Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
In recognition of being leading service providers globally, organizations and individuals were awarded with an International Service Excellence Award.
The Customer Service Institute of America (CSIA) is the body delegated by International Council of Customer Service Organizations (ICCSO) to manage the International Service Excellence Awards. These awards are the world’s peak customer service awards with organizations and individuals that excel in service around the globe being nominated in a variety of categories to recognize their commitment to customer service excellence.
Christine Churchill, Executive Director, Customer Service Institute of America and Vice President of the International Council of Customer Service Organizations, is feeling reinvigorated after the 2013 awards judging. “While we have many organizations that have won an International Service Excellence Award previously still guiding the way and setting benchmarks, we are excited by some of our new winners and the submissions received in 2013. The competition is heating up and organizations globally are serious about service.”
The judging criteria for the International Service Excellence Awards is based on the rigorous International Customer Service Standard (ICSS), which provides a comprehensive and practical framework to assist organizations in delivering consistently high levels of service. Organizations applying in each of the award categories are asked to demonstrate the following to the award judges:
1. An approach to each of the attributes outlined in the International Customer Service Standard
2. The breadth and depth of the deployment of each approach
3. Results flowing from the approach and deployment
4. The level of customer involvement in the strategic decision making of the organization
5. Evidence of continuous review and improvement against the ICSS criteria
