The 2019 International Service Excellence Awards celebrate organizations and individuals for their commitment to service excellence
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 earn recognition for their commitment to exceptional service experiences.
“ International Service Excellence Award winners are never satisfied with “near enough as good enough” when it comes to their customers. They work to provide solutions and innovations that make their customers’ lives easier,”
– Founder and CEO, Christine Churchill
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.
