Service Excellence: Back To Basics

Back To Basics focuses on the “Why” of the cooperative and the “Why” of Service Excellence. Cooperatives were formed to provide a service to communities that no one else would…safe, affordable, reliable electricity. That is our excuse as cooperative employees to make life better for the members that we serve. What is our individual role in providing that service?
