This year, Customer Service Week is October 1-5, and it will be here before you know it! The summer is flying by and because Customer Service Week is the first full week of October, it has a habit of sneaking up on us!
We have two new themes for Customer Service Week 2012 that provide great gifts and supplies for your celebration. You Rock is my personal favorite because the theme includes several fun and low cost gifts for your team. You can give employees a small gift every day of Customer Service Week. For example, the Give ‘Em a Hand Pens can be the gift on Monday, and you can end the week with the You Rock Lollipop. Use the Tokens of Appreciation throughout the week as part of an ongoing game or competition. Plus, this theme easily lends itself to a myriad of activities. You can play Rock Band, host a karaoke or lip sync contest, play rock and roll trivia, and much more!
Also new for Customer Service Week 2012 is our star-filled We Appreciate You theme. This is a great theme because it clearly expresses appreciation for your team – the objective of Customer Service Week! Start the week by giving each member of your team the themed Twist Top Tumbler with a personal thank you note tucked inside that identifies their special contributions.
