When companies are going through a rough patch and business is not doing well, the first casualties are usually the workers who have their salaries reduced or are sacked outright.
But when customers are happy with the company and continue patronizing their products, sales will go up and ultimately profits increases. This in the long run keeps the companies afloat and they will be able to keep their workers happy and their jobs safe. They can increase salaries, offer bonuses and a better welfare package.
Another good side to this is that it reduces the possibility of the workers resigning and leaving the company as they are happy with the working environment and their morale is very high. They have no fear and pressure to perform their duties and are relaxed and able to concentrate on their duties effectively.
