Kennedy Uzoka, Group Managing Director/Chief Executive of the United Bank for Africa Plc, on Tuesday, noted the need for staff to pursue excellent service delivery, being an essential ingredient for ensuring customer satisfaction.
In a message to mark the 2020 Customer Service Week, Uzoka also expressed appreciation to staff who work tirelessly to satisfy their customers, urging them not to relent.
The Customer Service Week, which is celebrated annually all over the world, recognises the importance of customer service and seeks to show appreciation to the staff who serve and support customers with the highest degree of care and professionalism.
The theme for this year’s celebrations is ‘Dream Team’ and embodies the core values of the bank – the 3Es which stand for Excellence, Enterprise, and Execution which is achievable when an institution genuinely cares about the customers.
A statement by the group quoted the GMD as noting that ”now more than ever, we have discovered things that truly matter, and it has taken the utmost dedication and commitment of all of us to stay resilient even when it seemed like everything was falling apart.
“From colleagues who had to show up at work to make sure our services continued to run, to staff who worked remotely, delivering excellent service to the best of their ability, it has taken great grit to get us here today. It is commendable to see the power of people committed to succeeding.
“As we celebrate this year’s Customer Service Week, I would like to express my gratitude to you all for the journey so far. Most especially, I would like us to keep focused on and dedicated to delivering excellence to our customers who have stayed loyal to the team. They are the real MVPs that keep us going strong ” Uzoka noted.
