A Customer Service Lesson from Comcast and a Software Called Hively

The bad customer service call between former Engadget editor and gdgt co-founder Ryan Block and Comcast that went viral is STILL in the news. This time, Comcast is taking some of the blame for the way in which they train their specialists:

“We will review our training programs, we will refresh our manager on coaching for quality, and we will take a look at our incentives to ensure we are rewarding employees or the right behaviors. We can, and will, do better.”

Finding instances of your employees doing wrong is a cinch, especially if you’re Comcast. Just have your social media specialist show you how to log in to various social media platforms and watch the complaints roll in. The real challenge is rewarding your employees for a job well done because customers tend to contact you only when there’s a problem BUT…

“There’s an app for that!”

Well, it’s a software — and it’s called Hively — a customer satisfaction and employee reward software that we created with staffing and recruiting companies in mind. We make it super easy on those customers who might not normally respond. It just takes one click! (Clients or customers can also leave a written comment.)
