The Challenge

Staffordshire County Council embarked on a journey to improve its citizen-centric approach, aiming to evaluate the organization’s customer service culture, responsiveness, and overall service quality.

 

However, the lack of effective measurement tools posed a challenge in validating improvements and benchmarking progress.

The Solution

As a returning GovMetric customer, Staffordshire County Council recognised the need for a comprehensive organisational approach to customer service. Partnering with GovMetric, the Council acquired a tool that everybody within the organisation would have access to, regardless of the size and budget availability of specific teams.

 

GovMetric CX allows Staffordshire to understand its citizen needs and drive service improvement in a holistic way, encompassing various metrics across multiple feedback points within Council services such as Highways, Social Care, and Registration Services.

Outcomes

After implementing GovMetric CX, Staffordshire County Council was able to not only gather valuable feedback from their citizens at different customer journey points but also capture staff feedback with the introduction of their Employee Satisfaction Score (eNPS) within the whole internal team. Traditionally this was handled by a Microsoft Form and processed in an Excel sheet, but with GovMetric, employees received surveys directly to their inboxes allowing the Council to achieve the highest response rate ever achieved.

Transferring eNPS to the GovMetric platform has enabled the People Services team to:

The Council also utilised Email, SMS campaigns and web links across Highways, Social Care and Registration Services. A high survey response rate allows the Council to make continuous informed service transformation decisions in real time. Across the organisation the Council is receiving over a thousand citizen responses per month.
