Studies by The Business Research Lab reveal that the #1 cause of employee disengagement is poor communication between departments. Our Internal Service Survey (ISS) resolves these challenges and more by measuring the internal customer experience at virtually every touch point. We don’t just stop at capturing the information, we provide training and guidance that will allow you to develop and manage effective internal service action plans to ensure improvement.
Improve Internal Service
Outstanding internal service leads to greater productivity, increased employee engagement, and improved Member Experience. Our services will help you improve all facets of internal service, leading to productive communication, supportive etiquette, and efficient operations.
Identify Gaps & Measure Growth
Most organization struggle with how to assess internal service, and many third-party surveyors provide assessments that are too convoluted to coach from. Our years of experience & research allow us to accurately assess your team, offer coaching and tools for improvement, and measure your growth.
Accountability and Guidance
An executive-level reporting feature included in the ISS holds managers accountable in their duties of reviewing results and coaching to their employees. Built in coaching tools - including training videos and coaching forms - guide your managers to effectively provide their employees with feedback to help them identify areas in which they need to improve and areas in which they excel.
Employee Engagement Measurement Tool
Included in the ISS is our Employee Engagement Survey that measures Employee Effort, Process Improvement and Employee Loyalty (through Net Promoter Scores). Collect valuable insight and feedback from your employees regarding how easy it is for them to do business with other departments, what improvements could be made to make them be more successful at their jobs, and how likely they would be to recommend your credit union as a good place to work.
Consulting & Active Support
Our Internal Service Survey is not just a packaged system, but includes customized consulting and active support to meet your unique needs. Whatever service gaps your team may have, we will help you identify & solve them so that you can continue to grow your business.
