Customer Service Commitment Profile: Online Assessment

Authors: Jon Warner


This 48 item, Customer Service Commitment Profile online assessment helps individuals understand how much “service excellence” is offered to the customer by organization and self. The assessment results provide coaching tips for improvement and development planning templates.










This assessment compares perceptions of the organization’s commitment to customers against the respondents own commitment to customers. Both ratings can be compared to a normative “realm of best practice”. Useful from an organization and an individual perspective. Competencies include:

·        Service leadership, vision, and commitment

·        Feedback and the voice of the customer

·        Establishing service standards

·        Empowering people to serve the customer

·        Customer-serving processes and systems

·        Rewards and recognition for service excellence
