HUD Louisville Office Celebrates Customer Service Successes
The HUD Louisville Office recently held its third "Customer Service Person of the Quarter" celebration. Jenna Schmidt, Public Housing Clerk, was selected as the "Customer Service Person of the Quarter" for her outstanding service to HUD's external customers and public housing authorities. Jinger Coffelt, Computer Specialist, was selected as the internal "Customer Service Person of the Quarter" for being both a supporter and leader in customer service.
The Louisville Office launched the "Customer Service Person of the Quarter" recognition program during its first Customer Service Week. During that week, Louisville staff participated in various activities designed to improve morale, encourage teamwork, and to generate a stronger commitment to customer service excellence. Regional Director Brian E. Noyes was the featured speaker during the Customer Service Week kick-off.
Prior to Customer Service Week and the implementation of the recognition program, the Louisville Office surveyed Kentucky mayors, community development agencies, public housing/Section 8 agencies, multifamily housing agents/owners, non-profit organizations, and fair housing organizations to determine their satisfaction with the service provided by the staff of the Louisville Office.
Eight months later, the same partners were surveyed using the same survey. The survey results overwhelmingly reflected that customer satisfaction has significantly increased. There were increases in the highest rating possible in 16 of 17 questions. There was at least a 10% increase in the highest rating possible for 9 of the 17 questions. See the table below for result samples.
