SunTrust’s Talent-Centric Approach to Executing a Customer Loyalty Strategy

The financial services industry has faced incredible challenges over the past few years. All in all, the nation’s banks are getting healthier, and the worst seems to be behind them — but they’re all struggling to find new sources of revenue amid a tougher regulatory environment.

In this market, the need to retain and grow clients has never been greater. While there are many ways to go about improving customer loyalty, corporate banking is a people business. In this industry, a customer loyalty strategy that does not address the effectiveness and behaviors of your people and the impact on the customer experience will likely fail.

SunTrust was able to evolve and deploy a client-centric culture that enabled their organization to display growth, improve client relationships, and enhance the talent and development of their sales managers and leaders. SunTrust’s strategic approach to a sales talent and sales training development program allowed their sales managers to link sales, service, and client loyalty while remaining committed to putting clients first.
