Why Commitment to Customers Matters
Great customer service is of the utmost importance when it comes to running and growing your business. It is also a mark of respect to treat your customers fairly and deal appropriately with complaints.
In a competitive environment good customer service will give your business an advantage. We live in an age where people communicate widely and publicly with others, and businesses receiving comments of good or poor service on social media and review websites like Trustpilot, can make a huge difference to their sales and bottom line.
Our Stance on – Responsible Pricing
The current economic environment is amongst the most challenging for businesses in recent memory. A triple threat of distribution problems, labour shortages and inflationary pressures – particularly energy – have all contributed to rising costs for businesses. For working people, living standards are under pressure as prices of many goods and services rise.
Against this backdrop, the Good Business Charter expects all of its accredited organisations to follow responsible pricing, and rejects the practice of profiteering, whereby firms make excessive profits out of people’s needs, especially in times of scarcity.
Profiteering is both unethical, and deeply damaging to business’s reputational value as a force for good, and therefore not compatible with the standards and expectations of the Good Business Charter.
