Dangle reward for four weeks of fine work.
As April begins, meet with key employees and discuss production goals for the coming month. Set ambitious 30-day targets so that workers push a bit harder.
Offer to recognize their superior effort and results by promising valuable prizes at month’s end if they meet measurable outputs. Dangle a choice of luxurious gifts, such as fine wine or spa treatments, and let them pick their favorite. This way, they’ll stay motivated as they pursue their coveted reward.
Review training materials to ensure clarity.
Training depends on both the quality of the instructor and the usefulness of the handouts. In April, audit takeaway materials to ensure the content is clear and easy to apply.
Written supplements to any skill-based training should consist of bulleted lists and numbered to-do items. If trainers distribute thick, text-heavy booklets, recipients will probably shove them in a drawer. Instead, distribute concise, action-oriented worksheets.
Conduct a “security ?refresher” to guard data.
Employees who protect their personal data at home may let down their guard at work. Remind staffers to keep their workspace free of sensitive or proprietary material to prevent prying visitors from accessing private data.
Warn everyone not to reveal personal information to callers or visitors they don’t know. Scammers can follow employees through a secure entrance and, once inside, steal info to commit identity theft.
