How Bryq assesses Sales and Customer Service in candidates
Customers are critical to the success of businesses, meaning that they must be adequately handled and treated. According to research, customers are the lifeblood of any profit-oriented organization, and their orders can be viewed as the cause of the business unit's existence. Thus, sales and customer service skills are highly prized. Whether they are providing manufactured goods or business and professional services, businesses rely on their employees to advertise their products and services and keep the customers satisfied.
