Your team is the fuel that keeps the engine running! As we head into fall and salon business picks up, it’s the perfect time to get your team on board and show your appreciation. Try one (or all!) of these instantly gratifying ways to bring good energy and increase team spirit in your salon.
Reward your staff with a bonus tip each week. Choose an employee to give a well-deserved, $50 dollar tip to celebrate their hard work. It can be whoever made a difference, supported their colleagues, sold the most retail, or simply kept their cool during a hectic day.
Showcasing your team is an inexpensive and worthwhile way to engage your guests, strengthen relationships and give your best stylists a voice. Launch this fun incentive where a different stylist will be featured online each month of the year. Give back to your team and help them build their personal brand!
Seemingly a thing of the past, this classic method for showing appreciation can make your staff feel special. Ensure that your notes are specific: include why you are recognizing them and how they made a difference.
The Wish List
Be your team’s fairy godmother and make their wishes come true. Leave a stack of blank cards next to a “wish box” where staff members can make a request. At the end of the week, grant one of the wishes from the box. Be the hero and make someone’s day!
