Description

This workshop will provide you some tips on how the consumer and the customer service staff can make some adjustments in behaviors to get through the challenges during and after Covid-19. Let’s explore and discuss how agency consumers have changed and what you think consumers are expecting. Are agencies communicating the change to consumers? How should CAA staff respond? Can we provide excellent customer services during these challenges and unprecedented times?
