ISS ServiceAcademy: Creating a Secure Future for Companies and Employees

“Those who do not know the past cannot understand the present. If you do not understand the present, you cannot shape the future.”

August Bebel, politician and writer

As part of its ISS ServiceAcademy, ISS International School of Service Management conducts open seminars, study courses and trainings. These are designed for employees in companies that have recognized service as an engine for growth. The objective of the ISS education and training offers is to strengthen employees with new knowledge and skills and thus create competitive advantages and added value for their companies.

Only when service organizations and their employees adapt to the ever-changing requirements in service, they will remain successful and future-proof

In particular, globalization and digitization of the service business ‑ with new customer expectations, services, processes and partners – necessitates a profound transformation process. These changes represent a paradigm shift that affects almost every company and its employees. This is referred to as servitization and is a continuous development from product to services as a basic requirement for long-term business success. With the services offered by ISS ServiceAcademy, employees not only develop the necessary know-how; they also develop an ‘inner service attitude’, which means acting out of a service mind-set.

Advisory Board

The programs of the ISS ServiceAcademy are monitored by a voluntary advisory board. It guarantees continuous development and quality assurance of all educational courses of the ISS ServiceAcademy according to its statutes.

The advisory board also supports the programmatic orientation of ISS towards business excellence and sustainable corporate development with profitable growth.

Certificate Courses

In particular, the certificate courses are continuously reviewed and adjusted to practical relevance and kept up-to-date in collaboration with the advisory board, so that the courses are internationally trendsetting.

The work transfer tasks, final exams and exam papers that usually complete the certification courses ensure that the investment companies make in their employees returns many times.

The development of the service certificate courses and seminars has been accompanied by the ISS ServiceAcademy advisory board since 1993.
