MSD Customised Training on Customer Training Inside Out

A customised Training session was designed specific to MSD for excellent customer service with the recent restructure that took place with the advent of the Customer Advocacy Department. The training was conducted on the 26 & 27th July, 2018. It was designed by MSD HR Department and by no stranger to MSD, Ms. Charlene Pedro, Managing Director of Conventus Consultinc-Your HR Business Partner. She conducted previous internal training and is very familiar with the fast pace IT environment in which we operate.

We strongly believe when employees‘quality of work increases, their engagement behaviours -cognitively, emotionally and physically increases as they are better able to disburse exceptional quality service.

The learning objectives were for staff to be able to:

  • Display a positive attitude when serving both internal and external customer
  • Reinforce operating as one team
  • Focus on customers’ needs
  • Apply strategies to deliver service excellence to customers

Future sessions include teambuilding lunch and learn sessions to build better team spirit within and amongst the teams and engender a deeper appreciation of roles within the context of their contribution to delivering to our customer. To support the change MSD will continue to have more sessions to better serve you our valuable customers.
