Nominations for the 2019 CustomerCount Customer Engagement Professional Resort Trades Award officially opened September 2, 2019 and will be open until December 31, 2019. The winner will be announced in March of 2020.
Distinguished Panel Will Review Blind Entries
The judges will select the most valuable customer engagement professional within the timeshare resort/hospitality industry based on online nomination surveys designed to measure the nominee’s qualifications numerically and narratively. The survey is powered by CustomerCount’s software. Judges will make their assessments in a blind judging process, without knowledge of the individual or their company.
The award, in its fourth year, recognizes outstanding leaders who exemplify customer engagement within the timeshare resort/hospitality industry. Qualified people most likely will be resort managers, assistant managers, front desk folks and customer service team members who are in daily contact with members and guests.
These outstanding team members exemplify the highest standards in customer engagement and service. Judges will review data entered numerically in specific categories of customer and/or member engagement including on-site rating improvements and social media mentions and reviews. Along with the quantitative data narrative descriptions with anecdotes and stories to support the nomination will also be taken into strong consideration.
The winning customer engagement professional and their company/resort will be profiled in the March issue of Resort Trades. Two trophies will be presented; one for the company and one for the individual CEP.
