Complaint Management

Complaints are a valuable source of feedback and an important tool for business and staff development. Diligent and prompt attention to complaints can help us identify the needs of our clients and stakeholders, understand our business shortcomings, increase client satisfaction and improve overall performance.

A dedicated complaints management assessor handles all complaints discretely and confidentially.

All complaints are rated according to their importance and priority. However, independent from the priority, a confirmation of receipt will be sent within two working days.

While anonymous complaints are not encouraged, they are accepted. Complainants are encouraged to provide as much information as possible which may be of assistance when investigating the complaint. It should, however, be noted that an anonymous complaint may be more difficult to investigate since it may for example be difficult to obtain further details of the circumstances relating to the complaint.

To learn more about how we deal with complaints, please see our Complaint Management Procedure flowchart.
