Customer Service Still Not a Priority for Businesses: What Gives?

Almost any blog you read on the topic of customer service will tell you the same thing: customer care (i.e. retention, loyalty, quality of service, diminished churn) must be a top priority for organizations. A sea of related statistics and market research corroborates this sentiment. For example, according to aggregated research from HR consulting firm Adecco, 15 percent of customers will abandon a company due to poor customer service; meanwhile, loyalty from one customer can be worth 10 times as much as one-time purchase.
