This will be our third year celebrating CX Day. Just like last year we have turned this into a week long celebration to honor our customers and our employees that serve them everyday.
We will kick the week off with a parade to celebrate. Everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite super hero gear because we are all heroes.
We will have an employee appreciation lunch and later in the week a happy hour event complete with appetizers and creative mocktails, named after customers and our lines of business.
Other small events will include popcorn and cotton candy being available and candy stations throughout the office.
This has a been a great way for us increase awareness of how important CX is and to acknowledge that our employees make great experiences happen every day!

For Confirmit, there were a few hyperlinked items. Here is the text with the links where they need to be.
- We are joining in by launching a <new microsite> which showcases some of our content. And it has a theme…I’m too CX-EE for my shirt….
- This is a fun – and decidedly tongue-in-cheek way to bring together Customer Experience (CX) and Employee Engagement (EE) topics. <The site> includes:
- A themed article with plenty of CX-EE themed puns to hopefully engage our audiences while providing some great thought leadership around building a successful CX team
- Some of our latest and greatest CX material including videos and case studies
- Updated lyrics to the original “I’m too sexy for my shirt” song to give them a more CX-EE spin…
- We has special buttons and t-shirts made to support the theme and shared these with our employees, customers and other CX pros at events around the globe.
- Shared the following message with our employees:
- Remember, CX Day is not just for the CX teams, it’s a chance to get in touch with our customers and make them feel valued. Think of CX Day not as a day, but as a mindset. This means it’s not just for the CX teams, it’s important for our market research clients as well
Global celebration of our commitment to our customers and to our team members, who are the heart and soul of our customers experience. We will have celebrations spanning 20 countries and 6 continents, anchored by a global live stream from Round Rock Texas on October 2nd, including a kick off our Chief Customer Officer Karen Quintos.
