“Brandon succeeded in two main areas this past year at Keystone. The first one was his customer focus. Brandon put his customers first. He allows them all of his attention without interruption. He finished with 91% NPS (Net Promotor Score), which was well above the company goal. One of his NPS comments was, 'Unlike most any retail experience you’ll encounter. Patient, friendly, super-smart staff ready to help. No question was a dumb question. A guy named Brandon helped me. I could tell he really enjoys his job helping people select the right product.'”
Attitude & Teamwork:
“Another area Brandon succeeded in was his approachability. Brandon is always willing to accept fearless feedback from his peers and from managers. He listens and tries to apply the feedback within his interactions. Brandon exercises great patience and composure. Brandon's teamwork and willingness to jump in and flex to any need that arises is a great asset to our team.”
