Social Customer Care Communications Manager-1438110


Come join the dynamic and fast-paced environment of customer service & support within HP’s $56 billion Printing & Personal Systems division, where you will gain valuable experience and be exposed to our social customers care operations. We are the fastest growing support channel within HP, with a team that is based across the US, EMEA and Asia Pacific. Every second, four customers turn to social media for HP printer, PC or tablet support.
On the surface this seems straightforward: A customer posts, and we reply. However, supporting customers in social media is much more involved. To handle the complexity and increase in volume, HP created the Social Customer Care team in 2008 with the charter of creating an HP online community to help consumers get answers. Within a year, we extended our reach to serve communities in seven languages, developed one of the first employee engagement programs in the industry, and launched support in Twitter.
Today, HP reaches out to customers posting questions on 103 sites around the world from Amazon Reviews to WeChat. It has a world class customer and employee advocate program called the HP Expert Program. The insights gained from listening to customers and improving products and support content helps improve the overall customer experience.
