Raising the Standard: Effective Complaint Management


This workshop provides an overview of the essential elements for an effective complaint handling system.

Using the Australian Standard for complaint handling as a reference, participants are given guidance about what good complaint policies and systems should look like. We examine cultural and organisational issues relating to complaints, and provide an opportunity to learn how to use complaints to improve service delivery. Participants are given the chance to apply what they have learned by reviewing their own agency’s complaint handling systems.

Who should attend

This workshop is designed for staff responsible for developing, managing or implementing complaint handling policies and systems, including quality assurance, corporate governance managers.
