Example text

Customers who know that their needs are going to be met are usually satisfied customers; however, as Janet Lapp (1996) points out, cynicism has developed among customers about what to expect from organizations. Many customers have low expectations about the ability of organizations to do what they say they will do or to be different from their competitors in a meaningful way. In order to be successful, organizations should be looking for ways to build strong, solid reputations for delivery and working to sustain the loyalty of their customers.

Because we are often interested in the quantities related to a diversity outcome, numerical representation is important; however, we are not interested in just any quantities—we want the quantities to have meaning. 5 on a 5-point scale is numerical does not have much inherent meaning. 5 good or bad? Or consider an employee turnover rate of 15 percent. Percentage points have more inherent meaning than 5-point scales, but simply observing the number does not reveal much about whether 15 percent is a problem.

Some diversity specialists perceive that an inherent conflict exists between what is good for business and what is good for people. Some others believe, like truth, that the real reward is in the work itself. The words used to describe the results often include terms such as working better, appreciating differences, understanding each other better, less conflict, getting along, working as a team, and other similar non-measurement-specific words. Although these are admirable aims in themselves, they are not enough, especially when organizations are looking for strategies to deal with increased competition, options for reducing cost, adding value, adding dollars, and increasing productivity to affect the bottom line.
