The Platinum Rule
Being a front end coordinator at Wegmans introduced me to a multitude of new experiences and ideas. If I had to choose one idea to take away and teach it to everyone across the world, it would be the platinum rule.
The common philosophy that many business owners hold is that of the golden rule. “Treat others as you would want to be treated”. This rule is taught to many young children in grade school as well as many adults later in life. It is this rule that many live their life, or run their business by, but I believe in something far greater.
The platinum rule states, “Treat others the way they want to be treated”. In order to provide the absolute best customer service a business must not think solely of what they believe to be the best experience, but instead, what the customer believes to be the best experience. By following this rule, businesses can increase customer retention by making them feel as if each transaction is tailored to their needs and not to the business itself.
