Fluff or Foundation?

The good news and bad news of more hotels, restaurants and retailers opening in Winnipeg and throughout Manitoba is; there are more businesses competing for your customers!

Being competitive involves several things, including providing a good product at a reasonable price. It also involves providing consistent, exceptional, customer service delivered by a well trained staff.  
Some refer to customer service training as "fluff" training. We disagree. Customer Service is what will differentiate you from other businesses. It is what will keep your customers returning to your business, even when all of the new ones open. It is what should be the foundation of your business. It is what your staff should understand will keep them employed!

When business revenues lag, businesses sometimes need to lay-off their employees. You want your employees to know that they will benefit from your business being successful and what they can do to help build your business.
