25 Customer Service Skills Every Company Should Require [Infographic]

25-customer-service-skills

When was the last time you talked to a customer service rep who was friendly and helpful? There are people in customer service who pride themselves on genuinely helping customers, but there are just as many who don’t. Sometimes it feels like customer service barely exists anymore. Social media has affected customer service in a good way, but there is a long way to go. These are 25 customer service skills that anyone working in that field might benefit from having.

I know that working in customer service can be stressful and exhausting. It takes a special kind of person to enjoy that type of work. I mean, imagine what it would be like to talk to disgruntled customers all day long. It’s like solving one problem just to go to the next problem, nonstop. There are definitely some customer service skills you can develop to make the job a little easier.

This infographic called 25 Skills For Excellent Customer Service by Customer Service Heroes (design by EyeCandy Infographic) explains each one of these skills. If you click over on the Customer Service Heroes link, you can read an in-depth article on this topic. After reading all these, it almost seems like if a person developed all of these customer service skills, they would transform into a superhero.

If anyone truly has all these skills, they would probably be able to handle any problem life throws at them. If you have these skills, they are definitely worth including on your customer service resume. If every company required their reps to have these skills, our lives as consumers would be so much better. If you’d like to know which types of companies get the most customer service complaints online, you can click over to Which Industries Get The Most Customer Service Complaints On Social Media.

Hello Diana, thanks for the article.

Everyone wants and expects excellent customer service but few of us can provide it all of the time.

The starting point for excellent customer service is identifying and hiring employees who will give excellent customer service all the time.

It is not hard to find and hire excellent customer service representatives but we do need to know how to do it.
