Don’t you just love all those car ads promoting consumer pricing based on employee discounts? (“You pay what our employees pay!”)
Treating customers like employees … an interesting concept.
Ponder this (if you dare)
Let’s take it beyond sales promotion for a moment. Here’s an interesting question for you to consider: What would be the impact on your customers if they really were treated like employees of your organization?
The answer depends on your organization. If you and your colleagues can respond positively, you’re among the fortunate.
If your answer is anything less than positive, my heart goes out to you (and your fellow employees and your customers). In this case, if you’re able to explore other options, here’s my advice (with apologies to Lee Iacocca): If you can find a better deal with another employer, take it!
