Persyou – Complaints Policy

Introduction 

 

Persyou Ltd views complaints as an opportunity to learn and improve for the future, as well as a chance to put things right for the person [or organisation] that has made the complaint. 

 

Our policy is: 

  • To provide a fair complaints procedure which is clear and easy to use for anyone wishing to make a complaint 

  • To publicise the existence of our complaints procedure so that people know how to contact us to make a complaint 

  • To make sure everyone at Persyou Ltd knows what to do if a complaint is received 

  • To make sure all complaints are investigated fairly and in a timely way 

  • To make sure that complaints are, wherever possible, resolved and that relationships are repaired 

  • To gather information which helps us to improve what we do 

 

Definition of a Complaint 

 

A complaint is any expression of dissatisfaction, whether justified or not, about any aspect of Persyou Ltd. 

 

Where Complaints Come From 

 

Complaints may come from any individual, volunteer or organisation who has a legitimate interest in Persyou Ltd, including the general public if something is perceived to be improper. A complaint can be received verbally, by phone, by email or in writing. This policy does not cover complaints from staff or associates, who should refer to Persyou Ltd on such matters. 

 

Confidentiality 

 

All complaint information will be handled sensitively, telling only those who need to know and following any relevant data protection requirements. 

Responsibility 

 

Overall responsibility for this policy and its implementation lies with the Directors of Persyou Ltd.

 

Review 

 

This policy is reviewed regularly and updated as required.

Receiving Complaints

Complaints received by telephone or in person need to be recorded. 

 

The person who receives a phone or in person complaint should: 

 

  • Write down the facts of the complaint 

  • Take the complainant’s name, address and telephone number 

  • Note down the relationship of the complainant to Persyou Ltd

  • Tell the complainant that we have a complaints procedure 

  • Tell the complainant what will happen next and how long it will take 

  • Where appropriate, ask the complainant to send a written account by post or by email so that the complaint is recorded in the complainant’s own words 

 

 

Resolving Complaints 

 

In many cases, a complaint is best resolved by the person responsible for the issue being complained about. If the complaint has been received by that person, they may be able to resolve it swiftly and should do so if possible and appropriate. Whether or not the complaint has been resolved, the complaint information should be passed to the Persyou Ltd Director within five business days. 

 

On receiving the complaint, the Director records it in the complaints Logbook. If it has not already been resolved, they delegate an appropriate person to investigate it and to take appropriate action. If the complaint relates to a specific person, they should be informed and given a fair opportunity to respond. 

Complaints should be acknowledged by the person handling the complaint within five working days. The acknowledgement should say who is dealing with the complaint and when the person complaining can expect a reply. A copy of this complaints procedure should be attached. Ideally complainants should receive a definitive reply within a month. If this is not possible because for example, an investigation has not been fully completed, a progress report should be sent with an indication of when a full reply will be given. 

 

Whether the complaint is justified or not, the reply to the complainant should describe the action taken to investigate the complaint, the conclusions from the investigation, and any action taken as a result of the complaint. 

 

External Stage 

 

Persyou Ltd is certified by the International Coach Federation (ICF), the complainant can complain to the ICF at any stage. Information found here: https://coachingfederation.org/

 

Monitoring and Learning from Complaints 

 

Complaints are reviewed annually to identify any trends which may indicate a need to take further action.
