If You Take Care of Your Employees, They Will Take Care of Your Customers
The primary way to reach employees and to create a positive environment for them is by recognizing their abilities and nurturing their well-being on multiple levels: health, education, and welfare. Treating employees with respect and dignity results in them doing the same for your customers/patients.
