Customer Service Compensation is Still Subject to Budget-Related Belt-Tightening

Survey participants report on salaries, incentives, incentives, and recognition for entry-level customer service reps through managers.
Sept. 10, 2012 - PRLog -- Budgets are still tight, base salaries have increased only slightly, bonus and incentive payments are smaller, and the use of some non-cash awards has also declined. That's the negative news from the "Customer Service Newsletter's Salary and Incentives Survey."

There are a few bright spots, however. When asked how salaries for customer service reps have changed over the last three years, 75 percent of the companies participating reported increases and none of the participants reported decreases.

Here is the breakdown:

 0%  Decreased
25%  Remained essentially the same
59%  Increased slightly
11%  Increased moderately
 5%  Increased dramatically

Full results of the Salary and Incentives Survey appear in the September issue of "Customer Service Newsletter."
