Stepping Up Service: Appreciating the Employee

Employees of any organization play a critical role in the level of service that is delivered to customers. And employees that feel appreciated by the organization for the work they perform are going to have more incentive to deliver the best service possible. Alan and Ed discuss why showing appreciation to employees for the work they do is important, explain some of the aspects of effective appreciation, and then provide examples of ways that appreciation can be shown to a variety of employee types.

Alan and Ed also provide their “Customer Service Story of the Month” where they share their own experiences from the last 30 days and lessons we can learn from those encounters.
