It is no secret that the economy has made life difficult for companies and their customers. Rising prices due to inflation, a challenging interest rate environment, and near-daily predictions of a full-on recession have done little to instill economic confidence in either the short or long term. Some organizations have responded by redirecting their focus to cutting costs, which in some cases results in the pruning of CX programs or staff. However, making across-the-board cuts to CX programs can be short-sighted, and a more targeted approach to reducing costs may be prudent. In this webinar, Dash Research analysts provide a close examination of several key trends and strategies that are becoming more prominent as CX practitioners prepare for the challenges of an economic recession:
- Labor strategies, evolution of customer-facing roles, and the impact on CX
- CX activities and spending during previous economic recessions
- The role of AI and automation in enabling self-service, personalization, and predictive actions
- Cost-saving initiatives as part of CX programs
- Strategies to improve customer retention and increase spend
- The evolution of employee experience in a resource-constrained environment
This Dash Research webinar, which will include a presentation and discussion of trends with three industry analysts from the Dash team, will concentrate on the key challenges faced by CX practitioners across various industry sectors in the face of an economic downturn on the heels of the COVID-19 market upheaval. Key subjects covered will include cost reduction, revenue preservation, customer retention, technology adoption, and employee experience strategies in a tight economic environment.
