Survey Data Reveals Customer Service Centers are Embracing Low-Cost Performance Awards

75 percent of the companies participating in the "Customer Service Newsletter's Salary and Incentives Survey" report that they have some kind of Customer Service Week celebration to recognize and motivate their frontline staff.
 
Aug. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- Results of "Customer Service Newsletter's" 2012 Salary and Incentives Survey show a slight decline in the use of bonus and incentive compensation in the customer service center. In addition, the amount of that compensation has also declined.

In contrast, respondents report an increase in the use of low-cost performance recognition via plaques, acknowledgements, and group celebrations such as Customer Service Week.

Some 75 percent of the companies participating in this year's Salary and Incentives Survey report that they have some kind of Customer Service Week celebration to recognize and motivate their frontline staff.

As the customer service manager for one manufacturing company says, "All CSRs enjoy and appreciate Customer Service Week, in spite of the extra work and energy required.  They feel it is very special and it is created just for them."

Customer Service Week is celebrated annually during the first full week in October. Additional information is available at the event website http://www.CSWeek.com.

Complete data from the 2012 Salary and Incentives Survey appears in the September issue of "Customer Service Newsletter."
