Complaints Policy and Procedure
Greenlight Consultancy Group is committed to providing a quality service and working in an open, accountable, and transparent way that builds trust and respect from our customers. One of the ways in which we can continue to improve our service is by listening and responding to the views of our customers and focusing on responding positively to complaints and ensuring we fix any mistakes in a swift and professional manner.
Therefore, we aim to ensure that:
We recognise that many concerns will be raised informally and dealt with quickly.
Our aims are to:
This policy ensures that we welcome compliments and provide guidelines for dealing with complaints from members of the public about our services, facilities, and staff.
A complaint is defined as any expression of dissatisfaction; however it is expressed. This would include complaints expressed face to face, via a phone call, in writing, via email or any other method. All staff should have sufficient knowledge to be able to identify an “expression of dissatisfaction” even when the word “complain”, or “complaint” is not used.
We are always glad to hear from people who are satisfied with the services we offer. All compliments are recorded, acknowledged, and a copy is sent to the relevant service manager to provide feedback to the member of staff or service.
The formal complaints procedure is intended to ensure that all complaints are handled fairly, consistently, and wherever possible resolved to the complainant’s satisfaction.
Greenlight Consultancy Group Limited’s responsibility will be to:
A complainant’s responsibility is to:
Except in exceptional circumstances, every attempt will be made to ensure that both the complainant and Greenlight Consultancy Group maintain confidentiality. However, the circumstances giving rise to the complaint may be such that it may not be possible to maintain confidentiality (with each complaint judged on its own facts). Should this be the case, the situation will be explained to the complainant.
Written records must be made by Greenlight Consultancy Group at each stage of the procedure.
In the first instance, staff member(s) must establish the seriousness of the complaint. An informal approach is appropriate when it can be achieved. But if concerns cannot be satisfactorily resolved informally, then the formal complaints procedure should be followed. A response will be provided to the complainant within 24-hours.
If the complaint cannot be resolved informally, the customer/client should be advised that a formal complaint may be made, and the following procedure should be explained to them. It may sometimes be appropriate for a different member of staff, preferably a member of the Management Team, to make this explanation.
