Wilkes Barre, PA, August 09, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- In recent years, the “internal marketing” credo -- a company thrives when its employees’ thrive -- is a banner worn by many businesses. Long before this however, marketing guru and early blog author, Sybil Stershic of Quality Service Marketing, was leading the charge. To better inform e-commerce and other business entrepreneurs, the fulfillment company Karol Media engaged this former American Marketing Association Chair to discuss her craft.
The Internal Marketing interview with Stershic, available for reposting upon request, can be found at the Karol fulfillment website: http://karolmedia.wordpress.com

Excerpted from the Internal Marketing story:
Karol Media: “So, you say, as an 'essence' of your Quality Service Marketing specialty, that: 'if your employees don't feel valued, neither will your customers.” How often, even in this day and age, is this internal focus overlooked in Business?'
Stershic: “Talk about the ultimate question! The good news is the relationship between employee care and customer care is publicly acknowledged; the bad news is very few organizations are intentional in how they manage this relationship. The reasons for this disconnect range from 'benign neglect' (i.e., it's just one of many 'to do' items on an already long list) to considering employees as commodities. Scott Adams recognizes the latter thinking in his book, 'The Dilbert Principle,' when he lists 'Our employees are our greatest asset' as number one in the 'top ten management lies.' ”
