In May 2017, The TCM Group was subject of a rigorous assessment as part of an independent assessment with Customer First.
This section explains more about the report and findings.
The TCM Group continues to be a successful business with a strong focus on the service provided to customers. The range of support it offers is wide and includes training and workplace mediation, investigations and leadership as well as management development.
Since its previous Customer First assessment, the company has gone through considerable change, which has resulted in a restructuring of the business, its teams and the introduction of franchises in some regions. This change is bringing business efficiencies with the objective of moving the company forward and ensuring its long-term viability.
The TCM Group has a clear vision for the future: “to empower people and organisations to adopt new approaches to dispute and complaints resolution; workplace relations; human resources and leadership development”. Clients are identified at the first point of contact and supported so that they can benefit from all the programmes run by the group in order to tackle these issues.
Client interactions are tailored to meet specific needs. The company works in partnership with customers to develop training needs analysis. These then help put in place systems and processes that encourage co-operative problem solving, open dialogue and stakeholder engagement.
People at The TCM Group are proud of the role that the company plays and its impact on the organisations they support. They talk about the vision for the future and the implications this has for the way they work, making sure they operate with integrity and excellence in order to maintain the good reputation of the business.
Customer information is currently recorded via Salesforce. This continues to be effective and it helps to target different client groups very effectively. The company has also implemented a marketing automation system to facilitate tasks such as emails, social media and other website actions.
The TCM Group has a recruitment process in place to ensure the best match possible from potential candidates. The process involves the assessment of candidates against the company’s values.
There is an updated employee handbook and a new manual with policies and procedures to ensure that the company’s practices are aligned and help people act quickly and effectively.
