Thanks to Guardian.co.uk I recently heard about the Japanese train company that is scanning its employees to make sure they smile properly.
What an extraordinary story.
Okay, I am a great believer that customer facing employees in any organisation should be delivering experiences that delight shoppers/users/passengers.
However, I don’t think that a smile scanner is the answer.
I think this Japanese company should provide training that guides and inspires their employees to deliver positive experiences every day, in a way that will genuinely WOW its passengers
