How bank employees treat customers remains one of the most important yardsticks that people use to rank a business, and that means banks need to balance this traditional element with new technological developments.
My Comment: This is a customer service article about banks. I’m willing to bet that just about all of have a bank account. So, we can relate to the ideas shared in this article.
