Customer Centricity Announces Winners in Contest

Contest Winners Share Innovative Ideas on Motivating and Rewarding Customer Service Employees

Hudson, New Hampshire, January 6, 2004: Customer Centricity, Inc. announced the winners of its contest on rewarding and motivating employees it launched in December.  A panel of Customer Centricity associates compiled the submissions and selected the best ideas.

"The number of submissions and quality of the programs that companies have instituted was really astounding," said Customer Centricity founder and president Craig Bailey.  "It was quite difficult to select the very best, as all the submissions demonstrated innovated thinking and extreme dedication to team building.  From our view, all the companies that made submissions are winners because they are taking action and providing ways including employees in decisions and showing them how they impact the performance of the company.  Bottom line, they get results."

The top submissions were selected for the breadth and uniqueness of their approaches.  These submissions were provided by:

  • Robyn Grabble, Director of Solution Center at ADP National Account Services
  • Pat Killebrew, Senior Director of Enterprise Information Technology at Digex Corporation

The company approaches used by these companies demonstrated that a combination of financial incentives, active/involved management, and a little bit of fun can be all it takes to improve employee morale and performance.

"As an incentive to provide World Class service, we have a quarterly compensation plan that focuses on both quantitative and qualitative metrics," wrote Ms. Grable.  "In addition, we facilitate business fun campaigns that promote focus on the metrics, client satisfaction, call handling skills (target skills that increase customer satisfaction), and team building."

The submissions also showed that offering ways of feeling involved and learning from examples can also be good motivators for customer service employees.

"Incenting and rewarding customer service is about setting an example for your team," added Ms. Killebrew.  "This is 'catching them at being good,' reinforcing the right behaviors at every turn, and keeping the dialogue open."

The full submissions for the winners can be viewed on the Customer Centricity web site at www.customercentricity.biz.
