Focus on limited-English proficient customers
One area of special attention should be the final section of the booklet, which reminds readers to know their options when working with a customer who is not fluent in English or has communication difficulties. All staff members should know who they can call on if they are having trouble communicating with a customer. A simple chart showing staff names, their extensions and specialties will go a long way in easing communication and avoiding frustration for both staff members and customers.
