Just recently a few managers in our office had the opportunity to travel back to the SERVPRO corporate for a five day long training course. We were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home very quickly. It was easy to see the amount of time and energy that went into the numerous presentation and workshops that we attended. There is a reason why SERPVOR has become the number one water damage restoration company in the nation and continues to further distance themselves from the competition.
It is because the purpose of SERVPRO corporate, and the over 1,700 franchises, has remained the same year after year, “happy customers”, It’s a message that the franchises do not take lightly. Sure, we were reminded of the importance of building the brand and being professional. We were kept up to date on technical advancements and the newly revised IICRC S500 standard for Water Damage. We were given advice on how to properly staff and grow our business. But at the end of the day all of that information was for the sole purpose of creating a happy customer. Although each franchise is independently owned and operated, I truly believe that most of the franchise owners have the sole purpose of creating happy customers.
It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day operations and employee drama that exists in every workplace, but our customers rely on us to make a disaster better, not add to the stress of it all and make it worse. To take the damage of a fire, sewage backup, water loss or mold situation and make it better, to make it Like It Never Even Happened, that is what our goal is at the start and end of each job. After a hard day of cleaning soot from walls, extracting water from carpet or removing sewage from a flooded crawlspace, all of us here at SERVPRO take pride in the true purpose of our company…creating happy customers.
