This job wasn’t as advertised

this job wasn't as advertisedIt was getting on in the evening a few nights ago when my phone started chirping. Someone was texting. I picked up the phone to find a text from Jack. He was desperately trying to reach Mike to have a call. I don’t know Jack or Mike. It was a wrong number. The next text came fast. Jack’s new job was not what it was advertised to be and he wanted Mike to bring him back to his former employer.

Unfortunately this situation happens all too often. A person starts a new job, excited for their new opportunity. Many times believing the pasture is greener with the new employer. This type of situation highlights the need to understand how people experience your company. Whether as an employee or a customer, you only get one chance to make a first impression with people. How are making sure people are delighted with their experience with you?
