‘It’s a great day,’ not to be in prison

Sep 27, 2011 5:02:00 PM - thestate.com
Gov. Nikki Haley wants state workers to answer their phones, saying, “It’s a great day in South Carolina. How can I help you?”

Tuesday, Haley instructed the directors of Cabinet agencies, which report to her, to change the way their employees answer the phones.

Haley said the change will boost the morale of state workers, remind them they work for the callers on the other end of the line and help her sell the state to employers.

“It’s part of who I am,” Haley said. “As hokey as some people may think it is, I’m selling South Carolina as this great, new, positive state that everybody needs to look at.”

Among the state agencies that are part of Haley’s cabinet is the state’s prison system. Others include commerce, education, public safety and health.
