Customer Service | SETBISIU

In April 2017, the University of Guam staff participated in the Delivering Excellent Customer Service training conducted by the Watson Training and Development. After the training, a UOG Customer Service Task Force was created with the goal of identifying necessary action items as well as developing the University of Guam Customer Service Standards, which will be used to guide our day-to-day interactions with university customers.

TELEPHONE ETIQUETTE

  • We will obtain the caller’s permission before placing the call “on hold” by asking and waiting for a response before initiating the hold function.
  • We will end the conversation in a courteous and professional way by thanking the caller. We will wait for the caller to hang up first.

VOICE MAIL

  • We will respond to voice mails within 24 hours during normal business hours.

  • We will work to anticipate the needs of those we serve by proactively working to meet their needs.
  • We will hold ourselves and each other accountable for our service commitment.
