#FutureFit Yourself: Stop manipulating NPS scores by incentivising your staff!

Yikes! How things have changed in business. I remember when HelloPeter came out many years ago. It was the go-to place for all of us to express our opinions online and vent about companies taking advantage of us and delivering appalling service.
