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 recognized as the premier service awards around the globe. Organizations and individuals that excel in service excellence compete in a variety of categories to recognize their commitment to customer service excellence.
The judging criteria for the International Service Excellence Awards is aligned with the International Customer Service Standard (ICSS), which provides a comprehensive and practical framework to assist organizations in delivering consistently high levels of service. This standard, based on the balanced scorecard methodology, reviews organizations to determine if the customer is the focus of the business and how that is supported through culture, processes, procedures, training, hiring practices, and daily actions.
“Year over year, we see competition accelerating and our winners need to excel in various delivery channels in order to meet the needs of today’s educated and “wired” consumer. Additionally, winning organizations need to think “ahead” of their customer and provide innovative solutions before the customer is even looking for them” – Christine Churchill, Managing Director, Customer Service Institute of America
The 2017 International Service Excellence Awards recognize organizations and individuals for their commitment to excellence in service.
