As discussed in Part I of the “Modifying Customer & Employee Experience Programs During COVID-19” webinar summary now is not the time to abandon your customer experience and employee experience efforts. Now is a time to stay connected to employees and customers – when they likely need to hear from you most.
So how are companies modifying their customer experience and employee experience programs right now? Medallia has been speaking with customers over the last few weeks and we have compiled some tips on how to pivot your program to help derive more value than ever.
Modify the language in your invitations for feedback – you’ve most likely received a handful of emails from vendors letting you know they are thinking of you and hoping you remain safe and healthy. Take it a step further, offer real empathy and open the lines of communication
Close the loop – responding to customers and employees who have generously provided feedback in a timely manner is paramount. Make sure to close the loop with these people.
Focus on quality, not scores – Closing alerts quickly is important, but it’s also about the quality of the experience. Help employees keep that in mind. Help them perform right now. Employees are also under stress, so try to take a step back from NPS scores and focus on making customers feel heard.
