CX is Not a Department
Why CX Needs to Be Organization-Wide

Many brands on a CX transformation journey struggle with change, adoption, and acceleration. Why do these initiatives often fail? Because many brands still operate in silos, instead of making it everyone’s responsibility. To be a customer-centric organization, you need to move beyond reporting lines as your customers don’t interact with your brand in silos and departments. 

Join Morana Bakula, VP Customer Experience, and Maria Pallante, VP, Loyalty Solutions, at Bond Brand Loyalty as they reveal what it takes to identify and deliver a seamless enterprise wide differentiated approach to customer experience. In this webinar, and guided by Bond’s latest global research, you will learn about new approaches that consider:

  • Leveraging human and digital moments to create experience differentiation (experiences for the person, not the persona, considering the emotional needs of your customers and people).
  • Developing a transformation roadmap to guide required processes, systems, and people tactics.
  • Creating a customer and employee engagement strategy that delivers a strong return on your CX investment.
