The debate has raged for years: whether customers or employees should “come first”? Apart from the obvious response that both are essential to a successful enterprise, achieving the balance in a professional services firm that services clients around the world can be a challenging proposition.
We are extremely lucky at Gas Strategies to have a team that is strongly committed to looking after our clients – where the team puts the clients first.
Last week end we were delighted to have the opportunity to put our staff first on our Gas Strategies team ski long- weekend. Yes, there was a drop out at the last minute to ensure that a pressing client priority was addressed. There was also that early alarm call on Sunday morning to get a 3½ hour transit to an airport to get to a client meeting which arose during the weekend. At the end of the day we choose how to achieve balance.
Thank you to all the team for making it such a great weekend – and to our clients who recognise that “all work and no play” would make us less bright and energetic than the firm that they choose to serve them.
