130: Never Lose an Employee Again

Have you ever wondered how remote work is impacting our mental health? Or perhaps you’re curious about how to redefine success in our increasingly digital world?

This episode of The Customer Service Revolution is for you. We’re diving into the challenging realm of loneliness and the effects of remote work on our well-being. From the debate over the return to office to the professional isolation experienced by remote workers, we canvas the controversial and complex dynamics of our changing work landscape.

Joining John for this conversation is bestselling author and customer experience expert Joey Coleman. He shares thought-provoking insights from his book Never Lose an Employee Again, providing a robust framework for companies to enhance employee engagement and reduce turnover. We also delve into the eight phases of the employee experience, emphasizing the pivotal role of the first 100 days in a relationship. 

In the latter part of the episode, we spotlight the strategies to boost employee engagement. Using the “Jam” and “Verbat” models as benchmarks, we explore how organizations can create a captivating atmosphere for new recruits. And in an interesting twist, we redefine the notion of a billionaire. Corporate futurist Pete Dull suggests that a billionaire positively impacts a billion people’s lives. Let’s challenge ourselves to become billionaires in this revolutionary sense.
