Is the employee experience – customer experience connection real?

Last week, I had the pleasure of joining Sue Bethanis of Mariposa Leadership to talk about  that very connection and the importance of putting the employee first in your customer experience strategy.

It was a great conversation, and we covered a pretty broad range of topics, including:

  • what is employee experience
  • why the employee experience is so important
  • the role of culture in the customer engagement strategy
  • examples of companies who exemplify this connection
  • why companies still don’t get it
  • how we can shift that thinking
  • how do we make the argument that employees come first
  • tools to impact the employee experience
  • how to use employee feedback
  • and more…
