Why is this training important?

How your employees interact with and treat customers can do more than add value to your organisation – it says a lot about the way your company conducts business and the code of ethics it follows. Organisations that sell goods or services should invest in training for their employees so they are aware of how to treat customers fairly.

Not only will this training help you to meet your regulatory responsibilities when it comes to working with customers, but a respectful, tolerant, and compliant workforce can help drive sales and give you a strong competitive advantage.

Why is it important to treat customers fairly?
Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) is an outcomes-based regulatory approach designed to ensure that regulated financial institutions deliver clearly set out fairness outcomes for financial customers. According to the FCA, all regulated firms must be able to demonstrate that fair treatment of customers is at the heart of their business model. Customers also expect financial services and products that meet their needs from firms they trust.
What are the six outcomes of treating customers fairly?
As per the FCA guidelines, Principle 6 requires firms to pay ‘due regard to the interests of its customers and treat them fairly’. There are six outcomes that firms should strive to achieve which include: fair treatment, products are designed to meet customer needs, clear information on products, suitable advice is given, products perform to expectations and no unreasonable post-sale barriers.
How to deal with a dissatisfied customer?
According to the Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA), businesses must have 'effective and transparent procedures for the reasonable and prompt handling of complaints'. This also requires businesses to publish a Complaints Policy so that all existing and new employees can familiarise themselves with the relevant procedures involved with handling complaints effectively.
