The International Customer Service Association started Customer Service Week in 1984 to take time to recognize the great people who deliver great service and value to their customers. In 1992, President George Bush signed a proclamation that stated:
“A business will do a better job of providing high-quality goods and services by listening to its employees and by empowering them with opportunities to make a difference” (source)
Customer Service Week is an international celebration of the importance of customer service and of
The People who serve
and support customers on a daily basis.
I am one of those people who serve and support, and my company participated in Customer Service Week again in 2017.
Monday, October 2
was “Be Proud of Your Selfie” Day.
The idea was to dress up in your workday best and make use of the photo booth.Okay so I wasn’t in my workday best. LB and I had delighted in a four day vacation and returned home just hours before. Obviously I completely forgot about Customer Service Week. In this picture I am styling my new Hall & Oates tee shirt because I was too tired to put a decent work place outfit together. As it turned out, the week would be laden with tee shirts, so this one was appropriate enough.
Tuesday, October 3
was “Be Proud of the Brand” Day.
Wednesday, October 4
was Appreciation Lunch Day.
The company arranged a complementary lunch for everyone. Each team was provided a platter of sandwiches. In addition, we took the opportunity to participate in Breast Cancer Awareness Month by donning pink clothing, ribbon pins, etc. I posted about it here.
Thursday, October 5
was Team Tailgate Day.
The idea was to wear a shirt or jersey representing a favorite sports team.
The picture was just weird.
I Can’t Even.
Friday, October 6
was Entertainment Proud Day.
Time to go on another diet.
