Great employee experience (EX) drives great customer experience (CX). Great CX drives revenue growth. And great CX reinforces — but doesn’t drive — great EX. These are three findings from Forbes insights and Salesforce research. But what exactly do they mean?
If you want to drive revenue growth, you need to have great CX. If you want to drive great CX, you need to have great EX. In other words, a remarkable employee experience is a necessary precursor a remarkable the customer experience. You need to learn more about The Service Profit Chain – proven, causal links that let us know where to invest our next dollar if we want to generate revenue growth and profitability. And this episode introduces you to it!
I’m Ethan Beute, Chief Evangelist at BombBomb, host of The Customer Experience Podcast, and coauthor of Rehumanize Your Business and Human-Centered Communication. Today, I’ll share some of the connections I made about EX while interviewing Mathew Sweezey of Salesforce for the new book I co-authored with my longtime friend and BombBomb CMO Steve Pacinelli.
In this episode, I share with you:
• What The Experience Equation report from Forbes Insights and Salesforce tells us
• What we can learn from The Service Profit Chain article from the Harvard Business Review
• What key insights to take away from The Service Profit Chain book (published in 1997)
• How internal service quality drives everything in your company
