We are in the midst of a global productivity crisis. The IMF estimates that if productivity growth had followed its pre-2008 financial crisis trend, overall GDP in advanced economies would be about 5% higher today. However, to blame everything on the financial crisis is misleading. The overall trend in productivity growth is stagnant and has been on a downward trend for the last several years.
This is costing the U.S. a staggering $450–$550 billion a year. In the U.K., concern is such that there have been calls for the government to set new targets and create an independent watchdog to monitor progress to improve national productivity.
There is also a workforce engagement crisis. Most people are simply not engaged at work, with industry research showing that typically 66% of people are either partly or not engaged at all at work. This means that only 1 in 3 people at work are fully motivated and productive.
Yet most companies are oblivious to this fact. Some run annual emplo

Technology is empowering today’s consumers like never before. Consumers are getting used to buying, communicating and interacting with service providers whenever and however they want. Downtime is unacceptable and as a result broadband and telco providers are constantly put to the test with regards to customer service. There is an enormous disconnect between what customers expect and what broadband and telco providers are actually providing. All customers want to be understood as individuals, but this need is not always being met. Moving forward, broadband and telco providers need to differentiate themselves and provide innovative solutions in order retain as well as gain new customers. It is no surprise that nearly half of broadband/Telco providers believe customer service is a critical competitive differentiator. Download this research study and learn how broadband and telco providers can improve customer service.

And while in most cases banks are delivering satisfactory customer service to their clients, they are missing key opportunities to provide deeper personalization. With nearly one in four consumers saying they would start looking for a new bank if they received poor customer service, banks need to evolve with their customers and always be looking at innovative ways to communicate and service them more efficiently. Download this research study and get a deeper understanding of the challenges facing today’s banks and the technology solutions they must embrace to keep pace with consumer demands.
It is no secret banks are losing customers, and fast. A recent Finextra/Pegasystems survey pegs that 78% of banks have lost business in the last 12 months. The question is “Why?”. It all comes down to engaging with customers before, during and even after the sales process. Nearly all banks are struggling with the impact of client due diligence and KYC (know your customer) regulation on their onboarding processes, and are painfully aware that lack of speed, process visibility and repeat data requests are frustrating their corporate customers. The same holds true for service, where corporates are crying out for improvement, as well as omni-channel access and quick turnaround of service requests and inquiries. To stop the sales decline, banks need to begin doing all these things well. They will then be more competitive in the market as well as retain and win new business.
