An exclusive, live webinar from Social Media Today
Jan 10th at 1pm EST / 10am PST
Can your company reap tangible rewards by practicing an empathetic approach to customer relationships? We have all likely heard about the importance of empathy in business and with customers – but many corporate leaders don’t see this mindset as essential to profits.
Join us as we drill deep to determine and begin to measure the concrete rewards available for groups that put themselves in their customers’ place to understand their needs. We’ll explore the ways to get to an empathetic mindset infused into your company culture. Our panelists will begin by defining what empathy means in business, and how it applies to areas including marketing, customer service, information technology, and even product design:
- Why is empathy important?
- Is there a way to measure empathy or its rewards?
- How can you make a business case within your company for the value of fostering an empathetic culture?
- How does a company put empathy into action in all it does?
