Business awards a time for Gladstone to shine
THE Gladstone Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc is proud to be a part of the 2014 Best in Business Awards presented by The Gladstone Observer in conjunction with Westpac.
The awards are an important event for the community, as we shine a light on local businesses that are exceeding expectations.
To be nominated by a customer or colleague for any Best in Business award should be viewed as the highest compliment.
In particular, GCCI are sponsoring the Customer Service Award, which recognises businesses that deliver outstanding service.
The chamber values this award highly as we believe that prioritising your customers above all other things in your business is critical; without customers, your business will not survive.
As this is a highly valued aspect of any business, the chamber offers members one on one customer service training.
From the courses that are currently in place, we have been receiving a lot of positive feedback, with members saying that "you have changed the way we do business" and "we now think about the customer before we do anything else".
Events such as these play a critical role in our Buy Local campaign.
Nominating a local business for an award grants them the recognition they deserve and focuses on the great work of small businesses in the Gladstone Region.
For more information on how we can provide our GCCI members with one-on-one customer service training, please contact the chamber.
You never know, it could put you in the running for next year's Best in Business Customer Service Award.
