Shawn Dahl elaborates on his ideas of how a company can be honest in its dealings.
VANCOUVER, BC, December 21, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — It can be challenging to run a business that is able to take pride in its honesty and transparency, but it is incredibly important to try. Shawn Dahl, who has been a key partner in companies such as Rainwater Development Group and Store Space, shares his outlook on what it means to be honest as a business and some tips on how business owners can take steps to make honesty a priority for their companies.
Why Should a Business Strive for Honesty?
There are many reasons that a business should be honest in its dealings and project an identity that resonates strongly with the ideals of accountability and trustworthiness. When a company prioritizes honesty in every way with its policies and daily operations, it shows. People want to deal with companies that they know will operate with their best interests in mind. Honesty sets the tone for a company’s work culture and can attract more (and better) employees, it builds customer loyalty, and it builds trust with a community.
Repeat business is one of the best ways for a company to get ahead. When you can fall back on a past relationship, you don’t need to build bonds of trust and set expectations every time that you interact with a client and that time can be spent simply working together. People that trust in a business will go out of their way to praise it and bring in more customers, making honesty one of the most effective marketing strategies in which a business can engage.
How to Be Honest in Business
There are many ways that a business can establish a policy of honesty as a top priority. Some points to focus on as you conduct your business include:
1. Transparent Operations
Nothing makes customers question a company’s honesty more than when it attempts to hide aspects of its operation. Being open and honest with a customer about how work gets done, where supplies come from, how things are priced, and any other aspect of a company’s operation makes the customer feel trusted and helps them to trust the company in return. This does not necessarily mean that all of a company’s operations need to be projected for the world to see, but being able to answer questions honestly when asked can go a long way.
2. Keep Commitments
When a business and its operatives do what they say they will do, it is appreciated by customers greatly. Delivering on promises and being where you say you will be will ensure that customers feel like they can trust you.
3. Honor Your Community and Environment
When a company pays attention to its surroundings and helps it to thrive, it shows that it is in business to do more than make a quick buck. Companies can care for communities through a variety of services, charities, and initiatives, and engaging with the community and environment displays integrity and care.
4. Do Honest Work
Cutting corners or skimping on work quality in any way will usually be visible to customers. Trying to fake results through any method can be catastrophic to a business’ reputation if it is found out, and it is best to simply do the right thing whenever possible.
It is Shawn Dahl’s firm belief that honesty will always win out and help a person to stay ahead in life and business. When a person is honest in their business dealings, it allows them to do their work without fear and live and work simply and safely.
