proud to announce that Cornish Mutual has been chosen as a finalist

Everyone is Valued' was granted finalist status by the Customer
Service Training Network - a mutual self-help membership body that
shares best practice ideas, delivers training and promotes
excellence in customer service.
We believe strongly that in order to provide the best level of
service to our Members, our people must be happy, engaged and feel
respected and valued. Cornish Mutual has developed an inclusive
approach to training which focuses on training for all, by all.
This means our teams are not only trained to do the best job
possible but are also trained in peer coaching.
