James Mworia Interview
“But imagine for a moment that you order flowers for a loved one using your cellphone provider – if the experience is positive, you might book movie tickets, organize a baby sitter, arrange a holiday, and if all of these experiences work, you will eventually trust them enough to buy a car or finance your house using your cellphone provider,” he explains. “Once your telco has earned your trust, with each engagement, the trust journey grows, as does the perception of the telco and eventually the user dependency changes from just airtime to everything.”
For your employees to take your customers on the trust journey, they need the skill, knowledge, and capability. Every experience is an opportunity where brands get to exceed customer expectations. Your employees are directly linked to your business’ success. An adequately skilled employee must be available to handle the interaction and to elicit the desired outcome, be that a sale, a query resolution, or a service.
Employees must be empowered with knowledge and support to provide positive customer experiences and businesses that don’t embrace this will become redundant. CEO involvement is not optional – all leaders must constantly reinforce the message of the importance of the customer.
“The culture of an organization should be: If we are not here for the customer, why are we here at all?” Ball emphasizes. “Disruptive technologies such as Airbnb and Uber are changing the way business gets done. Customers have a real choice with an on-demand economy, and rapidly changing technology is changing the way we do business forever. Every employee must have a customer connection, understanding that whatever they do today, moves the business forward for better customer experience.”
Customers need to have multichannel accessibility – and the service should be personalized, consistent and interactive. Providing feedback loops gives us the opportunity to listen to the voice of the customer. “Every engagement should be measured and those brands that put their employee performance up against the actual customer experience will understand that they have their customers on the “trust journey”. When employees and customers are happy, the trust grows and the business is winning. You can’t have one without the other,” Ball concludes.
