Customer Service in a Service Organization: Why don’t they “get” it?

By: Ann Middleman,  Principal,  ADM Marketing & Research Consulting,  Westbury NY and past president IABC Long Island

Most businesspeople have acknowledged, by now, the importance of customer service. While Randi Busse of Workforce Development Group could tell you more, it seems to me there are two huge benefits to providing good customer service.

  • Good customer service yields repeat business. Even when there’s a problem, people are usually forgiving when they perceive that someone is listening, and trying to make it right. They will then continue to buy that brand.
  • Happy customers are your best salespeople.  This is even more true in the age of social media and “word-of-mouth marketing” on steroids. The converse is true as well: unhappy customers are your worst nightmare.

Consequently, the return on investment in customer service is significant. As true as this is for manufacturers, or “product” companies, it is even truer for service providers. Makers and distributors of products have something tangible to sell; service providers have ONLY service. So it amazes me that so many service providers are so clueless about customer service.

I recently had three incidents with service providers that made me wonder who was running those companies, and why they seem to take a penny-wise-and-pound-foolish approach to their customers.

  • My oil burner went out when the temperature outside was 11 degrees. It took the service person 16 hours to get to us, and when he arrived, he complained to us of his long work day. I asked him why the company didn’t staff up (which seems perfectly logical to me) during the cold weather, when any child would realize there would be more service calls. He gave me some “party line” answers, and then revealed the real reason. The company is unionized. It is in their interest to keep the staff lean so they can get overtime.  And management doesn’t mind because it saves them money.
  • We went to Florida on our annual trip to visit relatives and friends, and reserved a car at Budget. Again, it was a busy season for rental cars in Florida. We arrived at the desk, paperwork in hand, only to find 5 out of 10 stations staffed. The line was long, and got longer while we waited. And then one rep left (either it was her break or her shift ended), which screamed “I really don’t care at all if you are inconvenienced.”  Finally, it was our turn. I didn’t ask the representative why the counter was so understaffed because I didn’t expect him to have an answer.  I concluded that (a) management doesn’t want to spend the money to staff up for busy times even if it turns some people off; or (b) they can’t get people to work for them because they don’t pay well or don’t treat their people well. Either way, this is short-sighted management.
  • We finally arrived at our timeshare—a Wyndham property—at the stated check-in time, but the room was not ready. Again, we waited about a half hour, as did several other people. We were given no explanation. When we got to our building, there were no available trolleys to take our things up to the room at first, but then a staff member found one for us (kudos to him!!). We loaded it up and attempted to bring it up to the room, but the elevator went out. We walked to the other end of the building to get another elevator, which turned out to be too short for the trolley. Finally, we settled in, when another couple opened our door, thinking it was theirs. We then discovered that OUR key cards no longer worked. The front desk had invalidated our keys and given the room to someone else! We went back to the check-in office and cleared it up. Once again, management is far more concerned with the short-term bottom line than with building the business, a more long-term strategy. And then they want us to come to an “owners meeting,” which is a euphemism for a sales pitch. I don’t think so.

Service businesses are labor intensive, and the margins can be slim. I’ve worked in two such businesses, and I understand the concern with margins, as they support administrative and marketing staffs, as well as facility maintenance and improvement (where applicable) and of course investor return. However, such short-sighted management often leads to deterioration of the brand, and ultimately, the company itself. A more long-term strategy tends to result in brand-building and greater demand; and therefore, larger profits. In this era of social media, when brands can be “slammed” on Facebook or Twitter in an instant, paying attention to customers and keeping them happy has never been more true.

Member Spotlight: Debra Scala Giokas

Debra Scala Giokas began her life as a stoop girl in Astoria, Queens until her family moved to “the country” when she was nine. In between playing stickball, riding her bike on the sidewalk, and visiting her grandparents for pasta dinners every Sunday, she discovered her love of words. She began writing poems in second grade and would send homemade cards to family and friends. Her first poetry recital in the second grade was in front of 500 people at the St. Joseph Elementary School’s St. Patrick’s Day Celebration. The poem: “It Ain’t Easy Being Green.”

Words continued to serve her well, and so did Long Island. She earned her Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude, in English from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and her Master of Business Administration from Dowling College where she taught a course in services marketing for six years as an Adjunct Assistant Professor.

After working at 17 different part-time jobs including cashier, salesperson, waitress, bank teller, customer service representative and gym receptionist, to name a few, from the age of 17 until 21, she began her legal marketing career in 1990. She has been in her present role as Director of Marketing at Certilman Balin Adler & Hyman, LLP for the past 15 years. Certilman Balin is Long Island’s second largest law firm with 14 areas of practice and offices in both Nassau and Suffolk counties.

She has been a long-time member of IABC, has served on its board, and in 2004 was honored with the Achievement in Communications Award.

Debra’s love of words actually helped her to find love, too. In 2008, she married George Giokas, a journalist and entrepreneur. The two even enjoy editing each other’s works. George has a book forthcoming in the spring, entitled, Nickel Ice. As for Debra, she has been revisiting her first love, poetry. Her poems have appeared in the Great South Bay Magazine, Dan’s Papers, The Montauk Sun, BACCA’s “Writer’s Space,” and The Path. She is working on a collection of 50 poems on 50 places in the United States.

She manages her firm’s social media, and also has her own Twitter account. If you’re interested in matters of communication (especially literature), follow her on Twitter @debrascalag.

Member Spotlight: Kali Chan

1. What is your favorite thing about being a corporate communications professional?
Searching for the next big news item.

Every brand has its own story to tell. As PR/communications professionals, we get to help clients discover and tell the stories. Then, convince media that the story is worth telling. My job is to also create an agenda or strategy to find what I call reputation-defining stories. Highlight students who are having powerful Adelphi experiences and celebrate faculty and alumni accomplishments and promote their expertise. Additionally, I enjoy coordinating event photography and serving as art director for various editorial shoots and campaigns.

I’ve been able to advance Adelphi’s reputation through media placements, including in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Newsday, and New York Times, to name a few. I’ve had media placements on bullying, autism, gun violence, emergency preparedness, international crisis, food inequality, healthcare, environment, women’s issues, and the national debt and economy, etc.

2. What was your “big break?”
Early in my career, I served as the assistant to the executive director for the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce. At the forefront of many new ideas, I initiated design of a marketing brochure and guidebook, with the collaboration of two Village historians and Town of Brookhaven Economic Development representative, and was instrumental in forming new partnerships with SCORE, LIA, and The New York State Small Business Development Center. I represented the chamber at village and town meetings and reported updates to the board. This position provided a glimpse into event planning, marketing and journalism.

Prior to coming to Adelphi, I was the assistant director of communications and special events for Girl Scouts of Suffolk County, the largest youth-serving agency on Long Island. One of the best decisions (and my “big break”) that I made for myself was to accept the job. During my five year career at the nonprofit, I was responsible for public relations, marketing, special events, fundraising, graphic design, and photography. I coordinated publicity events, including activities for a memorable 3-hour event at Madison Square Garden celebrating the 90th anniversary of girl scouting. I prepared, wrote, and secured grants from corporations and all levels of government. Helped design, edit, and coordinate production of 10 agency publications and served as the main photographer for all major council events.

Next, I sought out new opportunities for a communications position to expand upon my PR skills and have the chance to work with national media. To really challenge myself.

PR is the aspect of the job that I enjoyed the most and gave me the greatest satisfaction. I joined Adelphi University in January 2005 and currently serve as director of media relations. As director, I’m charged with developing, executing, and managing university-wide media relations activities for the eight schools, centers, and programs. My job is to articulate why the institution is a place that matters.

3. Why is the IABC chapter a valued organization for you?
It’s where connections are made. IABC is an organization where you can acquire new skills, new knowledge and new insights into the industry.

4. What advice would you give a corporate communications professional just starting out?
Be open to the opportunities that come your way even if they might make you nervous or scare you. Be eager to learn about things that are not immediately within your job responsibilities. Go the extra mile. Be curious. Network and get involved in professional groups.

Keep your finger on the pulse of the media. Embrace all of the free online resources at your fingertips. From websites to blogs to tweetchats, and everything in between.

5. What is your biggest accomplishment?
At Adelphi, I treasure my opportunity to Influence and mentor young people and to encourage their interest in public relations and the communications field. I’ve mentored students and successfully supported their applications to highly competitive graduate programs, internships, or full-time employment. Adelphi has made student success a priority and I share the commitment to their personal success. I feel great pride in helping them make the transition from the classroom to a career.

6. If you could choose one person in the world to have dinner with who would it be?
Charles Osgood. I’m a fan of CBS News Sunday Morning.

7. Who was the biggest influence in your personal/professional life?
I have been lucky in life to form many meaningful personal and professional relationships. I try to surround myself with people who not only work hard but have good character, integrity, and are passionate. These are the positive traits that draw me to other people.

8. What profession would you NEVER want to do?
Accounting. Almost made the mistake. I entered college as an accounting major.

9. What is your favorite place on Long Island?
Huntington and Montauk.

10. How would you improve Long Island?
There is a dramatic need for affordable housing. Affordable housing leads to better quality of life and a stronger community. An alarming high number of young adults plan to leave Long Island. We need to recognize the importance of keeping young people in the region for the growth of our future labor force.

11. What is your guilty pleasure?
I have a real weakness for chocolate; anything sweet.

12. What is your best way to unwind/distress?
Eating dinner in a nice restaurant with my boyfriend. Try not to bring work home.

13. How do you stay organized?
Efficiency and productivity are keys for success. I have a ritual. I make a list of my worries in my Droid before I go to bed and what I’ll tackle tomorrow.

14. What are your hobbies/interests outside of work?
Volunteering. I’m active in Public Relations Professionals of Long Island and serve on the board as First Vice President. I believe it’s important to give back and serve on Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s walkathon committee. The fundraiser provides programming opportunities that focus on all areas of health, fitness, nutrition, self-esteem, and relationships for young women. I’ve also helped the University make Relay for Life, which benefits the American Cancer Society a success. The past three years, I’ve pledged to walk and donate my hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths, a program that makes free wigs for women with cancer. I plan to keep donating. Hobbs Farm in Centereach which grows food and donates it to food pantries. And, Island Harvest, the largest hunger relief organization on Long Island.

15. What is the best or worst decision you have made (personally or professionally)?
I take a great deal of pride in my work and am committed to producing the highest quality work I can. Being active in professional organizations like PRPLI and IABC-LI are critical to advancing career goals, enhancing the network, broadening knowledge in the communications field; demonstrating dedication to staying in the profession, etc.

16. What are some of your “life rules?”
If you do not go after what you want, you will never have it.

Nurture and treasure your friends and family members. Kindness towards others tends to be rewarded.

17. What is your secret talent?
Finding unique, inexpensive vacation destinations. Recent trips include Lake Tobias Wildlife Park in Halifax, PA and National Watch & Clock Museum in Columbia, PA.

18. What book are you currently reading/last book you read?
I’m a news junkie. As PR professionals, we have to stay on top of the news and what’s important to journalists. I read many daily newspapers, tweets, and a number of publications such as Chronicle of Higher Education, Adweek and Crain’s New York.

19. Do you have a mentor? What words of wisdom did s/he share with you?
The mentors in my career have been the people that inspired me with their drive, ideas, and how they work with other individuals. For example, Lori Duggan Gold, Vice President for Communications at Adelphi. In addition to working with reporters and internal clients on positive stories, I’m also involved in addressing more sensitive issues, including ones concerning campus safety and security. Through trainings and reporting to her, I’ve learned to trust my gut and act quickly. Anything that goes wrong has the potential to become a news story.

20. What is your dream job?
A results oriented company where my ideas and my power to inspire are valued. A place with growth, lots of energy and activity, and where colleagues work closely to solve problems. Adelphi University.
