How To Build a Positive Customer Service Desk Culture

Hire for Culture

Reflect on your company’s values and hire people who embody them and will contribute to their evolution. Develop a set of values that resonate with the workplace you envision, fostering a culture where employees feel they have the ability to excel.

Treat Employees Well

Evaluate your treatment of employees, ensuring that benefits contribute to their well-being. Establish a top-down culture where leadership exemplifies company values, creating a positive customer service desk work environment that enhances talent acquisition and retention.

Create a Sociable Workplace Environment

Foster teamwork and social interaction through team-building activities. In a remote or hybrid setting, explore virtual team-building initiatives to strengthen connections among team members. This could be as simple as an online coffee break.

Build Psychological Safety

Inspired by a HubSpot article we encourage prioritizing psychological safety within your team.  Give team members the ability to voice ideas and admit mistakes. Inclusion in team meetings and team-building activities can contribute to building psychological safety.

Encourage Personal Development

Invest in continuous professional development for your team to ensure they are well-equipped to be representatives of your company’s values and deliver exceptional customer service. Does their employment package offer payment for ongoing training?  Do you ensure that they can refresh their skills during their workday? 

Rewards and Feedback

Incentivize and recognize employees who exemplify your company’s values in their interactions with customers. In a situation when an employee falls short of expectation offer constructive feedback NOT blame.

Define and Reinforce Your Service Desk Culture

Let employees know what is expected from them. Document your company’s culture, values, mission, and vision. Communicate these principles clearly to employees and customers, supplying a guiding philosophy for decision-making.
