Customer Engagement• The customer voice is everywhere: Glassdoor, Facebook, Social Media Communities.• If we lack confidence, our customers will know it.• The same pleasure we derive from rewarding employees, we get from sharing meaningful experiences with our customers.
The Marketplace• Is competition driven by respect or adversity?• Do you play nice in the sandbox?• Are your core values remembered in the midst of competition?
The Departed• Do employees who leave voluntarily run for the exits?• Are your company alumni brand advocates or detractors?• When your culture is strong it is carried on by former employees…the ripple effect continues!
