Creating a CX Driven Culture for Retail Banking

An expert opinion podcast with John Berry, Senior Advisor and Cultural Change & Transformation Expert and Poyraz Ozkan, Co-Founder of Alterna CX

According to  Gartner, 89% of companies are now competing primarily based on customer experience. Major tech companies like Amazon, Apple, and Google are at the forefront when it comes to delivering superior customer experience. These companies are now introducing financial products and services and expanding into the banking industry.

Today’s banks are competing not only with other banks but also with these major technology firms.  To succeed, banks need to constantly innovate in products and channels and transform their way of working. All of this requires building a customer-centric culture into the DNA of the bank. The banks that can build such a customer-centric culture inside their organization will become the banks of the future.

In this Podcast, together with our speakers, John Berry and Poyraz Ozkan, we discussed how leaders can transform their culture to become more customer-centric. Here are some of our discussion topics:

  • Challenges faced by retail banks when it comes to customer-centric transformation
  • Learnings and best practices from banks in delivering exceptional customer experiences around the world
  • Methodology and metrics to implement customer-centric transformation
