Besides this, the study suggested some strategies for improving employee contribution in service recovery such as; Management needs to put emphasis on staff to develop customer focus, need for flexibility of bank processes to reduce bureaucracy, provide alternative channels to customers, the need to decentralize banking operations to increase productivity, they do need document root cause analysis and adoption to fill gaps in service recovery processes and finally they need to ensure that customer complaints are resolved immediately and training the employees on the important of service recovery.
