Improving outcomes and experiences for financial counsellors
We believe that we share a common goal with financial counsellors, namely working co-operatively with our mutual customers and assisting them in resolving their outstanding debts. Our view is that by focusing on this common goal, not only can we only improve outcomes for our customers but also improve efficiency and experience for everyone involved.
We offer a dedicated line of communication for financial counsellors acting on behalf of customers who are experiencing hardship or vulnerability. This communication line is facilitated by our specially trained Customer Assist Team. The customer’s authorised representative can contact the Customer Assist Team directly to discuss their concerns, any sensitive or complex matters, or just to have a general discussion regarding our policy and procedure in relation to hardship, complaints and disputes.
Actively seeking opportunities
Collection House has proudly sponsored and attended financial counselling events and conferences across Australia for many years. We actively seek opportunities to become involved in the community sector through training programs, agency meetings, seminars and conferences. We use these opportunities to seek feedback, build relationships and better understand some of the challenges being faced by our customers and how we can respond.
If there is an initiative that your agency is working on that we could help with or participate in, we would love to hear from you.
