What are the milestones you celebrate in your business? Is it meeting a sales goal? Is it when you receive praise from one of your customers? Is it personal accomplishments as you watch a team member better themselves? Are you celebrating loyalty among your employees?
There are thousands of ways to celebrate. The main categories I find are . . .
- Customer satisfaction
- Individual/Team performance
It may take a shift in the way you relate to your employees. Rewarding your employees can be in the form of public recognition among their peers. You can treat them to a fancy dinner. It can also be a kind word when you witness a team member going above and beyond what is expected of them.
Sometimes, a simple thank you is all that is necessary. But if you would like to treat me to a steak dinner, I’m game!
