CX, or customer experience, is a well-established business discipline. But now we are in the era of COVID, with widespread home confinement and fear of contagion. Accordingly, the meaning of CX is evolving rapidly. Trust, digital connection, both physical and digital security, and even empathy are newly-reinforced elements in what it means to give customers a satisfying and positive experience.

To understand better how exactly companies are rethinking relationships with customers, Techonomy brought together three top thinkers for a discussion: Kahly Berg, CEO of full-service marketing agency and consultancy Rational; Eric Chaniot, global chief digital officer for Michelin, and Raj Kohli, president of Wipro Digital, who also oversees Wipro’s consulting for companies around the world. Wipro partnered with Techonomy for the session.

If you are back to work full time, you will no longer receive jobless benefits. If you are back to work part-time, you can receive partial unemployment insurance which should include the extra $600 … Read More

As Premieres Go Virtual, They Create New Rules For Celebrity VIPs

Click here to read the full article.

Red carpets remain rolled up; theater reopenings are uncertain. And if you’re a publicist responsible for touting the latest in VOD, that means redefining success. Their goals are the same — make people want to see the movie or TV show and raise the profile of the project — but what does that look like when themed premieres and Instagram moments are nonstarters?

“Since social media results are the most salient ROI for virtual events, we’ve adjusted our lists slightly to focus more on filmmakers and influencers who have a voice on social media,” said Darin Pfeiffer of Pfeiffer Consulting. “While there are of course key tastemakers like Paul Thomas Anderson who aren’t on social media that we’ll always invite, we’ve definitely given priority to those who have a productive voice on social media.”

From Women’s Health

Netflix’s latest true crime TV show, Unsolved Mysteries, has become an instant hit on the streaming network since it debuted on July 1. Devoted fans of the six-episode series have transformed themselves into amateur internet sleuths, taking to online forums like Reddit to discuss episodes, provide additional context, and of course, share their conspiracy theories.

Many such theories have emerged in the subreddit r/UnsolvedMysteries after Reddit users watched the third episode, called “House of Terrors,” which tells the story of a French aristocratic family that was brutally murdered in the town of Nantes. The crime occurred in April 2011 when French police discovered the wife and four children of Count Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès buried under the back porch of their home. The only member not found? Count Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès himself. He’s suspected of committing the crime, but disappeared after

Visa Makes Payment Easy in Asia Pacific With Click to Pay

Visa Inc. V has expanded its click-to-pay feature in the Asia Pacific, which offers online shoppers an online checkout option that is fast, simple and secure.

The click-to-pay facility is built on the EMV Secure Remote Commerce (SRC) industry specification, accessible to the participating Australian and New Zealand businesses.

The service will be extended gradually to other regions, such as Hong Kong, Mainland China, Malaysia and Singapore, later in the year.

The launch of this service comes at just the opportune time when e-commerce saw a surge due to the COVID-19 outbreak. In order to follow strict lockdown and social-distancing protocols, people avoided shopping via bricks-and-mortar stores and stuck more to purchasing stuff online, which in turn, drove the need for digital payments. With 41% of consumers in the Asia Pacific belt making five or more e-commerce transactions in the past three months will make the click-to-pay feature a big

How Fast Is Too Fast Where Fashion Is Concerned?

(Bloomberg Opinion) — Fast-fashion trailblazer Boohoo Group Plc is being forced to slow down.

Retailers including Amazon.com Plc, Next Plc and Asos Plc are dropping Boohoo products after a Sunday Times article alleged unfair working conditions in its U.K. manufacturing chain in Leicester, England. The company came under criticism from social influencers including former reality TV star Vas J Morgan and model Jayde Pierce. #Boycottboohoo has been trending on Twitter.

After losing 2 billion pounds ($2.5 billion) in market value this week, Boohoo said on Wednesday it’s launching an independent review of its supply chain led by Alison Levitt, a lawyer and former public prosecutor. It also cut ties with two suppliers that infringed on its code of conduct, but said there were inaccuracies in the newspaper report.

Even though the investigation will not be completed for some time, the fast-growing company, founded in 2006 to make cheap, catwalk-inspired fashions

6 Work-From-Home Myths You Should Stop Believing Now

Despite years of research that shows workers are, in fact, competent and capable grown-ups who can get work done at home, a lot of people still seem very worried about the idea.

The prospect of working from home — whether because your company is shuttered for the pandemic or your dream job happens to be in another state — conjures images of distracted loners and freeloaders wasting company time.

I’ve been working from home in some form for a decade, and I can attest this is not what it’s about.

Working from home is a wonderful gift technology has given us, one that lets us find the jobs we want, no matter where we live; live the lives we want, no matter what we do for work; and make money on our own terms.

In support of my ongoing quest to turn more workers and employers on to the joys … Read More
