Rapid Action Team Results

Improving Account Retention with Rapid Action

Financial Services
A regional bank needed ideas to better engage new checking account customers to bring down rising attrition rates and increase cross-selling opportunities. Data indicated that 25% of new accounts were closed within their first 6 months of activation. A small team of employees across departments collaborated to improve onboarding procedures, resulting in nearly $68,000 of gains in the first year.


Inconsistent onboarding processes and low engagement with new checking account customers were driving high attrition rates for new accounts. Recent JD Power rankings highlighted this as a significant opportunity for improvement.

Team Engagement Strategy

A team of seven employees was assembled and equipped with Rapid Action, a toolkit for small problem solving teams.
