Which comes first: EX or CX? Research shows that companies that excel at customer service have more engaged employees, who in turn are more connected and motivated to deliver better customer outcomes. Join us for a lunchtime discussion on innovative strategies to inspire and empower employees to deliver an experience that wows their customers and strengthens the bottom line.

Pre Work

We encourage all attendees to prepare for this Innovation Series Lunch by thinking through the intersection of employee experience and customer experience in the broader strategic context, and how together EX and CX can drive profitability and performance.


The goal of this particular Innovation Series Lunch is to provide a discussion that will inspire and empower participants to deliver standout results to their customers, employees and broader stakeholders.
