Customer Service is a Privilege
Getting team members to understand customer service facts
Serving customers is not a punishment; it is a privilege. That's how I want my team members to think. Customers form the foundation of how my employees make money to support their families. The more delighted customers we have, the more opportunities my team members have to take care of the people most important to them. That's why we never stop talking about customer service. Here are some tools we use to continually remind our team about how important the customer is to all of us.
