How to become the employer of choice: Jill Raff, EX2CX™ Expert

Jill is a globally recognized EX2CX™ expert who helps organizations create new systems and procedures to develop the strong cultures that drive higher retention and greater productivity.

The EX is Employee Experience and CX is Customer Experience. This conversation centers much more on the employee experience and how focusing efforts here will almost certainly take care of the CX part of your business.

Jill shares her perspective on company culture, why it can be so hard to make the reality on the ground look like what is written in countless company documents, how to find gaps in reality vs. expectation and much much more.

This episode tries to give some insight into where leadership efforts should be placed as virtually everyone in hospitality is dealing with some level of staffing challenge. As they say, the best recruiting strategy is a retention strategy, and improving retention is to make sure there is alignment of expectations up and down the chain.
