CUES launches new ServiStar Program
MADISON, Wis.- CUES has partnered with Atlanta-based consulting firm Michael Neill & Associates to launch the new ServiStar Program. Designed specifically for credit unions, the 13-point training and staff development program includes on-site consultation and staff training at the credit union; use of sales and service tracking software; assistance in developing sales collateral and a staff incentive program; all training materials; and unlimited off-site support. The ServiStar Program is implemented over 18 months. Neill, author of the CUES' publication Developing a Sales and Service Culture, describes the program as being "in tune with the way credit unions work. It's not just a bank model that's being re-tooled for credit unions. It centers on a member-centric environment, rather than focusing on `hard sales' training that often leaves credit union members and staff frustrated." Curious if the program is a good fit for your credit union? A questionnaire to evaluate the credit union's level of sales and service culture can be completed by logging on to www.cues.org and selecting "Services" from the menu bar.
