The Power of You - Customer Service Makeover
Internal Communications - Cable System II
Time Warner Cable
Austin, TX
The Power of YouDuring the past year, Time Warner Cable Corporate has been working with the Austin division to develop a prototype for a complete overhaul of the customer experience. Nearly 1,000 employees attended the event to launch the comprehensive customer care makeover plan. The event featured a 45-minute media blitz, including music, dancers, comedians and dazzling pyrotechnics. The entertainment functioned as a backdrop to a much more serious purpose as company executives introduced twelve initiatives that span all aspects of the customer experience. Early results from the initiatives have exceeded expectations. For example, the automated problem resolution system is resolving issues for an additional 30,000 customers/month and trouble calls are down 18% compared to last year.

Banding Together for New Orleans
Internal Communications - MSO
Cox Communications, Inc.
Atlanta, GA
Banding Together for New OrleansHurricane Katrina was an experience that brought the whole company together. On the anniversary of the hurricane, Cox Communications launched Band Together, a campaign to raise funds for an event to recognize the hard work and commitment of Cox New Orleans employees. Cox employees in New Orleans showed an inspiring amount of resilience as they worked to rebuild their lives and renew their commitment to Cox Communications and their customers. Cox’s 20,000+ employees contributed more than $20,500 to fund the event by purchasing a Band Together wristband for a minimum donation of $1. Funds raised were matched (dollar-for-dollar) by the company for a well-deserved event to give employees a break from their recovery efforts.
