Serivce Industry Talent Management Team Leader

Linda H. Petrini

Ms. Petrini recently managed several test groups participating in a national study to develop benchmarks for various sales and customer service positions in the service industry. A veteran of sales and customer service, Linda appreciates the subtle distinctions and differences in position demands between direct sales, outgoing call center sales, incoming call center sales and customer service.

Serivce Industry Talent Management Challenges & Opportunities

Million dollar advertising and PR programs go up in smoke each time your front line employee gives poor service to your customer. Keeping existing customers costs a fraction of attracting a new one. Step one in the service industry is to attract, train and retain customer centric employees. These employees require top managers who select talent and coach employees according to their strengths. The winners in the fiercely competitive service industry will field the best employees and managers.

The key to fielding the winning team is to benchmark each service position and recruit to the benchmark. Additionally, select managers based on the manager benchmark, create a strength based culture and train all employees in customer service. Develop regular customer and employee satisfaction feedback surveys to monitor success, spot trends and manage continuous improvement.
