CX teams have been benefiting from remote work environment, as it offers them a chance to focus on “solo” tasks while still being connected to the rest of the team when needed.
How have you dealt with keeping CX teams engaged and motivated while shifting to the remote work environment?

Remote working has proven to be a good solution for the employee experience by providing the flexibility needed by each person and allowing a more interactive workspace.
Being able to work anywhere and anytime is one of the key levers for engagement, motivation and talent retention.
How to leverage customer feedback data to design CX strategies that meet their expectations?
By asking the right questions at the right time and structuring the data in an intuitive and comprehensive way. AI is starting to prove itself a good investment for natural language analysis, providing extra value information beyond figures and average rates.
A Voice of the Customer programme leading the CX strategy is key to measure the result of the actions taken and reorientate when needed. It has to be a long-term action, ensuring data consistency over time and flexible enough to include new information or data structures.
Qualitative information is key to reconfirm figures. Call-backs to customers after surveys helps understanding the feedback and designing specific action plans personalised when needed.
What can companies do to improve their customer-centric culture?
