The Key Driver Behind Customer Retention
Posted by Insightlink on 05/27/16
Is Extraordinary Customer Service
Extraordinary because it is creative, genuine and deliberate; the kind that is deeply rooted in an organization’s culture and its ethos towards its employees. Extraordinary employees deliver extraordinary frontline service; these are the employees who go above and beyond because they intrinsically believe in the company they represent. Employees will bring an organization’s mission vision and values to life if they are believe in the job they are doing, if they feel they are an integral part of the organization.
The Happy Employee Myth
Many organizations have based their entire philosophy on the belief that happy employees lead to more satisfied customers but our research shows this is only partly true. We found that often times employees say they are happy because they are content with the way things are, but that is often because of external motivators like perks and ‘presents’. External motivators can keep morale high and have a positive impact on employees' feelings of satisfaction in the short term, but they do not contribute to long-term satisfaction.
The Truth about Happy Employees
Long-term satisfaction requires understanding the essence of what truly motivates us to work to the best of our ability. Values such as loyalty, dedication, commitment and drive cannot be sustained with perks and external 'presents'. Long term, these values and attitudes will be nurtured through internal motivators such as feeling challenged, feeling they make a valuable contribution to the organization's success, having a sense of belonging and taking pride in their work.
Where Are Your Employees on the Engagement Spectrum?
The bottom line is satisfied employees will do a good job while engaged employees will strive to make things better. The best way to shift your employees into becoming engaged begins by knowing definitively where your employees are on the engagement spectrum and that journey begins with a superior employee survey. In this way a well-crafted survey takes the guesswork out of building morale and increasing engagement.
The best way, we believe to find out how your employees feel about their work and what they are thinking, is to conduct an employee survey and ask them.
