Engage Customer Covid-19 Industry Survey: Have Your Say

As a leading source of news and media content to a global industry of customer experience professionals, in April 2020 we decided to ask our community of 48,000 leaders how Covid-19 was affecting them from both a business and individual perspective, as this pandemic has changed the way that both organisations and humans will behave for the foreseeable future at the very least. In a ten-question survey that covers every angle associated with the changes brought about by Covid-19, key leaders in the CX world gave up their valuable time to tell us how they feel, what they’re currently doing, what they wish they’d done differently and what they think the future holds. You’ll find the full list of answers comprehensively listed throughout the report, which hopefully makes for an insightful and interesting read that will help you on your own Covid-19 journey.

Time for a Revolution: How to Beat the CX Slump

Has customer experience stalled? There are certainly indicators that suggest as much. Consumers question whether businesses are really taking their feedback seriously – with just 11% believing that to be the case. Meanwhile a rather weak 12% of people feel that brands have made significant improvements to the customer experience in recent years1. The Forrester US Customer Experience (CX) Index, 20192 shows that most brands are only achieving the dizzy heights of “ok” at the moment. In our survey we asked our audience whether they felt they needed evolution or revolution in the coming year. Most think that an evolutionary approach is right for them, but close to a quarter of our audience are ready for a revolution. Bring it on!

The State of CX in 2018: The Five Habits of Highly Effective CX Professionals

Welcome to the 2018 State of Customer Experience report. Like last year, we aimed to gather views from CX practitioners around the world to get a clear picture of the environment in which CX is operating. What are the pitfalls? Where are we making progress? What can we learn from more advanced industries? And, our usual question – “What would you wish for if you had a CX magic wand?” The results are illuminating. In this report we have identified five habits of highly effective CX professionals, based on responses from practitioners operating across the CX spectrum. You will find practical lessons you can put into action today, and understand how we – and you – can identify success in a CX programme. Spoiler alert – it’s all about the money!
