The customer is always rightDavid Patrick
Our job is to help create a meaningful connections with our clients’ customers. To do this we work hard to understand the world in which they live in, their attitudes and their beliefs. Only then can we successfully connect with them to change behaviour. One of the best ways to understand their world is to listen to them. That’s why we regularly consult our panel of customers. Through listening to their views we really get under the skin of how they think and feel. Having just completed a research brief where we consulted our construction panel on their attitudes to training, this revealed some fascinating insights into what motivates them to train their staff.
You might think that health and safety training is solely about protecting workers on construction sites. In fact training can give firms a competitive edge through, for example, minimising down time following accidents. So our focus when communicating with employers is less on how best to protect their staff and more on the bottom line benefits to them of training. By constantly listening to customers we create a much stronger connection with them and by engaging with them we help to change their behaviour.
