#CustServ Executive Briefing

#CustServ The Customer Service Culture

Executive Briefing

Chances are good your mission statement has something reflecting the importance of the customer. Does your business have a customer service culture or (only) a department?

#CustServ Business Team


Why this matters now more than ever:

Organizations compete every day for customers, sales, and market share. What sets them apart?

In a fast paced, high output, and the lowest price wins economy that is positioned to erupt with new opportunities there is only one answer, exceptional service.

Successful organizations recognize that what happens internally builds the foundation for what happens externally. Now, more than ever before, the most important thing that will make a difference in the experience for your customer is your culture.

Doesn’t price, value, and quality make a difference?

Organizations lacking the expertise or proper culture are forced to compete on price. Competing on price results in the lowest price winning—until it doesn’t. Then everything changes.

Customer service has never been more important and the expectations never more profound. One customer buys based on price, another buys based on value. Only one of them will be loyal.

Your employee teams will make a difference, or not. It is important to lead the way because if you choose to follow the best you can hope for is to be number two.

Team #CustServ


We have already spent a lot of time on customer service and we have people in place to safeguard our reputation and to protect our brand promise, do we really need this?

Customer service is not rocket science, but to be exceptional it requires practice. Employees at any level of the organization may completely understand the principles of exceptional service but the question we should all ask is, “Do they practice it?”

Having a culture of customer service means that the practice of customer service starts within the organization, then it is transferred externally through each and every transaction or touch point. Think of it this way, internal organization dynamics set external tone. Culture isn’t about policies or procedures, or even about a designated department. It is about a holistic philosophy of both internal and external service.

After all, you’re all in it together.
