The Positive Side Of Moving Claims

The Positive Side Of Moving Claims

It is easy to understand that working in a claims department is a very difficult job.  People are going to vent their frustration and anger at the problem and often they don’t know where else to turn to for help.

This is just one reason why a claims department needs to train their staff by teaching the best way to show these customers that you do care and you are there to put the situation right.

Customer often need to express their anger, but unfortunately, a claims department will get the brunt of their frustration. Since the claims department deals with all the problems, teaching employees how to handle these situations is key to ensure that you don’t end up with a high turnaround of staff.  Getting new people to handle claims all the time can lead to more problems for the customer and can add to their frustration.

It is important as a manager to ensure staff are focusing on the positive outcomes for the customer, instead of the negative side of working in a claims department.

While it can seem frustrating to a customer who is trying to solve a situation, it is not great for staff to constantly deal with aggressive customers each time they answer the phone. If employees have the right training to calm a situation and to show compassion to their customer, they are more likely to see a positive outcome.   Not only will they give that customer complete satisfaction, but it means that they too will have a pleasant working experience.

There are times that customers will be thankful for the hard work of the claims department. However, it is also part of the process to ensure that claims and payments to customers are fair.   This is to ensure that no fraudulent claims are processed and paid out.

It is important as a moving business owner to ensure the training of staff to deal with customer complaints as calmly as possible, putting the customer at ease with a difficult situation.
