Record-Breaking Customer Service and a Commitment to Do Even More

Record Breaking Customer Service and a Commitment to Do Even More

Roscoe’s business model is built around providing the highest quality of customer service – we take pride in growing our business through satisfied customers. We spend a lot of time thinking about ways we can improve and setting goals for continuous improvement. But what really matters is, what do our customers think?

We really want to know. It’s always nice to hear what we’re doing right – those things that drive our customer satisfaction numbers up. But we also want to know where our customers think we could do better so we can continue to identify opportunities for improvement.

Every year we bring in Carl Hendrickson, President of Market Measurement, a Detroit-based market research consulting firm, to survey our customers. Using 10 criteria shown to be “key drivers of satisfaction” in the uniform industry, Hendrickson’s firm contacts a random sampling of Roscoe’s customers, probing for detailed opinions from those who work directly with their company’s uniform program.



The Difference an Hour Can Make

The Difference an Hour Can Make

Employees may be a little groggy and perhaps even late to work in the first few days after the clock moves forward for daylight saving time.

It's only an hour, but it makes a difference. In fact, heart attacks and strokes tend to occur in greater frequency around the time shift, according to research cited in a New York Times story about efforts by some legislators to exempt their states from the practice.  At least 31 states have taken up proposals related to daylight savings, while two states, Hawaii and Arizona, already leave the clocks alone, staying on standard time all year.

As a political issue, it's not the stuff of great drama. But nobody in business would doubt the seriousness of any debate arising around the loss or gain of an hour. An hour is no small thing.



The Right Work Uniform Provider – Right From the Start

The Right Work Uniform Provider Right From the Start

The right work uniform program is a critical part of your business, and when it’s managed properly, it isn’t something that you have to spend a lot of time thinking about. It does what it’s supposed to do – building brand identity, keeping your employees safe and reflecting the professionalism of the job you do – without a lot of fuss or bother.

The wrong work uniform program has a way of showing up everywhere, sowing delay, aggravation and, eventually, chaos into every process. If you’ve experienced missing uniforms or uniforms in poor repair, you already know what the wrong work uniform provider looks like. But what does the right provider look like? How do you know if you switch that things will be any different?



Roscoe Communication "Top 10" List

Guest Blog by Jeff DeLazzer


Roscoe Work Uniform Rental Communication

If you were to look up the word communication in the Webster dictionary this is what you would find:


1. The imparting or exchanging of information or news. "Direct communication between the two individuals will produce greater understanding." Synonyms: transmission, disclosure, broadcasting

2. Means of connection between people or places, in particular.

These two definitions are interesting and true: "communicating to produce greater understanding." The main goal is to convey and educate to achieve understanding and produce greater results. More than anything though, communication is about establishing a connection. Connections with our families, friends and co-workers. Sometimes these connections are simple while others... not so much. Actually most are complicated but "achieving better understanding" is a complicated task when dealing with life's adventures.
