Some of the key takeaways included:

  • A multi-channel approach is crucial given the audience ranges from Millennials to Baby Boomers, as well as the vast amount of new technology available. This includes everything from face-to-face conversations to phone or online chat to full self-service, in any combination.
  • Overwhelmed HR departments and a growing appetite for control are driving employee self-serve initiatives and, in fact, are often the default expectation of the Millennial generation.
  • Enormous cost-savings, customer delight and increased bandwidth are achievable with a solid implementation plan and effective technology.
  • Effective employee communication strategies make the difference.

CodeBaby’s CEO, Dennis McGuire was invited to, and participated on, the panel.
