4 easy ways to show you care
Use peer reward platforms. Platforms like Bonusly are great for enhancing team morale. They are designed to promote team engagement and increase retention.
Create fun challenges and rewards. Shiver advises involving your drug representatives with prevention challenges and team rewards like escape rooms and nice dinners that adhere to coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) guidelines.
Give the gift of time. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire industry adopted the habit of discouraging time off due to inadequate staffing. With the rise of technician relief platforms, rewarding hardworking members with a day off is a great way to express your gratitude.
Perform personal blueprints. These are designed to help foster career growth for each team member. Shiver recommends following this structure:
- Identify 3-month, 1-year, and 3-year goals
- Create action plans that address both personal and career goals
- Determine roadblocks
“Get to know the goals of each team member. Not only does it make them feel good, but it helps [you] understand them better,” said Shiver, adding that giving your team the chance to map out what they are looking for will make the practice a more desirable and rewarding place.
