We have extensively discussed how to deal with high staff turnover in your optical practice. Employee engagement and recognition play a big role in helping combat turnover. Instituting an employee reward and recognition program is one easy way you can build a positive atmosphere in your office and increase your employee engagement.
Staff members who receive regular recognition and praise are more likely to:
- Increase their own personal productivity
- Increase engagement among their coworkers
- Stay with the practice longer
- And receive higher loyalty and satisfaction scores from patients
You may think that annual bonuses and/or raises are the only way to provide this recognition, but there are a few other creative ways to reward small and big wins. We found this great infographic from Officevibe that lists out 20 compelling ways to reward employees without spending any additional cash.
