Sidney Belingheri of Leavitt Insurance Agency in Nevada recently received the Outstanding CSR of the Year Award for the state of Nevada. The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research began presenting this award in 1991 to recognize the contributions of customer service representatives within the insurance community. The award has come to be regarded as the foremost national award of its kind.
To qualify for the top state honor, candidates submitted an essay on the topic, “Four Ways CSRs Can Make or Break an Agency.” Additionally, entrants must have demonstrated commendable service to their agencies, their industry, and their community. The only eligibility requirement for this award is that the candidate must be an insurance customer service representative, or have primary responsibility for insurance customer service duties.
“The Outstanding CSR of the Year Award honors the exceptional customer service representatives in the industry who have a thorough knowledge of insurance products and their customers best interest at heart,” said Danielle Janecka, assistant vice president of The National Alliance. “These state-level winners have demonstrated through their essays that they understand that their most important service is the peace of mind they can give to their customers.”
Each state winner receives a framed certificate and is eligible to compete for the national honor, which carries a $1,000 cash award, a gold and diamond pin, and a scholarship for the recipient`s employer to any program offered by The National Alliance. Additionally, the name of the Outstanding CSR of the Year is inscribed on a sculpture permanently displayed at the national headquarters of The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research in Austin, Texas.
