Customer Service Excellence (CSE)
In September 2011 Environment and Culture became the first Directorate within Birmingham City Council to attain Customer Service Excellence (CSE) accreditation in all of its service areas. The Customer Service Excellence standard offers public services a practical tool for driving customer-focused change within their organisation. The Directorate will strive to maintain the accreditation and seek to improve upon its current assessment.
