Your Customer’s Experience is Directly Related To Employee Engagement

No Comments

Question: What does my customer’s experience have to do with employee engagement?

Answer: It is impossible to have extraordinary levels of positive, loyalty-creating customer experiences if your employees are not highly engaged.

Why? Because customer satisfaction, by itself, is not predictive of loyalty or repeat business. Research has shown that it is only when a customer’s satisfaction is linked to a relationship at an emotional level – some point of connection with a strong emotional component (trust, self-image, connection) – that it delivers the kind of passionate commitment every brand dreams of having. Nothing devastates the customer experience faster than disengaged employees serving up lukewarm commitment and lackluster service. When you look at truly passionate customers, there is always some point of human connection at an emotional level (either actual or felt) behind it.  So if any part of your business proposition involves creating exceptional customer experiences, the best place to begin is with your staff.

BEST PRACTICE — If customer loyalty and passion are important to you, there is no more effective way to improve that relationship than increasing the level of employee engagement in your organization.  No other factor (including expensive CRM programs) comes close.

We have used over a dozen top-notch speakers, and Don has received the highest feedback scores of any of them.

What people get out of Engagient is unique, timely, scientific, and pragmatic. It's not the same old motivational or touchy-feely content – it makes you sit up and say "Wow I need to DO these things!"

I especially appreciate his desire to work within the thematic context of our meetings - it never feels like he is just dropping a cookie-cutter speech into a meeting - he wants it to be a great fit.
