!

One of the most common ways our customers interface with employees is through the telephone.  Therefore, having an understanding of telephone etiquette will make a giant difference to your customers and your profits.  Your reputation for service depends on how well your staff handles incoming and outgoing calls.  86 percent of the message your customers receive on the telephone is through the tonality of the voice they hear.  Only 14 percent of the message they hear are the words used.  Our “Business Image on The Telephone” training helps your employees to develop and master the techniques that will enhance your company’s image.

Telephone etiquette is an effective public relations tool for creating a positive telephone experience for your customers.  This training includes dynamic trainee/trainer interactions and discussions, written and oral exercises, visual aids, and a proprietary workbook for each participant to take back to the workplace.
