HOW TO KEEP YOUR AGENTS MOTIVATED THIS SPRING AND SUMMER!
Being in an office all day can take its toll on staff and they can start to lose concentration – especially in sunny months! So now that that we are coming to our favourite time of year, we’ve put together some top tips to keep your agents motivated during the warmer weather!
1. SPRING/SUMMER THEMED INCENTIVES & PRIZES
A great way to keep your agents motivated is to reward them! It’s good to run incentives throughout the year regardless of the heat, but when it comes to spring and summer why not give your incentives a twist and make them seasonally themed?
At RSVP, we run a ‘Grow Your Own’ incentive every spring/summer. Agents compete in teams to grow their own flowers throughout the sunnier months. Incentives like this are really easy to run and they keep agents competitive!
Give your agents seasonally themed prizes as well; ice lollies, over-sized sunglasses,
floppy hats, even an extended lunch break so they can enjoy the sun!
2. GIVE THE OFFICE A MINI MAKEOVER
Spruce up the office by giving it a summery look. This doesn’t have to cost a lot; you can buy flowers and colourful plants (and even blow up palm trees for fun!
This will make the office much brighter and your agents will naturally be happier to be there.
Also get your agents to bring in their holiday snaps so you can create a montage on the wall!
3. HAVE FUN!
At RSVP, we have Fun Fridays, our agents have some time to relax and have fun - our Account Managers will usually host a quiz or a fun game, our staff get a free alcoholic drink (and sometimes pizza!) but most importantly, this gives them the opportunity to bond at work. A lot of close friendships have been made
By doing this and it makes the office a much more friendly, enjoyable place to be.
Again, rewarding your agents is very important. But this doesn’t have to be done by giving them money! They will appreciate working in a bright, summery environment where they can enjoy each other’s company. Show your agents you value them and they will do the same for you!
Above all it is important to remember that when it’s nice outside it is even more important to make it nice inside! It’s the small things that count so don’t forget to be creative!
