The scriptures are filled with verse after verse about goodness, honesty, and truthfulness. I believe that we must take it one step further and make honesty the only policy. To make it work, we must be honest with ourselves, our coworkers, and our customers.

Apply The Golden Rule To Customer Service

As the manager of a technical call center, I constantly emphasize to my team the importance of customer service. The key to customer service is the way we treat the customer.

These problems are nothing new. Paul saw it in his day, and in the sixth chapter of his letter to the church at Ephesus, he gives advice to the Christian worker.
