Keynote - Measuring and Managing Employee Frustration

Monday Jun 7, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT — Sign Up For Events

Employees see meaning in their work when they can provide a positive experience for their customers.  Unfortunately, companies build in frustrations with poor internal support, lack of training and empowerment, as well as wrongheaded evaluation.

Hear a new approach to collecting actionable data on the key obstacles which impede servicing the customer. These include slow/no response from other departments, failure to update knowledge systems and requirements to get approvals.

Join us as we illustrate how:

  • Small issues can be reduced or eliminated
  • Benefits of using work from home flexibility
  • Empowerment will encourage a can-do attitude and reasonable risk-taking

A metric similar to customer effort, employee effort, will be suggested along with a simple method for obtaining a baseline and tracking. A recent case study of a Fortune 500 company will be presented along with methodology for collecting, analyzing and taking action on the data.
