24 Mission Statement from 4 CS The California Community Colleges Classified Senate (4CS), constituted as a voluntary membership body of appropriately recognized shared governance bodies, colleges, and districts which recognizes the value of higher education in the state of California, sees its mission as: Providing quality service to promote student success RD

25 Guidelines and Criteria of California Community Colleges Classified Employees of the Year The following guidelines are to be used in making the selection of nominees and finalists. 1.

26 Customer Service Isn’t “Rocket Science” Revco/CVS Drug Stores instituted a customer service improvement program based on the slogan, "Every customer, every time." In order to make this slogan come to life, they asked themselves, "What do we want to happen to every customer every time in order to promote good customer service?" The whole process was distilled down to three behaviors that Revco thought everyone could deliver: 1. Greet customers every time they enter the store. 2. Every time a salesperson sees a customer searching for a product, the employee asks the customers if they need assistance. 3. Make eye contact with customers every time you speak to them. “Do what you do so well that they will want to see it again and bring their friends.” WALT DISNEY MW

27 Customer Service Isn’t “Rocket Science” Next, Revco/CVS set about measuring how well the standards were being implemented. They sent paid "mystery shoppers" into the stores to check for the use of the three behaviors. The shoppers reported compliance about 90% of the time. Revco/CVS also measured whether the number of complaints to their customer service representatives rose or fell, and found that they were falling, while a number of comments from satisfied customers went up. From these measurements, the program was deemed a success. "Every customer, every time" became more than a slogan; it became a way of doing business because the service standards were specifically stated and then measured on a regular basis. Each store manager was responsible for reinforcing the specific service standards in his or her employees. “Customer service is not a department, it's an attitude! “ UNKNOWN MW

28 STUDENT SERVICES SATISFACTION SURVEY RESULTS (E.G.) 98 % of students responded positively when asked if Student Services personnel were courteous and helpful. 98% of students responded positively when asked if information was clearly explained by Student Services staff. 97% of students said that they would refer others to our services. 100% of responses regarding Health/Psychological Services were positive.
