Colonial Life recognizes top customer service employees

COLUMBIA, S.C. (March 21, 2019) — Fifty-one Columbia based employees of Colonial Life and Unum were recently recognized for superior customer service. 

The group selected for the company’s prestigious Aspire program was chosen from more than 1,200 employees in Columbia and nationwide field offices based on their commitment to excellent service, customer focus and support. 

“Extraordinary customer service is part of our culture and tradition and it’s one reason customers consistently give Colonial Life high marks on customer satisfaction surveys,” said Tim Arnold, Colonial Life president and CEO. “Our employees work hard every day to deliver on our commitment to customers and I’m proud of the great work they do. It’s a privilege to recognize Colonial Life employees who go above and beyond for our customers each day.” 

Their recognition includes participation in an elite professional development training program on customer service techniques, as well as some time for fun activities in one of America’s premier resorts.
