6 Ways to Boost Employee Engagement

Employee engagement should be one of the top priorities for every brand. Actively engaged and motivated employees are more committed to their company’s goals. They’re willing to invest more time and channel their talents in the most effective ways. They’re also more likely to become brand ambassadors that believe in and promote the company’s values and products or services.

On the other hand, disengaged employees cost businesses between $450 and $550 billion annually.

Despite this significant impact, 36% of businesses see engagement as one of their biggest challenges. In this article, we’ll discuss ways to create employee engagement.

How to Improve a Customer Experience Strategy

customer experience strategy

The UK Customer Satisfaction Index (UKCSI) is at its lowest level since 2015, sitting at 76.9, 0.8 points lower than January 2019. Organisations with higher customer satisfaction levels have higher employee productivity and engagement. 

We know that excellent quality customer service is built on a customer’s experience with that company, the company’s ethos, its complaint handling, its ethics, and the customer’s emotional connection to that company. We also know that the more a company invests in its customer experience, the higher the return on investment. 

If you are looking to improve your customers’ experience with your business, first you’re going to need a solid customer experience strategy. SERVICEBRAND GLOBAL will work with your business to ensure that through behaviour change, your teams are engaged, empowered, and invested in providing an excellent customer experience.

SERVICEBRAND GLOBAL – How to Create a Brand Identity

branding and identity

Creating a brand identity for your business is an essential step for any organisation that wants to increase sales, improve customer service, and drive employee engagement. 

We’re living in extraordinary times, and exceptional times require a unique approach to creating the right branding and identity for your business. The stronger your identity, the more your customers, employees, service partners, and local communities will engage with it and stay with it. 

What’s Brand Identity?

Your brand identity is a way of communicating to the world your “essence” and outlining how you are different from your competitors. It’s a way of telling the world who you are and what you stand for, what you believe in, and what’s essential for your business. It describes what your company’s personality and character is, and what its purpose and values are too.

It’s not just your logo, typeface, colours, photography, website, and packaging. It’s who you are and your company’s customer experience style. It’s your employees as ambassadors for your brand, and it’s how you express yourself to the world via social media, your website, and YouTube. It’s also how you sound, taste, smell and feel. “Your brand is what people say about you when you are not in the room” Jeff Bezos

Looking to Values for Strength Versus Covid-19

How our personal values can support us at this challenging time

I have spoken to several people, now working from home, who are feeling “lost” to varying degrees at this time, searching for structure, direction and purpose. This is a good time to reboot: clear away everything that is unnecessary and focus on what is important to us. One way to do this is to identify your values, translate these into practical behaviours and then consciously practice them every day. This is the framework for the my31Practices approach: Identify, Action, Impact, Refine. The approach draws on a variety of sources such as psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness, NLP, action learning, habit formation and others and the book, MY 31 PRACTICES, release the power of your values for authentic happiness, co-authored with Steve Payne and illustrated by John Montgomery was published in 2016.

How to Communicate Effectively During Times of Change

Effective communication during times of rapid change is different in style to communication in a steady state or “business as usual” environment. If you are a team leader, here are some tips that you might find useful to practice at this time:

Make Communication Regular and Frequent
It is imperative to set the expectation that there will be regular communication that is credible and comprehensive. Often there is a tendency for people to wait to send any type of communication until all the information is known and available. This is a mistake! It’s much more important to cycle your communication and repeat the same message often than to wait until all the information is complete and perfect. What if you don’t know something? Tell them! You can always say, “We don’t have all the information yet, but this is what we do know.”
