The voice of the organization to the public, customer care representatives and public relations staff face an arduous task-from dealing with difficult customers, customers with peculiar interests, customers seeking information unrelated to the services the office offers, abusive customers, customers who use threats, overwork among others. Organizations need to adopt a practice of continuous improvement of systems, processes and skills of this caliber of staff to ensure that all have the right public relations and customer care skills set.
