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.

Does Your Work Uniform Service Work as Hard as You Do?

Does Your Work Uniform Service Work as Hard as You Do?

At Roscoe, we help some of the hardest working people in the Chicago area do a better job. Our clients are food manufacturers, wholesalers, agricultural suppliers, automotive workers, printers, wholesalers, distributors, contractors and a whole lot of other businesses where a high-quality work uniform is an essential part of on-the-job safety and professionalism.

It's one part of a culture in which quality is never taken for granted, reinforced with training and a commitment to continuous improvement.

We wouldn't be doing our job if our commitment was any less than that of our customers. That's why our team members participate in an ongoing program of Structured On-the-Job Training and skill building that ensures that our work consistently lives up to the promise of reliable, high-quality, and worry-free work uniform service that our company was built on.

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?
