first_imgIn today’s challenging trading environment, simply meeting customers’ expectations is not enough – we need to surpass them,” says John Lindsay, who is country manager and business unit director at BakeMark UK.This is why the company is once again proud to sponsor The Customer Focus Award, which aims to find the most customer-orientated bakery businesses in the country. Open to bakeries of all sizes, including craft, in-store bakeries and industrial manufacturers, the award recognises those companies that take customer service and support to a new level. It is not necessary to be a BakeMark UK customer to enter this award.Lindsay states that he expects the independent judges to be looking for companies that have an excellent understanding of their customers’ needs and requirements, and are willing to go the extra mile to satisfy them. Swift solutions to their customers’ problems or adapting to issues that might arise are important requirements for businesses that take customer support seriously.Successful entries should be backed up by examples of excellent customer service. This could be researching customers’ markets to come up with new products and services, making improvements to staff training or regular customer feedback questionnaires, which are used to develop the business. Whatever approach you take to putting the customer first, BakeMark UK wants to hear about it.”This award recognises the huge effort made by all types of bakery companies to find new ways of improving levels of customer service.

Utilizing public relations to promote community service

first_img 52SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Patti Hazlett As Director of Corporate Communications for the Mountain West Credit Union Association, Patti oversees all aspects of public affairs and communications for the Association and member credit unions. She is … Web: https://mwcua.com Details Every credit union does tremendous work in its community. The efforts are genuine and tied to the mission of credit unions – people helping people. While no credit union engaged in this type of activity is doing it with a goal of self-promotion, there can be some benefit to letting those outside the reach of the credit union know about your work.When credit unions get involved in their community, people benefit. From fundraising to service projects to providing financial education, community members are well served when credit unions are active. For example, a community experiences a natural disaster, such as a fire or a flood. Recovery and relief activities can include a credit union taking donations or coordinating efforts for financial assistance. When those functions are publicized, through media relations and social media promotion, the impact on the fundraising efforts can be strong, increasing the reach and potentially, the amount of money raised to help the community.Another example is when credit unions get involved in efforts to help during things like back to school. Many credit unions are tied to school systems, so it is a natural extension of their mission to help gather school supplies and backpacks for children in their community. When a credit union gets the word out beyond its membership, donations increase, and there is the potential to gain new members. Financial education, a driving principle of a credit union’s purpose, is a strong gateway to the community. When a credit union provides services such as budget planning, financial education and even things like reality fairs – experiencing real-world scenarios like poverty simulations and budgeting for everyday living – it is a way to reach people in the community who may have never heard about a credit union or know what the difference is in having a credit union membership.When a credit union’s community efforts strike a chord with people within that community, a door is opened. There is an opportunity to educate those who may not know what a credit union is, to talk about the benefits of becoming a member of a credit union, to highlight those services within the credit union that could possibly help serve the needs of potential members. Public relations and social media efforts provide simple tools to help get the word out to both your existing membership, as well as others in your community who might resonate with the activity you are promoting. Encouraging members to share your social media posts is a simple way to organically spread the word about your efforts. Working with your Association’s public relations resources can provide you with tools that can get the word out to local media to promote your programs.When credit unions take the time to tell their story, many people benefit.last_img read more

Little things matter

If I can automate a task, that’s a win.Here’s a great story about one of my utilities.I signed up to pay them automatically each month from my checking account.  But there was a rub.Each month, they would send me an email saying a payment was due. But I never could remember if I was on autopayment, so I’d have to dig into the account to confirm. That almost defeated the purpose.

Grateful for free CPR training in Princetown

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion A Princetown resident and emergency medical physician, Dr. Greer Pomeroy, wanted to provide CPR training at no cost to her neighbors and fellow residents. She knows how important this training can be.When she contacted Mohawk Ambulance to get a price for such a project, Mohawk said that they would provide the training, the equipment, and the course material at no charge.You see, Dr. Pomeroy has trained so many paramedics over the years, Jeff Williams and others at Mohawk wanted to “pay it forward” as a thank you to Dr. Pomeroy. Jeff said that Doc Pomeroy has made an enormous difference by taking a tough stand on paramedics and making sure they knew their stuff before treating people. I know this to be true personally, as Dr. Pomeroy was one of my instructors when I trained to become a paramedic.Out of such great respect for a former teacher, Jeff wanted to honor her by providing her community with free CPR classes. Wow. We don’t see much of that great attitude today — private industry and private citizens working together for the absolute good of the community, neither with any selfish motivation. Kudos.Lots of people in our small country town learned CPR, the Heimlich maneuver, and how to operate an automatic external defibrillator (AEG). They were able to do it at zero cost to themselves.Sometimes Princetown is referred to as the “Mayberry of Schenectady County.” I actually like that comparison. Where else does stuff like this happen?Our special thanks to Mohawk Ambulance and the instructors: Jeff Williams, Ed Marchand, Tyler Freemantle, Christina Marilla, Emily Peters, Cole Mathews and Bob Panarese.My wife and I attended one of the three days of training provided by Mohawk. The classes were wonderful, and I have been getting lots of very positive feedback from residents.

Tens of thousands rally against Belarus strongman

first_imgHuge crowds of Belarusian protesters on Sunday flooded the capital Minsk, urging strongman Alexander Lukashenko to quit power, defying the threat of arrest and a massive deployment of forces.More than 100,000 people are estimated to have taken to the streets of the capital Minsk over the past three weekends and AFP journalists said the crowds in Minsk might have been even larger on Sunday.Troops, water cannon, armored personnel carriers and armored reconnaissance vehicles were deployed to the city center but protesters from all walks of life — from parents with children to students and even priests– rallied in a show of defiance. “I am convinced that protests will continue until we win.”Unprecedented demonstrations broke out after Lukashenko, who has ruled the ex-Soviet state for 26 years, claimed re-election with 80 percent of the vote on August 9.Opposition rival Svetlana Tikhanovskaya says she won the vote but Lukashenko’s security forces have detained thousands of protesters, many of whom accused police of beatings and torture. Several people have died during the crackdown.Tikhanovskaya left Belarus under pressure from authorities and took shelter in EU member Lithuania. ‘Tough nut’ Putin has been keen to unify Russia and Belarus, and Moscow has accompanied its recent offers of military aid with calls for tighter integration. Lukashenko has in the past ruled out outright unification and sought to play Moscow off against the West, but his options are now limited.On Thursday, Lukashenko hosted Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and said the two countries had managed to agree on issues they “could not agree earlier”.The mustachioed leader said he planned to “dot all the i’s” with Putin in Moscow in the next few weeks.Lukashenko made headlines this week when he claimed that his security forces had intercepted German calls showing that Navalny’s poisoning had been faked.Belarusian state television broadcast the “intercept” in which a Mike in Warsaw and Nick in Berlin discuss Navalny’s materials and call Lukashenko a “tough nut to crack.”Lukashenko also raised eyebrows last month when he brandished an assault rifle and had his 16-year-old son Nikolai appear next to him in a bulletproof vest while also wielding a weapon.Topics : ‘Honest elections’ Belarusians have been demonstrating across the country for nearly a month even though the protest movement lacks a clear leader, with many activists jailed or forced out of the country.On Sunday, the protesters marched towards Lukashenko’s residence at the Independence Palace where they chanted “Tribunal” and “How much are you getting paid?” One protester held a portrait of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny who Germany says has been poisoned with a Novichok nerve agent”Please only live,” said the placard, referring to President Vladimir Putin’s main political rival. Navalny has been in a coma for the past two weeks after he drank what his aides suspect was a cup of poisoned tea in Siberia.”Sasha, have some tea. It’s Putin’s treat,” some protesters chanted, referring to Lukashenko by his diminutive name.Many say they will keep taking to the streets until Lukashenko quits.”Lukashenko must go,” said Nikolai Dyatlov, a 32-year-old protester.Another protester, 40-year-old Anastasia Bazarevich, said: “Half of the village where my grandma lives comes out and protests every night.”Russia has said it will respond to any Western attempts to “sway the situation” and Putin has raised the possibility of sending military support.As demonstrators gradually dispersed later Sunday, images showed hooded men in civilian clothes with batons chasing and beating demonstrators. Around 250 people were arrested nationwide including 175 in Minsk, according to the Viasna rights group.An interior ministry spokesperson refused to confirm the figures.Many protesters held red-and-white flags and placards while a band beat drums and played other instruments. “Despite rain and pressure from the authorities, despite repression, many more people turned up in Minsk than last Sunday,” top opposition figure Maria Kolesnikova told reporters.last_img read more
