Delivering for all our customers

Phil Anderson

The fundamental fabric of Sysdoc is delivering value and providing an excellent service to all our customers. We have 30 years of history, where we have consistently demonstrated a relentless commitment to achieving the highest possible outcomes for our clients. Sysdoc is proud that our customers are at the heart of everything we do, which is highlighted by our ongoing commitment to the MCA Consulting Excellence Scheme.

Recently, our ‘fabric’ has evolved by extending the definition of ‘our customer’ to include our internal colleagues. Sysdoc is striving to be a great place to work and is ensuring the commitment made to all our external customers through the MCA Consulting Excellence Scheme is being upheld and exceeded internally within the organisation. The idea of treating everyone as your customer is not new and is certainly not unique to Sysdoc. However, as the organisation continues to grow, it became increasingly important that a renewed focus is made by the business to drive customer first behaviours that put each and every colleague front of mind.

A great benefit of working for Sysdoc is that we won’t just talk about a good idea but act on it. Everyone in the organisation has an objective this year which is to:  

“Ensure a Customer First Approach (both external and internal), focusing on their needs and providing the highest quality output; always acting as an ambassador for the Sysdoc values”

All employees are empowered to find ways and demonstrate how they are delivering on our customer first approach. This is supported by the mature behaviours within the business that allows for instant and 360-degree feedback and recognition of the actions of our peers.

Moreover, within the last six months the business has taken obvious steps and delivered initiatives that support the customer first commitment. Recently Sysdoc has:

  • Completed office refurbishments that have improved the working environment
  • Provided options to reduce the burden of expenses for travelling consultants
  • Offered alternative and improved healthcare options
  • Streamlined the career development and promotion pathways
  • Provided a framework and tools for employees to drive their own training and development

As a consultancy our business is dependent on the great work we do for all our clients however this is not possible without creating and driving the right culture internally. We believe we are giving ourselves the best chance to succeed by driving a customer first mindset in everything we do and look forward to sharing more customer focused stories in the future.

Juggling January

As much as I love Christmas, I hate January. For me, January is the most difficult month of the year – oh hi January blues, long time no see…   Do you know that feeling? If not, then you can count yourself as lucky. January blues is a form of depression that some people feel after the magic of Christmas and holidays come to an end. Its secret ingredients: A lack of motivation, exhaustion, melancholy, and excess of melatonin.

How we live now

Regardless of the latest restrictions and the challenges that lie ahead, there is now light at the end of the tunnel. Albeit a light that comes in and out of focus for many. There is now a future where we can start to heal, to unite, renew and to plan for a more certain outlook. If 2020 taught us one thing, it was to expect the unexpected – to be prepared to change, adapt at a moment’s notice. A quality I am sure we did not know we needed to possess as critically as we do now. This has been equally applicable for organisations as it has for individuals – with business plans and personal goals alike upturned and forward planning a challenge. What has this, perhaps necessary, blip in the history of the world taught us? What do we want the post-COVID working world to feel like? Are there elements of how we live now, that we want to continue with?

Keeping it on the DL - Guest Speaker LPI Chairman Donald H Taylor

Shall we jump right in? Are L&D teams relevant anymore? Given the steer towards customised, personalised learning do you still need an L&D team. Well, we are walking into this vlog with a bang. It is a crucial question and the elephant in the room that we should all be asking ourselves. LPI Chairman and Guest Speaker for this month’s vlog Donald H Taylor cleverly approaches this question. So, the answer is yes and no. Unfortunately, you cannot measure learning, but most learning takes place outside what L&D does. We live in a world where people can increasingly access information themselves and there are so many options on the market that it is no longer sufficient to just rely on L&D functions. L&D needs to adjust to this new world and as we have experienced previously, they are not the sole gatekeepers to knowledge anymore. However, they can make themselves an essential cog in the machine. The scope of what L&D should be doing has increased and it needs to adapt so it can help individuals reach their potential. Let’s face facts, Covid-19 has given people the time and determination to take up learning on their own. Upskilling was already a huge priority pressing on people’s minds prior to 2020 and as we move to a remote world, online learning is not only essential but the default option.
