    Guidelines to Developing Training Program (Instructional Purpose with explanations. Use a business of your choice).

    1. Determine Business Type

    The first thing you need to do is identify the type of business you are interested in designing an employee training program for. Examples of businesses are:

    • Customer Service Center (CSC)
    • Fine restaurant or restaurant
    • Clothing Store, etc.

    2. Establish a name for your Business and Give a Background Information.

    • For example, is it a new or existing business?
    • If it is a new business, illustrate how you conceived the business.
    • For example, if you are interested in a CSC business, you might want to talk about how you enjoy solving peoples' problems since you were (mention how many years) old
    • Your passion to see people happy after solving their problems
    • Your experience as a customer service representative (if you have any)
    • Create a mission and vision for your organization.
    • Discuss the type of customer service your business would be providing (e.g. answering questions related to wireless service, cable service or online products you contracted from a major provider, etc.,). For example, it could be identifying and resolving customer's billing issues, receiving payments, and educating customer on how to use the interactive response system (IVR) to make payments in the future.

Discuss that CSR will be trained by experienced and focused training specialists about handling calls related to issues like: (1) billing, (2) payment, and (3) educating customers to use IVR to avoid payment by using CSR - discuss how, for example, CSR can take only one payment without charging $5 from customer and this would be noted on customer's account.

    • Establish a Standard Customer Service Guideline or Procedure: This portion needs to flow logically with the points you have built up so far. For example, considering (insert your company's name) as a new business, more than likely, there is no existing written communication or procedure for CSR to follow. Putting this into consideration, it is the duty of (business name) to generate a functional procedure that is in written form, detailed, concise, easy to follow, and aligns with your organization's mission and vision.
