5 5 Mechanism for Complaints Resolution The Principle in Practice: Providers have a mechanism for collecting, responding in a timely manner, and resolving problems for customers. The mechanism is used to resolve individual complaints and improve products/services. Consider this: Suggestions boxes are not effective for responding to specific problems in a timely way.

6 6 Set a complaints policy Actively use a mechanism Train staff A written policy requires customer complaints to be taken seriously, fully investigated and resolved in a timely manner without bias. Put in place a mechanism to handle customer complaints, dedicate staff resources to it, and ensure that it is actively used. Train staff to handle complaints and refer them to the appropriate person for investigation and resolution. The Principle in Practice

7 7 Inform clients Monitor the system Use the information Inform clients of their right to complain and how to submit a complaint to the appropriate person. Use internal audit or another monitoring system to check that complaints are resolved satisfactorily. Use complaints information is to improve products, sales techniques, and other interactions with clients. Use it to correct mistakes that may be harmful to other clients. The Principle in Practice

11 11 How Dissatisfied Clients Affect the Institution A very satisfied client will talk about his/her experiences with 3-4 people, but a dissatisfied client will tell 8-9 people. When a client’s complaints are received, answered, and solved, there is a 90% chance that s/he will return to the institution. 90% of dissatisfied clients whose problems are not resolved will never return to do business with the institution again. Findings from the Field

12 12 No Complaints Completely Satisfied Customers If your institution does not receive concerns or complaints, be careful: Clients could be happy with your products and customer service, or Clients might not feel empowered to share their concerns and complaints or They might not know how to do so, or Clients might not feel like they can complain without this affecting their business relationship with the institution.
