People don’t buy products, they buy people. This old business adage might not be as true as it used to be because there is less face to face customer interaction these days. However, it is still useful advice. It’s true that customers are going to choose based on product, to begin with, but it’s the personality of the business and its employees that will keep them coming back time and time again. That’s why it’s important to inject a little bit of your own personality into the business. You might be thinking that it’s harder to do that now because so many of your sales are online and the customer never comes face to face with you, but social media has filled that void.

If you think your company is a bit stale, try these tips to help your personality come through in all of your business interactions.

There is no denying the relationship between employee satisfaction and business productivity. The industry leaders such as Apple, Google, and Facebook, grasped this concept many years ago. Ideas that were dismissed as wacky or off the wall are now accepted as main stream methods in office organization and design.
Two decades ago, offices were constructed around a rigid design and were sterile and austere places to work. Open plan working was in fashion but that left nowhere for private meetings and sensitive conversations. Workers were in each other’s faces throughout the working day and that did not suit everyone.
