Knowledge Is Power by DoingCXRight

Want To Advance Your Career? Get CX Certified.

Delivering great customer experiences has become a top priority for many companies. Given the increased focus, employees with CX skills are in great demand. While on the job training and reading books provide great learnings, completing a formal CX certification program can accelerate one’s career.

Consequently, I decided to take my customer experience knowledge to the next level.  I explored a variety of programs that would expand my understanding of CX best practices and teach me new methodologies. After evaluating different schools, I chose Rutgers University.  

5 Reasons I Recommend Rutgers CX Certification Program

  • The course content is very relevant and applicable. Students gain access to helpful tools and templates that they can bring back to their jobs to make an impact.  
  • Classes are taught by top executives and leaders who share meaningful examples that reinforce the CX coursework. Topics include developing personas and journey maps, CX measurements, building a CX culture and more.
  • The program offers much flexibility. People can take the course online over 8 weeks, or offline in a classroom setting for 4 days.
  • Rutgers provides incredible networking opportunities. I met many smart people who have instituted successful customer-centric programs in their workplace. I loved all the knowledge sharing in and out of the classroom.
  • It is a real, university-backed program – not a seminar or conference.

Celebrate National CX Day

Did you know that tomorrow is National CX Day? Some of you may not even know what “CX” means or why there is a day to celebrate CX. CX stands for “Customer Experience,” and it has become an essential part of company strategies to win in the marketplace.

Like any Hallmark holiday, CX Day is an excuse to celebrate. More importantly, it serves as a day to raise awareness of something important that impacts ALL brands.  Every employee, from frontline to back office, impacts customer experiences and company perception.

For this reason, it is a great day to recognize employees who demonstrate a commitment to servicing customers and to let customers know how much you appreciate them. It’s all part of creating a CX culture!

How brands can celebrate National CX Day (or make it a CX month)?

  1. Leaders can send thank you notes to acknowledge employees who focus on DoingCXRight. Formally recognize those that go above and beyond to deliver great customer experiences.
  2. Throw a party and make it all about customers. Read their surveys out loud and celebrate the good ratings; collectively problem solve for lower scores. Do not let location be a reason not to celebrate. While in person is ideal, virtual meetings can be equally effective especially when leveraging video cameras.
  3. Partner with Marketing/ PR departments to raise awareness and commitment to CX. Leverage internal (i.e. company intranet) and external channels (i.e. social media) highlighting examples of how customers are valued by your brand. Use hashtags that your employees and customers could follow and reuse on social media channels to share stories with a larger audience.
  4. Encourage networking. Create opportunities for people to come together and share ways they contribute to the customer experience.
  5. Provide professional development to enable employees to increase their CX knowledge and apply best practices in their daily job. Take advantage of formal certification programs, attend events, such as RU-Disrupt, and online events offered by CXPA.
