Customer experience is the buzzword on everyone’s lips, whether you’re in marketing, sales or the board room. We all want happy customers and there are an array of digital tools you can use to elicit feedback, increase advocacy and harness referrals as well as whole host of website tweaking tools from heat mapping to gamification that can make the whole process of ‘delighting the customer’ easy, or at least achievable.
At the same time, employee engagement is another emerging hot topic as employees spend less time at each business, and millennials seek to work with companies that align with their own outlook and goals. Many businesses are seriously starting to look at ways to ensure their employees are committed to the business, share its brand values and contribute to the company positively.
But can the same rules we invest so much time in at the ‘customer experience’ end of the funnel be applied to employees?
This isn’t just a way to tie in the processes at your business or a way to ‘spoil’ people. We know for many businesses, times are tough. However, there is no escaping that happy employees promote your brand with positivity when they aren’t on the job.
Take a look at these voluntary reviews posted on Glassdoor.com by employees…
Happy employees stay with you, even when a better offer might otherwise tempt them away. Happy employees listen to your new initiatives and get behind them. They are so happy in fact, that they want to promote what you offer to potential customers wherever they may meet them – from a networking event to a chance interaction on holiday.
It makes sense that if you want to funnel customers towards a positive interaction with your brand, making your employees happy could be the most effective way to create a positive customer experience, which will also pay dividends for your business in the long run.
