As a Practice Owner life is busy, especially those of you that are dentist-owners, you spend all day looking after patients and most your free time keeping on top of the business all the while trying to juggle a personal life. It's no surprise that many of us fail to remember or simply overlook the little things when it comes to our team.
It's these little things that can make all the difference when retaining your dream team. By remembering to recognise the small things your team will feel more valued and you will be fostering a culture of team work, commitment, loyalty and gratitude.
Last week I celebrated a 25 year workiversary at one of my clients practices, it's a practice that I have been proud to be involved with for the past 9 years and I must say they have it sussed in terms of valuing their people! This is shown not only by the amazing family culture within the team but also by the practices ability to retain good people with the majority of the workforce having been a part of the team for 10 years or more!
Celebrate birthdays, workiversaries, special occasions, life events, major milestones and anything else worth celebrating! It doesn't have to be elaborate, a card and a small gift are great (wine, chocolates, vouchers, flowers- just something simple), put on a celebratory lunch for the team (with cake of course). Get everyone involved, most people love a bit of party planning and it can be a great way to bring the team together on something other than work! You can also document these events and make them content for your social media! I can guarantee these posts will receive way more engagement than anything else you put on your feed!
