Utilities

Regulatory conduct standards and enforcement is now firmly on the agenda for the utilities sector. It is set to become a key priority in the future. Ofgem and Ofwat are challenging providers to improve customer treatment. Consideration of customer’s means and needs, and ensuring good outcomes, has become critical.

Typically the utilities sector is not achieving the same levels of customer satisfaction as other sectors. Customer dissatisfaction is growing, particularly around the complaint handling process. For the energy sector this has become a main reason for switching supplier. To mitigate this risk suppliers need to put increased focus on creating effective complaints management processes.
