Customer Service Standards
The IIM and its Officers shall endeavour to exhibit customer friendly service skills and be professional and courteous in meeting the needs of our customers.
As part of our commitment to upholding professional standards, the IIM has implemented and periodically reviews policies to ensure that its application of accreditation guidelines is consistent across all applicants.
The IIM regards academic awarding bodies (as well as other professional bodies and Institutes) as our partners in raising and maintaining education standards in the many aspects of management. We endeavour to ensure that these partners are provided with clear and comprehensive information on IIM activities in a timely and efficient manner. We welcome input from our partners to ensure that the IIM continues to meet the changing needs of the operational environment.
Wherever possible, and without compromising our professional standards, the IIM strives to reduce the burden of unnecessary paperwork.
The IIM seeks fair, just and prompt solutions to any complaints and appeals. All such issues should be directed to the Secretariat in the first instance, where they will be acknowledged and directed to the appropriate person for action. An appeal process to the Management Board is in place for any disputes regarding accreditation and Membership awards.
Information about our organisation and its work is available from the Secretariat. Information is also available and regularly updated on our website at www.iim.org.uk. The Institute complies fully with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998. Any personal or confidential information held by the IIM about a member, applicant or partner is fully accessible to that person or body for review or editing, by contacting the Secretariat.
Consultation is an important part of meeting our objectives. The IIM conducts regular surveys of the needs and perceptions of its customers, using the feedback to enhance its service. Provision for giving feedback is also included in our website.
