The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top sales awards, contact center awards, and customer service awards. The Stevie Awards organizes several of the world’s leading business awards shows including the prestigious American Business AwardsSM and International Business AwardsSM.
More than 1,100 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted to this year’s competition, an increase of 10 percent over 2012. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 120 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges. Entries were considered in 30 categories for customer service professionals. More than 100 members of eight specialized judging committees determined Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging this year.
Parker oversees Safelite’s Las Vegas market, which includes six locations and approximately 60 employees. For the last three years, his market has ranked among the top three markets for customer satisfaction scores.
Safelite® uses the Net Promoter Scores (NPS) method to measure customer satisfaction. Parker’s market has continually improved its NPS, and also is consistently above the company-wide average.
“From our perspective this was the most successful Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service yet,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “Not just because of the increase in the number and variety of entries, but in the extraordinary quality of the entries. Judges have told me how impressed they were with the success stories they reviewed this year. All of this year’s Stevie Award winners are truly deserving.”
