The ILS Circle Of Trust
The ILS Circle of Trust covers the different factors that make up the positive relationships that the ILS team has with every person that they interact with on behalf of the company. Trust at ILS begins in a retail store with a retail staff member or an occupational therapist who assists customers to find a mobility solutionfor their individual needs.
Trust then transfers to the customer service team who patiently create information around the customer’s needs and this in turn flows into the warehouse for preparation towards dispatch. Trust is placed in our valued team of medical installers as they carefully load the various pieces of equipment into their vehicles. An important element of the ILS Circle of Trust is when our medical installers enter the client’s home. It is an honour to be accepted into anyone’s home and so it must always be treated with the utmost respect.
The ILS Circle of Trust is about supporting each other to perform our roles with professionalism, knowing that as we hand over an enquiry, our fellow colleague will action their role to competition, for a seamless customer experience.
At ILS, we are a group of people who share a series of common personality traits. We are all friendly, professional, courteous people who are inquisitive about life. This curiosity drives our innovation as we continuously strive for excellence. We are empathetic, listening and learning how best to help others with solutions based on our accumulated knowledge and overall life experiences.
From the moment a prospective employee is interviewed, our Head of People and Culture looks for these shared values and traits to ensure we maintain our place as Australian leaders in homecare mobility solutions. It is at the heart of our commitment to supporting our clients as they move through life.
