DALBAR Recognizes The Best-In-Class Providers of Policyholder Service

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone; this is certainly true for contact centers. The pandemic forced companies to rapidly shift to a work-from-home model, in many cases where the required infrastructure and training were not already in place. On top of the challenging work environment, representatives were also dealing with their own stress, anxiety and, in many cases, childcare issues. Customers, on the other hand, were still expecting the same level of service as they were accustomed to. 

It is in this context that DALBAR is excited to announce that there were two firms that stood out from their peers and earned the 2020 Insurance Service Award which recognizes providers for providing an industry-leading telephone service experience to policyholders. This year's winners are:

Despite the unique challenges of 2020, these providers were held to the same exacting standards they would have been held to in any other year.

DALBAR Director Brendan Yeager explains, "It is often through adversity that the best of the best can really distinguish themselves. That was the case with this year's award winners. Not only were Guardian Life and Pacific Life able to maintain their service quality in the face of some pretty daunting challenges, they were both able to improve on their already award-winning service at a time when the majority of the industry saw service deteriorate."

In order to earn DALBAR's prestigious Service Award, companies must undergo a thorough and independent year-long audit looking at the quality of contact center interactions. Award eligibility is determined by a review of actual customer interactions against detailed criteria based on superior service standards and industry best practices. To achieve the Insurance Service Award, companies must exceed stringent quality thresholds in criteria covering all aspects of the telephone service experience.
