On the morning of August 20, 2015, Prime Therapeutic’s creative director, Molly Sullivan, and her design team gave a behind-the-scenes look at how they helped evolve their company’s culture with their interactive Customer Experience Room.
Changing a company with an operational business focus into one with an equally strong consumer focus isn’t easy. Winning employee buy-in is a critical step in this somewhat disruptive process. How did Prime, a pharmacy benefit manager, convince its 3,500 employees that their main customers weren’t just health plans—but also 26 million very real members? By putting their employees in their members’ shoes. Through innovative design, they enabled everyone from customer service reps to senior leaders to clients to see, hear and feel what members experience when interacting with Prime.
During this event, Prime’s design team walked us through the project from concepts to finished product. They partnered with their customer experience team to design an immersive experience that brought Prime’s purpose and mission to life. Their design helped employees understand the pain points of the past and solutions for the future. This smart design led to increased employee engagement and improved member satisfaction.
After the presentation, Prime invited attendees into their workspace for more visuals, food, and a chance to talk one-on-one with the design and production team and also the customer experience team.
