Letters From Leton: Customer Service Is Sweet!

We all take pride and satisfaction in taking care of customers.

Helping them buy a house? Big adrenaline rush!

Moving that large commercial checking account and loan? Let’s party!

But what about the little things?

How about resetting an online banking account or fixing a debit card issue at a person’s local office?

Or unlocking a fellow employee’s computer so they can get to work?

One Friday working in Wise, I noticed a few items behind the teller line. When I asked about the items I was told that they were a gift from a customer who was having a hard time finding a check that had posted against their account.

Just one check. Didn’t create an overdraft or anything bad – they just needed information on the one check.

Our staff helped out, found the item, and the customer was happy. We probably do things like this hundreds of times a week in our offices – just good, basic customer care and service.

It is always nice to be thanked for what you do. Sometimes it’s even nicer when it is a simple thing. Or thanks not just for “one check” but for months and years of plain old good customer service with a friendly smile in your voice.

Customer Service can be Sweet!!
