Customer Empathy is profitable.

“The top 10 empathy performers generated 50% more earnings than the bottom 10… We see year-on-year market capitalization growth soaring at 23.3%, compared to an average 5.2% across the Index as a whole.” – 2015 Global Empathy Index Report.

Globally, the returns from investing in customer experience excellence are not being fully realised.

Global performance reports reflect current customer experience (CX) practices are failing organisations and their customers. Forrester’s CX Index showed again this year, that “81% of brand scores stagnated; most industry front-runners were repeats; many gains too minor to render them statistically significant.”

The Customer Empathy deficit present in organisational culture is keeping customers at arm’s length. Data now represents customers that are out of view, who are seen as numbers on a spreadsheet and CX scores rather than human beings. Alex Allwood discusses how to change this status quo.

In my experience, the most effective enabler in changing the silo status quo is helping people across the business develop their customer empathy skills.

Are You Using Empathy Nudges?

What does your team discuss in their daily stand-up?

This got me thinking. How often are we really discussing our customers’ needs in our daily stand-up meetings, ELT meetings and project meetings, etc.? We know what we should be doing but how is this translating into enterprise wide, customer-centric behaviour; our small, day-to-day actions?

Why your company has a customer empathy deficit

Organisations face a seemingly insurmountable challenge in transitioning to a customer-centric culture.

Executives and employees alike have lost their human connection with customers. They have lost a propensity to understand customers—to perspective-take, to step into their customers’ world and experience their lives from the customer’s point of view; to understand how their customers think, feel and experience.
