Airport celebrates customer service
By Amy Schneider

The 15th annual Customer Service Employee Recognition Program on October 6 honored employees of Airport-wide businesses who have gone above and beyond to “exceed customer expectations.”

The event, held at the Georgia International Convention Center, featured a buffet lunch, raffles for donated prizes, and performances by Tri-Cities High School’s drum line, Total Dance Theatre, and Gritz and Jelly Butter Band.

Hartsfield-Jackson senior-level executives addressed the audience during the program. Interim Deputy General Manager Robert Kennedy introduced Aviation General Manager Louis Miller, who commended employees at Hartsfield-Jackson for their obvious commitment to “providing the highest level of customer service.”

Three top prizes were awarded:

• Ambassador Award: This award is given to the employee who receives the most company letters, Air-Talk cards and other customer commendations from September 2009 through August 2010. The winner, Sidney Gates of TBI Airport Management, received a trophy and $1,000 in gift cards.

• Unsung Hero/Heroine Award: This award recognizes the employee whose principal role involves direct, face-to-face customer contact and who positively affects the Airport’s overall image. The winner, Sabrina Maxey of Aircraft Service International Group, aided someone who was living in a hotel by taking her home, providing her with food and helping her to get a job. Maxey received a trophy and $2,000 in gift cards.

• Superstar Award: This award goes to the monthly recognition winner whose customer service efforts are deemed most outstanding based on impact, significance and uniqueness. Mark King of AirTran Airways assisted a passenger in a wheelchair who needed help; he went so far as to accompany her downtown on MARTA and stay with her until he was sure she would be OK. King received a trophy and $4,000 in gift cards.
