When working in a service industry it pays do everything to be as accommodating as possible, this means covering the smallest details to ensure the greatest experience for your customers.

Once you have developed your inclusive culture and each member of staff is treated fairly and as an equal your staff will be proud to wear a name badge with their name, and the company they represent. This element of pride can actively result in a better customer service as your staff are motivated to work heard as they believe in the cause.

An additional aspect of this is the accountability, as staff who are motivated and feel included are more likely to admit to a mistake has been made as the culture reduces consequence, seeing mistakes as opportunities to learn and progress together.
