Section 1: Why invest? Delivering business goals through client feedback

Increasingly client feedback programmes are being used to support the delivery of wider strategic goals and to improve business performance.

The most successful firms realise that measuring and improving client service is only one of the drivers for conducting more feedback with clients.

Examples of how feedback is being used to deliver wider business goals include:

  • Measuring fee-earner and team performance, and linking to personal development plans, performance reviews and reward mechanisms
  • Growing relationships with clients by uncovering new opportunities to work together in the future
  • Increasing profitability of client engagements by identifying low-value activities that can be delivered more effectively, and by addressing weaknesses in service to reduce write-off on future engagements

  • Informing strategic decisions about future investments to develop services to address client needs currently unmet by your firm and its competitors.
