YES Energy endeavours to manage each complaint it receives in a respectful, empathetic and efficient manner towards the customer involved. YES Energy regularly trains their representatives on techniques to encourage an amicable relationship between the customer and YES Energy to remain after the dispute is resolved.
For each complaint, our representatives are encouraged to:
• Be customer focused
• Be open and accountable
• Act fairly and proportionately
• Resolve all complaints efficiently and effectively
YES Energy also encourages its representatives to be patient, articulate and be able to fairly balance the interests of the organisation with those of the consumer. YES Energy always encourages its representatives to communicate legitimate complaints to the leadership team so that the business can effectively assess any need for changes to policies and processes.
We will always ensure the training undertaken helps strengthen communication skills and alert representatives to the different needs of consumers from different cultural, ethnic, socio-economic or educational backgrounds.
