Contact Center celebrates the magic of excellent customer service during Employee Appreciation Week

Working in the Kelsey-Seybold Contact Center takes a special blend of skills, abilities, and attitudes. Every team member works toward a common goal: to provide excellent customer service 24/7, 365 days a year. Their hard work and dedication to assisting patients was celebrated during the Contact’s Center’s 12th annual Employee Appreciation Week held Oct. 7 – 11.

“Our Contact Center employees are critical to Kelsey-Seybold’s success. They’re typically the first point of contact for many of our patients – a crucial first impression that sets the stage for patient engagement with our organization,” said Sabine Harrison, Contact Center Director. “The Contact Center leadership team wants to make sure our employees understand how important they are to us. That’s what makes this week’s celebrations so special.”

To help recognize this vital group of employees, the Contact Center leadership team, along with the Special Events Committee, worked together to plan fun events and activities throughout the week, such as a special recognition board, raffle prizes, crossword puzzles and word scrambles, team-building activities, as well as special treats throughout the week including popcorn, candy, and pizza!
