2012 Chattanooga Seal Of Satisfaction Award Recipient Companies Named

Monday, March 19, 2012
Services Select has announced the 2012 Seal of Satisfaction certification mark and award recipient companies for Chattanooga.  The awards and certificates were presented to owners or executives of each company during the black-tie 2012 Seal of Satisfaction Awards Dinner held at the Sheraton Read House’s Silver Ballroom.

“The Seal of Satisfaction is a federally registered certification mark on which consumers can rely,” said Gary Miller, Services Select’s chief executive officer. “Companies receiving the Seal have committed to uphold the highest standards of quality and exceptional service.

 It separates and elevates recipient companies and certainly simplifies the life of the consumer wondering which company to contact when in need.  Services Select has a 19-step evaluation and interview process, with five of those steps involving further elimination of companies not meeting the high standards and commitment required for certification.”

An independent research firm, Wilkins Research Services, conducts both the nomination process with local consumers and initial evaluation of nominated companies.  From over 70 different professional services categories, consumers nominate businesses who are then evaluated using proprietary criteria.  Upon eliminating companies not worthy of consideration for the Seal of Satisfaction, the research company provides Services Select with a certified list of finalist companies.  Services Select personnel then conducts interviews with finalist company owners or executives to review each company’s systems, policies and procedures, employees training programs, documentation procedures, etc; to determine whether the invitation to receive the certification mark with be extended.
