Focusing on employee-centric strategy before being client-centric should be the key of every organisation's success. It seems most organisations have made clients their first priority instead of those serving the needs/wants of the clients. Customer advocacy is important but it begins with ensuring that the employees live and breathe the brand before any external stakeholder, which will result in customer satisfaction.

Employees can play a major role in acting as ambassadors of the organisation through an internal communications plan. Involved, valued employees are much happier at their work environment.
