Building customer trust to drive your KPIs

  2. 2. 2 Having worked globally with telecommunications and health-related companies, as well as government organisations in insight, brand, experience and sales & service training, we conducted a small-scale proactive study with 300 telco customers and non-customers in november 1016. We explore trust in telstra, vodafone and optus, and what drives their trust best. We look at a number of health funds to examine their levels of trust and loyalty, as well as what drives them. These study findings are to be used to understand the principles, impact and operationalisation of trust – and as a good indication and hypothesis only Additionally, in this study, we looked into customer perception of efficient delivery and the impact of issues concerning trust and loyalty. UNDERSTANDING TRUST TRUST DRIVES 85% OF YOUR NPS AND 75% OF YOUR CUSTOMER LOYALTY.

  4. 4. 4 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Performance is a question of trust Trust is not the same for each brand { Trust – the robust kind PWC calls trust the ‘forgotten asset’. They urge you to view trust not as an insurance, but as your greatest growth opportunity, and advise boards and managements to adopt a trust strategy. Ours and others’ international studies show that trust drives the vast majority of all organisational KPIs, the top and bottom line. For 14 years we have specialised in the psychology of trust and developed robust frameworks to analyse, build and track trust to help organisations improve their performance, both internally and externally. Every little bit of trust, added or lost, makes a huge impact on sales, loyalty and advocacy Competence and Benefit trust drive well over 1/3 of Telstra’s total trust. Competence trust is driven by your network quality and understanding of your long-term in- vestment, such as e-health. Your benefit trust, by a big margin, is driven by Telstra’s foresight in its CEO succession. Optus’ and Vodafone’s trust are driven by total- ly different trust dimensions. Trust is about ‘what you can and want to trust for’; In the 3 telcos reviewed, it is totally different from one brand to the other. To effectively build trust, one needs to know ‘what trust’ to build. What drives trust for particular health insurers is very different from one company to the next. Our approach, HuTrust®, is a practical, robust and scientifically proven methodology that analyses and builds trust through all functions.
  5. 5. 5 TRUST DRIVES THE VAST MAJORITY OF YOUR KPIs Trust is the root cause of your customer’s attitudes and behaviours. If trust is the key driver, can you improve your kpis effectively, without understanding it?
  6. 6. 6 TRUST: EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS Investor behaviour Every little bit of trust, added or lost, makes a huge impact on acquistion and retention. Just 20% more trust with a customer results in an improved attitude and behaviour by 400% People behaviour Customer behaviour
  7. 7. 7 Working with psychologists and psychology professor w. Salber in 2003, we found that trust consists of 6 distinct categories. These 6 categories of trust drive over 86% of trust – which, in statistical terms, is pretty much all of it. The 6 categories of trust in the HuTrust® model are also proven to drive the vast majority of all key customer attitudes and behaviours. The 6 HuTrust® dimensions are proven to be the drivers of trust and thus your other KPIs. HUTRUST® : THE SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND AND PRACTICALLY PROVEN WAY TO MEASURE AND BUILD TRUST HuTrust® makes trust, the key driver of attitudes and behaviours towards you, workable. The program encompasses measurement, trust driver development and training, and workshop programs that empower your teams to build more and more trust in all functions.
  8. 8. 8 UNDERSTANDING TRUST TRUST & LOYALTY IN TELCOS These study findings are to be used to understand the principles, impact and operationalisation of trust – but only as a good indication and hypothesis
  9. 9. 9 HUTRUST® EQUITY ANALYSIS In this study, telstra’s and optus’ customer trust sits at just below the trust threshold. From our other studies, we would expect this to be a bit higher in your own studies. Total sample = 300 Q: I am loyal to this brand // I trust this brand YOU ARE HERE
  10. 10. 10 LOYALTY & TRUST DISTRIBUTION – TELCO PROVIDER Other telcos we worked with achieved up to 25% of customers giving them a 10/10 on trust. Total sample = 300 Q: I am loyal to this brand // I trust this brand I am loyal to this brand I trust this brand These customers would be a prime opportunity to shift into 9/10 or 10/10. That’s not done by eliminating pain points and more ‘getting what I want when I want’.

  12. 12. 12 HUTRUST® EQUITY ANALYSIS The HuTrust® equity analysis shows how strongly you and your competitors are trusted in each of the 6 trust categories. This is what enables organisations to do something about trust. Telstra’s own customers appear to trust Telstra less in Relationship, Benefit, Competence and Vision trust than the customers of the other telcos. Total sample = 300 Customers Telstra Optus Vodafone
  13. 13. 13 HUTRUST® EQUITY ANALYSIS As expected, non-customers score each company far lower than their own provider. Amongst non-customers, Optus and Telstra are equally trusted for their stability and future development (although, both only at a trust neutral level). Optus leads Telstra significantly in all other trust categories. After losing a lot of trust, Vodafone still has a long way to go. Total sample = 300 Non customers Telstra Optus Vodafone
  15. 15. 15 HUTRUST® DRIVER ANALYSIS – OWN CUSTOMERS The HuTrust® driver analysis shows which of the 6 trust categories are most important for customers to trust the brand. For Telstra, the most important trust drivers are totally different from those of Optus and Vodafone. Benefit trust – this brand is valuable to me in my life – is by far the most important for Telstra customers to trust. It is also the most important in regard to their loyalty. For Telstra to build more trust, improve their NPS, customer experience and loyalty, a particular emphasis needs to be placed on building benefit trust. We are cognisant that this study is only a proactive, small scale study. The research would have to be done with the different segments qualitatively and quantitatively to reveal more trust drivers and inhibitors, and to model them. Non customers Total sample = 300 Telstra Optus Vodafone The driver analysis shows the over/ under index of each trust dimension versustheaverageofthe6dimensions.
  16. 16. 16 HUTRUST® DRIVER ANALYSIS – OWN CUSTOMERS Here, we also checked what drives customer loyalty, as it is telstra’s key focus. Benefit trust shows to be even more important to loyalty than it is for trust. Customer retention is obviously critical. Loyalty means higher lifetime value, higher degree of product holding, less price sensitivity and lower cost to serve. For Optus, it becomes clear that development trust is key. For Vodafone it is stability, development and relationship trust. Customer loyalty drivers Telstra Optus Vodafone Total sample = 300

  18. 18. 18 HUTRUST® ATTRIBUTE ANALYSIS – TELSTRA’S OWN CUSTOMERS THE HUTRUST ATTRIBUTE ANALYSIS TELLS YOU HOW TO BEST BUILD THE FOCUS TRUST. We are happy to discuss the full set. We included 61 attribute statements. These were split into: — Business-generic attributes—attributes that relate to an organisation being well run. — Category-generic attributes—attributes that relate to category product and service factors — Brand attributes—attributes and values that are brand unique, or could be (in this study we included a number of attributes we know from our qualitative research. It is not a list of your internally agreed values and attributes. In addition, they broadly covered all 6 HuTrust® categories. Business-generic attributes Category-generic attributes Brand attributes Is well managed The management is stable They have been around for a long time They innovate continuously They think about innovation beyond product and technology – more about me I know what they currently do that will benefit me in the future They understand how I want to contact them ... They are one of the largest They have their own network They have been around for a long time I know how they will improve/develop their network in the future They proactively let me know what happens with the NBN They have access to the best brands and products They think beyond TELCO, including watches and virtual reality ... After the government sell-off, Telstra has shown long-term foresight in their choice and smooth transition of management teams and styles by first using an outsider to shake the organisation up, then making the hard and big decisions regarding the network and technology. Further, by using David Thodey to lead a customer-focused change in culture and now Andy Penn, who worked with David as CFO, to continue that path and lay out a clear succession plan. Telstra were founded to look after our telecommunication needs. And though now privatised, they still regard this foundation as important. Telstra understand how telecommunications can change our lives and, therefore, invest into the future with telehealth and education. At Telstra all staff, including IT and finance, regularly have to spend time with customers or join the call centre to ensure they understand customers and what impacts them. So, you may have their CEO listen to your next call and view your next chat. Telstra has a clear, long-term investment plan, continuing to offer their customers the best option in telecommunications. ...
  19. 19. 19 HUTRUST® ATTRIBUTE ANALYSIS – OWN CUSTOMERS For telstra to improve customer trust and loyalty, with a benefit trust focus, we identified 3 key attributes. All 3 of these are unique to Telstra, providing Telstra with a unique opportunity to build trust and loyalty. Business- generic and category-generic attributes were found NOT to be significant. Interestingly, out of the 3 key attributes to drive benefit trust and loyalty, the ‘Telstra board’s foresight in appointing Sol Trujillo as an outsider to make controversial, significant structural and technological changes (and) David Thodey to seize on them with customer focus and culture, and now Andy Penn as an astute manager with financial focus’, drives benefit trust the most. Currently most customers would see the Trujillo appointment as a distrust driver. The other benefit trust drivers are either well-known or functional attributes. However, the ‘foresight’ attribute, as a strong driving force of trust, shows that trust needs to be looked at differently. We would also suspect (although not tested here) that this attribute would drive the NPS considerably. This is not to say that other attributes don’t contribute. We have identified a number of others that drive the other trust dimensions. But, the emergence of the ‘foresight in appointing….’ attribute shows that a different perspective reveals ample opportunity for Telstra to drive customer experience, NPS and loyalty. Brand attributes Foresight with appointment of Trujillo, Thodey, Penn The best network 38% 33% 19% 10%Australia focused New ideas like turning phone booths into hot spots
  20. 20. 20 HUTRUST® ATTRIBUTE OPERATIONALISATION The attributes identified can be implemented through the best suited channels. The attribute most effective in improving customer trust and loyalty is also the easiest and least cost and time intensive to implement. In our work, we continuously find our clients don’t make effective use of their existing trust equity in channels like marketing, sales and service. Trust and Loyalty driver Status Action Best channels Foresight with appointment of Trujillo, Thodey, Penn….. Unknown, in fact, currently negatively perceived. The best network Well known. Reminding from time to time. Possibly with localised info. New ideas, like turning phone booths into hot spots Well known, but remind and look at fresh, often small, ideas to introduce. Australia focused Customers are not sure about this. Even the SEA investment doesn’t take this away. Investment into e- health, etc., would support this further. FOR ILLUSTRATION ONLY
  21. 21. 21 UNDERSTANDING TRUST TRUST & LOYALTY IN HEALTH FUNDS These study findings are to be used to understand the principles, impact and operationalisation of trust – but only as a good indication and hypothesis.
  22. 22. 22 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Trust and Loyalty. Navy Health garners the highest level of loyalty with 28% of customers scoring them 10/10. For others, the loyalty levels are far lower. Medibank’s stability trust is clearly impacted by recent issues. But, customers’ trust in Medibank to successfully develop is equal to other providers, indicating a trust in Medibank to overcome the issues. Customers give their providers the same scores on trust. This is not surprising, because the more we trust, the more loyal we become. Knowing what drives trust the strongest in one’s brand enables us to focus on and explore how to best build or rebuild it. In Private Health Insurance, this can be done in a unique and differentiated manner. What drives trust in each brand is very different.
  23. 23. 23 LOYALTY & TRUST SCORES Total sample = 300 Q: I am loyal to this brand // I trust this brand Medibank, bupa and navy health trust sit just above the trust threshold in the “low trust” category. Gmhba on average sits below the others in “neutral trust”. Loyalty scores for each company are in line with their trust scores. I trust this brand I am loyal to this brand
  24. 24. 24 LOYALTY DISTRIBUTION In this study, navy health garners an impressive 28% of 10/10 in loyalty. Overall loyalty is not high. Total sample = 300 Q: I am loyal to this brand // I trust this brand I am loyal to this brand
  25. 25. 25 The trust distribution shows the high level of correlation. This is not surprising. The more we trust someone, the more loyal we are. Total sample = 300 Q: I am loyal to this brand // I trust this brand I trust this brand LOYALTY & TRUST DISTRIBUTION – HEALTH PROVIDER
  26. 26. 26 HUTRUST® PROFILE – HEALTH PROVIDER The privatisation and recent issues have had a significant impact on what medibank is trusted for. All but development trust are affected, indicating that customers trust medibank to overcome the issues. Navy health score consistently high in all HuTrust® dimensions – but specifically in competence trust. Total sample = 300 Q: Please tell us your level of agreement to the following statements....HuTrust® Medibank GMHBA Bupa Navy Health Customers
  27. 27. 27 Interestingly, non-customers score all other providers at almost identical levels. They score other providers very low on trust – a benefit to the particular provider – and, on average, they don’t trust other providers. Total sample = 300 Q: Please tell us your level of agreement to the following statements....HuTrust® LOYALTY & TRUST DISTRIBUTION – HEALTH PROVIDER Non customers Medibank Bupa GMHBA Navy Health
  28. 28. 28 CUSTOMER HUTRUST® DRIVER – HEALTH PROVIDER What drives trust in each provid- er differs significantly, providing a clear focus for effective and differ- entiated trust building. It shows also that while medibank’s stability trust is diminished, it is not the driver to focus on. Total sample =300 Q: Please tell us your level of agreement to the following statements....HuTrust® Medibank Bupa GMHBA Navy Health Customer trust drivers
  29. 29. 29 The loyalty driver analysis polaris- es this further. For medibank, the focus needs to be on rebuilding competence trust.
