T-Mobile, Calling the frontline
Short listed in the Marketing category
Changing employee behaviour is never easy. This is especially true when you are attempting to change the behaviour of 4000 front-line employees across the UK. Deloitte worked with T-Mobile to achieve such a goal. Developing a high performance culture, to improve what customers thought of T-Mobile and engage employees so making it a better place to work. We brought a focused approach to culture change at T-Mobile, moving away from a top down values led programme to targeting what really mattered and embedding the changes in behaviour that could really make a difference to performance.
The programme delivered significant improvements in customer satisfaction and employee engagement, increases in in-store purchases and behavioural changes in the frontline. This is also a story continuing to unfold, with roll-out of the programme underway across T-Mobile international within Germany, Austria and the Netherlands.
The mobile market is crowded and fiercely competitive but it is also reaching new levels of maturity with over 100% saturation. T-Mobile recognised they needed to respond to a market no longer characterised by the high growth that had previously prevailed. Although T-Mobile would continue to fight on price to attract new customers, it recognised with falling margins, this was not the answer to sustainable growth.
