Achieving Excellent Customer Service Requires Cultural Competence

One thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.     - Albert Schweitzer

As diversity among the U.S. population increases, so does the need for culturally competent service. Healthcare professionals will increasingly see clients with a broad range of perspectives regarding health, often influenced by their social or cultural backgrounds. Every client service effort begins with finding out what clients value and engaging every employee in the discovery and delivery process. Wealth in Diversity Consulting assists healthcare organizations struggling to manage relationships with inside and outside clients. Understanding the client, and strategically aligning services to meet these needs will reap benefits. Our goal is to help healthcare organizations learn how to become more culturally sensitive and responsive to clients/patients in order to deliver safe and quality healthcare services. Cultural barriers pose a major challenge to healthcare organizations and healthcare professionals seeking to provide quality care.

Our Programs Enable Organizations to:
  • Promote and support the attitudes, behaviors, knowledge, and skills necessary for staff to work respectfully and effectively with clients and each other in a culturally diverse work environment.
  • Develop and implement strategies to recruit, retain and promote qualified, diverse, and culturally competent administrative, clinical and support staff who are trained and qualified to address the needs of the culturally diverse communities they serve.
