Shep Hyken interviews Alex Ross, co-founder and chief operating officer of Hire Horatio. He talks about leveraging customer experience as a competitive advantage and creating a work environment that employees love (beyond the paycheck).
“Around 2019 and 2020, everybody just wanted to see top-line growth. It was all about numbers and revenue. Now, investors are looking at retention and customer lifetime value, which all start with customer experience.”
“Paying above the market is certainly something that we do. But that doesn’t get the job done entirely. We ensure our employees do fulfilling work, provide great growth opportunities, and build a community.”
“At the end of the day, people want to be a part of something. They want to be a part of a mission. They want to be part of a goal. You make it a community when you can facilitate the right environment and office structure. All of that together, you start to make it more than just work.”
“Be about value, not just dollars. In today’s world, an amazing customer experience makes you competitive. Price is important, but an amazing customer experience can differentiate a brand from its competitors.”
“People at your company, other than leadership, should have a seat ‘at the table.’ They are critical to designing products, how things should flow, and determining what’s working for customers and what’s not. And too often, they’re excluded from conversations.”
Alex Ross is the co-founder and chief operating officer of Hire Horatio. He works with startups, providing them with invaluable customer support and back-office functions.
