See testimonial below from Jason Fletcher with ServPro of Peoria.

“I am reaching out to let you know how much I truly appreciate everything that you and your staff have done for my organization. With your help we have truly changed the mindset of our company. I would be the first to say I was skeptical of how it all works with the pro-scans and putting it all together. You did an amazing job at our team impact workshop and got everyone involved to see what some of our hurdles were that stopped us from working together in a team format. 

We have since moved over and started doing pro-scans in our hiring process and this has allowed us to cut our turnover rate down to a minimal amount. This is huge as this is not normal in our industry especially at the entry level positions. We are now working on starting some job modeling that I think will help greatly as well.

 I would also like to thank Sarah & Melanie for all of their help and hard work as well. Every time I need something they are extremely responsive. I would recommend your company to anyone serious about changing the culture in their organization to become a true team.”

Superb Customer Service!

by Melanie Benitez | on May 24, 2016

Being recognized as a guest at a hotel was such a great customer service experience! Do you think I am a customer for life? Indeed!
Through our work at Know Your Talents, it is often that the team shows up in cities across the US to provide workshops, speaking engagements, trade shows, etc. and if you are a traveler, you know how demanding traveling can be on your teams, your family and yourself! Yet, when you walk into the hotel, you see YOUR name on the marquis, not the companies, but YOUR name. And it is the hotel’s appreciation for all the time spent in traveling and they want YOU to feel special. And it works! Check out the picture of our own Sarah Blik next to her marquis sign, the sign over the counter when at check-in and they gave her a welcome basket. Such a superb customer service experience!
