The satisfaction of its customers is not a negotiable objective of any business. Customers' satisfaction as a goal is necessary to keep the sales going.
To maintain customers' loyalty and encourage them to keep buying a product, they must be fairly treated through affordable prices, the convenience of buying good packages, information and education, product quality and performance and different forms of rewards for patronizing a business.

Such offerings that can be extended to employees include good salaries and wages, recognition, training, respect from senior officers, good tools and work environment.
