Search for UK’s customer service champions
Competition to celebrate businesses that always put the customer first
The Institute of Customer Service has launched a competition to find the UK’s customer services champions.
One winner will be chosen from each of the nine different UK regions represented by the Institute, with local winners going forward for the national competition.
Institute CEO Jo Causon said: “We want nominations for people who go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to customer service – people who don’t think twice about going the extra mile.”
Nominations can come from employers, colleagues or customers by visiting www.nationalcustomerserviceweek.com
A regional winner will be chosen from the East Midlands, Ireland and Scotland, London and East, London and South East, the North East, the North West, the South, Wales and West and the West Midlands. A national Customer Champion will then be crowned.
Closing date for nominations is August 31 and winners will be announced during the Institute’s National Customer Service Week, which takes place from October 4 to 10.
Regional winners will receive a choice of experience gifts up to the value of £150, while the person who nominated them will be given £50 shopping vouchers. The overall national champion will be treated to a weekend break.
