Employee Spotlight – Dave Groulx
Dave Groulx joined New England Spas in May of 2015 and he currently works as a service technician.
Dave is this year’s winner of our Randy Jones Customer Service Award. Each calendar year New England Spas selects a candidate based on nominees from staff members who embody our companies’ Mission statement and Values. They handle customer issues in a timely and professional manner, work with our vendors to provide solutions to challenges, regularly receive positive feedback from coworkers and customers alike, and are considered team players in the company.
A 5-Star Google Review left by a happy customer after Dave serviced his hot tub really sums up what makes Dave so deserving of this award.
“There is always an expectation that when you receive service it should always be first class, professional and deliver a unique customer experience with the perfect resolution – from now on I will describe such an experience as the ‘Dave Groulx’ – says it all – Thank you Dave.”
Dave also goes above and beyond with helping to train newer technicians.
Service Department Manager, Jeremiah Belanger, noted, “Dave is exceptional. He takes new employees under his wing and in addition to always going above and beyond for customers.”
Each year the Randy Jones Award winner picks a charity of choice for a sizeable company paid donation. Dave selected the American Heart Association.
