What’s one of the top ways to stand out from your competitors? A better product? Smarter employees? More money to spend?
Those are all good ways, but research from Forrester found a different way. According to their research, 80% of companies want to use customer service to differentiate themselves from their competition.
So, if companies want to differentiate themselves on customer service, what’s the best thing a company could do to provide exemplary service?
Interestingly enough, the best way to help customers is to focus on employees. How do we know? OneReach asked 63 industry influencers, including Glance Network’s own Vice President of Marketing Holly Chessman, the number one way to improve customer service. Answers varied, but the top answer was to improve the employee experience to improve your overall customer service.
