In order to assist us to respond appropriately, all forms of a complaint need to be documented and assessed as part of an ongoing process. If you are unhappy with our products and services we would like you to tell us about the dissatisfaction so we can investigate and where appropriate take action to correct the situation and prevent it from happening again.

2. PURPOSE
Our aim is to provide quality products and services and support services and if an issue arises and you are not happy or we have not met your expectations then we have a process in place to deal with this in an appropriate manner.
Our policy is to deal with all complaints in a professional and timely manner. We will work with all complainants to establish a resolution that is fair to all parties.

3. DEFINITION OF A COMPLAINT
A complaint or dispute (“complaint”) is an expression of dissatisfaction made to Wakefield Corporation in writing or orally in relation to our products and services, or ancillary support services, or our complaints handling process itself, where a response or resolution is explicitly or implicitly expected.

5. HOW WE DEAL WITH A COMPLAINT
We take your complaints seriously and wish to assess and resolve your complaints as they give us important information about how we can better service and support all our customers. Our Complaints Manager is responsible for reviewing complaints to ensure they are dealt with appropriately.
If we are unable to resolve your complaint on the spot we will acknowledge the complaint and try to resolve it as quickly as possible. In some situations, there are complicated facts or circumstances or situations where we need to deal with third parties. It may take several weeks to investigate your complaint and address the issues raised in your complaint.

We have implemented standard response times and procedures for dealing with complaints which will be assessed regularly to ensure that staff and customers are satisfied with response times.

7. INVESTIGATION OF COMPLAINT
We will make every reasonable effort to investigate all complaints. We will liaise with staff, contractors and any other relevant parties to investigate complaints and ensure a satisfactory outcome for the complainant. A record of all information relating to the investigation will be kept in a central repository and assigned to the relevant complaint.

8. RESOLUTION OF COMPLAINT
Following the appropriate investigation, we will advise the complainant, as soon as possible, of the action or decision taken in regards to the complaint. We will also take actions to prevent similar complaints occurring in the future.

9. ACCOUNTABILITY, COMMITMENT AND PROMOTION
All Wakefield Corporation staff, contractors and consultants are required to understand and follow the Complaints Policy and Procedures when dealing with a complaint. We will continue to review and improve our Complaints Policy, Procedures and Handling Processes.
