When sponsored by a company this Diploma will be given to the graduate with an Annual or Semi Annual Graduation event financed by the client. SQI will also add to our web site the names of all graduates. We have the software to track participation and utilization of the skills we teach on our web site. All clients and graduates should be using our free software to make sure the employee participated in all sessions and is using the skills each course teaches.

Benefits to Clients:
If a company could provide FREE education, diplomas and credentials to employees with NO cost to them or the student that is the concept behind this plan. If you have a company of 100, 500, 2500, 5000 or 10,000 employees and you could offer employees the opportunity to get a diploma that they can use for the rest of their life and increase their income upon graduation that is the motivation behind this plan. The company benefits from having less employee turnover, individuals wanting to move up and advance their skills.
These companies have to agree to:
A 20% pay increase for the graduate of Customer Service and 25% for Master of Customer Service. These graduates will become more valuable and will most likely receive a promotion which will exceed the 20% -25% compensation increase in order to participate. This is a mandatory requirement to insure participation.
A Company will be offered 1 new program a year for 1/3 the price plus free replacement materials for new employees so this Diploma program will not stop.
A Company should be able to reduce their employee turnover with this formula and develop superior employees
Employee turnover averages about 25-30% for most companies. Customer Service development of their employees must never stop.
There is no charge for this service. It will be part of the Service Culture investment and the online learning certification.
For individuals as these courses are completed they become more valuable. All online learning courses have a test that must be passed to earn their Certificate. With the Graduate of Customer Service and Master of Customer Service Diplomas their income should increase. The company if funding these courses they should also be prepared to increase the participants compensation.
SQI is offering Diplomas for all those who successfully graduate from at least 7 or 9 SQI courses. This is part of all service culture plans. We provide recognition, credentials and increased income for graduates.
We go to the University to get a degree, The objective and result is more income, status and advancement. You carry the credentials with you your entire life from job to job. If no one cared about their degree not many people would go to college. When you get a valuable degree you make more money. Customer Service is a valuable diploma. There is more value graduating from Harvard than a small college no one has heard of. Service Quality Institute is the global leader in customer service and the only organization in the world focusing solely on customer service.
If you did not make more money from going to college not many people would go. We need a strong incentive for rewarding more valuable employees. This plan should also reduce employee turnover because the organization is funding this degree and employees will have high value for each of these Degrees.
St. Thomas University in Minnesota where I graduated from charges $54,810 for a part-time MBA to $89,550 for an executive MBA. The investment for Graduate of Customer Service and Master of Customer Service are a small fraction of this.
The purpose is to help the employee see a personal and financial reward for their efforts and participation. It will also create an incentive for the employees to push their company leadership to offer more SQI courses and more often.
