GREENWICH, Conn. – Family Centers recognized five employees for customer service excellence at its employee-wide town hall meeting.
For consistently embodying Family Centers' core values and providing exceptional service to both internal and external customers, finance accounting associate Tracey Eckert, Stamford CARES medical case manager Roberta Wilks, literacy volunteers student data coordinator and head teacher Fabiana Marin and office manager Nidia Silva were named Family Centers' 2016 Customer Service Ambassadors.
As part of an agency-wide customer service initiative called CSI:FC (Customer Service Initiative: Family Centers), the annual Customer Service Ambassador Award honors employees who go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure customer needs are met. Winners were nominated by fellow Family Centers employees.
"CSI:FC has had a profound impact on our agency culture since it launched last year," said President Bob Arnold. "Our Customer Service Ambassadors' positive approach and consistent use of Family Centers' standards of excellence inspires us all."
Established in 2011, CSI:FC is based on seven standards of excellence, which incorporate Family Centers' organizational value statement and provides employees with guidelines that should be considered when working with customers.
