WABAN, Mass., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Temkin Group, a leading market research and consulting firm that helps organizations improve their customer experience, announced that it has launched the Customer Experience Excellence (CE2) Awards. These awards recognize organizations for their efforts in becoming more customer-centric.
Across all industries and sectors, organizations are finding ways to improve customer experience in a sustainable manner. The CE2 Awards are meant to highlight those transformational efforts. Since customer experience is a journey, not a program, nominees will not need to have fully completed their journey to be eligible for this award.
"While most companies are in the early stages of their customer experience journeys, many have made substantial progress. We expect to receive many strong nominations," states Bruce Temkin, Managing Partner of Temkin Group.
Nominations will be accepted through December 14, 2012. Submission forms can be downloaded from the Customer Experience Matters® blog (ExperienceMatters.wordpress.com). Winners will be announced on January 15, 2013.
The CE2 Awards will be judged by a panel of industry experts that understand what it takes for an organization to become more customer-centric:
- Shep Hyken is the Chief Amazement Officer at Shepard Presentations. He is a customer service expert, speaker and author of New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling books including The Cult of the Customer and The Amazement Revolution.
- Ingrid Lindberg is Customer Experience Officer at Prime Therapeutics. She is a proven change management and customer strategy executive whose previous roles include Customer Experience Officer at CIGNA and Chief Marketing Officer at Ceridian Benefits Services.
