Operations Manager Frank Vanderpool
on a change in response to staff requests: "We developed a morning service drive process for our sales consultants. We have each representative coming into work two to three times a month a half-hour early to help with customer needs such as transportation, beverage service, easy drop-off and basic hospitality. In return, we allow the sales representatives to leave an hour early. This has increased our customer satisfaction scores in service, allowed our work force more family time and, as a result, increased morale."
