Top 5 Ways to Authentically Keep Your Customers Loyal

A growing company should focus on both attracting and keeping customers. Learning a “focus on both” customer strategy is essential to sustainable growth and profitability. When a company is successful in executing this strategy, it reaps the benefits of retaining customers and increasing profits. However, customer behavior has changed dramatically because of social media platforms. Customer engagement needs to go beyond a “push marketing” to a “pull marketing” campaign that draws them in by telling compelling stories and addressing customer needs and interests on an ongoing basis.

Navigating a Tight Labor Market – Find. Retain. Augment.

A company’s ability to hire and retain talent has profound consequences for its capacity to grow its revenues and maintain a high level of customer service. In tight labor markets, not only is there a talent shortage, but as competition for skilled labor increases, so do wages and benefits. Coupled with remote, flexible or hybrid working policies, employees have more choices in the current workforce environment. Employee acquisition and retention is fast becoming a competitive differentiator.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s critical to track employee turnover and its root causes, including identifying who may be the most at risk to resign
  • The potential long-term effects of paying top dollar
  • Remote working scenarios that may work for you and your team
  • How to establish the right culture to attract and retain employees, and keep them from being poached

However, many dealers and integrators flourished during the pandemic, as they adapted to change and were aggressive in their approach to tackling the new normal. Profound and practical applications are being applied to innovative technology and services, especially as artificial intelligence and machine learning gain more acceptance. The delivery of security services is being affected by remote working models, cost of higher wages, reinvention of supply-chains, new applications of technology, and critical protection of information security.
