WORK ETHICS

"The customer is always right." This tried and true expression is still the best. Customers should be greeted with a smile and always treated politely. It is advisable to acknowledge the customer by saying: "Good morning./Good afternoon./Hi...how are you?/Have you been looked after?/Have you been served?/May I help you?". Never greet a customer with, "What do you want?" or stand and stare at a customer without offering any assistance. If you are very busy, you can still take a moment to address them by saying, "I'll be right with you."
