The US Customer Experience Awards 2022

The US has always been a pioneer in many aspects of customer-centric culture, it therefore makes total sense that Awards International – the company behind some of the best known CX programs in the awards calendar – is launching another exciting awards program for 2022, The US Customer Experience Awards. This is the first award program of its kind for CX professionals and companies in America, but it is more than just a competition – it’s a chance to share your knowledge, network with other passionate CX practitioners, and honor your incredible team!

The world certainly feels different today compared to pre-pandemic times, but amongst those bleak news stories, many organizations have fantastic achievements to share and celebrate. How have you excelled for your customers? What innovations have been driven? Maybe your team has really pulled out all the stops for your customers? This is your chance to celebrate that CX success – and be in with the chance of picking up one of the first ever trophies in these inaugural awards.

 

Customer experience sits front and centre of all of the 19 categories on offer, but the organizers have split their subcategories into three main themes – Customer Experience Classics, Customer Experience Evolution and Customer Experience Professionals.

Has the pandemic made you stop and rethink your business strategy? Perhaps in the face of unprecedented working from home conditions you’ve had to overhaul your approach to employee engagement? Has your customer experience measurement undergone its own transformation? Or maybe the pressure caused by Covid-19 has led you to develop a pioneering software solution to aid customer experience? Do any of your leaders spring to mind having consistently gone above and beyond for customers and their teams? Or maybe there’s a team that have really delivered despite so many challenging backdrops?

There are categories for customer experience, customer-centric culture, best use of insight and feedback, best digital transformation, diverse and inclusive customer experience, as well as individual team and customer service leader categories. In fact, if your US-based business has been working hard to deliver great customer experience, there really is something for everyone, large or small. Have a look through all the categories on offer and see what you fancy your chances of winning.

Though this is the first American-based awards for Awards International, the company is no stranger to customer experience awards, with well-established editions in the UK, Europe and an International edition to name a few. The team there are happy to help with entries every step of the way. They have dedicated awards consultants, free case studies, top tips articles and webinars to help you decide how to make your company shine.

The process of awards isn’t always about picking up a trophy. These awards not only offer you the chance to celebrate, finalists can also benefit from networking and insight chances with opportunities to connect with other customer experience professionals and gain practical insight from their initiatives as well.

“Entering the awards was such a great experience for us. The virtual judging and ceremony was just as thrilling as if we had been there in person. We were impressed with the high calibre of the judges, and prior to the event, the organisers were so supportive with any questions we had.”
Dr Paul Phillips CBE, Principal, Weston College

Perhaps most useful though, all finalists receive a benchmarked feedback report, so if you aren’t successful – you can use the exercise to see how you drive continuous improvement by looking at the overall scores and judges’ comments.

How to enter

The robust and transparent entry process is split into two parts; a written entry and live-judging event, each making up 50% of your overall score.

The final deadline for entry is March 25th 2022, but if you can get your entry completed before February 25th then you qualify for the ‘early bird entry’ and save money on your entry fees. If you want to secure the early bird pricing, you need only register and choose your categories before this date (you don’t need to complete the entry by then). A standard entry fee is US$649 for a single entry plus US$349 for any subsequent nominations – or you can go for a package of four entries for US$1399. You can check out the costs check the costs on their Enter Now page. 

Once you’ve registered and paid, you’ll be given access to an online entry portal where you’ll find an entry template that’s the same for every category.

The categories

As I mentioned, there are 19 different categories to choose from, with a maximum of 10 categories your company can enter. The categories are split into Customer Experience Classics, Customer Experience Evolution and Customer Experience Professionals: What suits your organization best?

Top tips

It’s easy to look at an entry form and feel overwhelmed by the task ahead. But the most important thing is to try and make your entry memorable. With judges reading several entries in each category – you need to help them understand what it is you’ve done that’s so impressive! What has it delivered for your business? What might have happened if you hadn’t gone ahead?

Once you’ve grabbed the judges’ attention you need to keep it through information, facts and evidence that substantiate your claims. Judges never just want to find out about what you did, it’s also vital you tell them the impact, too. Try and find a great mixture of storyline and evidence and don’t forget the all-important second stage presentations, as they are worth half of your overall score!

Next steps?
