Naturally, they develop a good chemistry in a working environment. This would return in more loyalty from employees. They would be more productive and satisfied with their company, which is somewhat difficult to attain in big businesses because people don’t know their colleagues in different departments.

This will help you attract more customers and help you shape your priorities regarding quality and services.
