Employee Engagement is Important to your Success

Are your employees motivated when they come to work?

We cannot control the way an employee feels at work. We cannot demand engagement, job satisfaction, or motivation in the workplace. But investing in employee engagement, your company will be able to increase productivity, work quality, and retain top talent. Have you asked yourself or noticed, are your employees motivated when they come into work?

BEFORE STARTING YOUR DAY

Before we go into work, we need to come in with a fresh and positive attitude. When we leave our home, sometimes things happen. Our whole mindset can change immediately. The kids may have been a handful in the morning, you argued before you left home with your partner, someone cut you off in traffic, or there’s even traffic and now you are late to work. The list can go on. I have been there.

When you come into work your staff or employees notice it immediately. You know the saying. “You never know what someone is going through.”Asking an employee or even your boss, “Is everything ok” works wonders. My former boss and I would vent about something and after we would laugh and say, “that feels much better” and continue our day. No matter what happens before you start your day at work, you have the “POWER” to change and go in with a “Positive and Happy” emotion. Going around the office with a bad attitude will not solve anything.

Stop, breathe and Change your Mindset.

meditation
  • Go to a room where you will not be interrupted for 10-15 minutes.
  • If you choose to visualize on your own, think of a restful place you have enjoyed or would like to visit. Picture it in your mind. Imagine how you would experience it through each of your senses. Hold that visualization for several minutes.
  • Take a few slow and deep breaths to center your attention and calm yourself.
  • Close your eyes.
  • Imagine yourself in a beautiful location, where everything is as you would ideally have it. Some people visualize a beach, a mountain, a forest, or a being in a favorite room sitting on a favorite chair.
  • Imagine yourself becoming calm and relaxed. Alternatively, imagine yourself smiling, feeling happy, and having an enjoyable time.
  • Focus on the different sensory attributes present in your scene to make it more vivid in your mind. For instance, if you are imagining the beach, spend some time vividly imagining the warmth of the sun on your skin, the smell of the ocean, seaweed, and salt spray, and the sound of the waves, wind, and seagulls. The more you can invoke your senses, the more vivid the entire image will become.
  • Remain within your scene, touring its various sensory aspects for five to ten minutes or until you feel relaxed.
  • While relaxed, assure yourself that you can return to this place whenever you want or need to relax.
  • Open your eyes again and then rejoin your world!

Branding Your Business

Elements of a Brand

Your Brand is Your Reputation 

Brand identity is the collection of all elements that a company creates to portray the right image to its consumer. Brand identity is different from “brand image” and “branding,” even though these terms are sometimes treated as interchangeable. The term branding refers to the marketing practice of actively shaping a distinctive brand. It is the perception of the company in the eyes of the world. Your brand tells someone what to expect before they decide if you are the person they want to do business with. 

Have you asked yourself the following questions?

  • Why did we start this business?
  • What are the beliefs and values that are important to us as a company?
  • What do we do better than anyone else?
  • What makes us special?
  • If we could describe our brand in three words, what would they be?
  • What are the three words we would want our customers to use to describe us?

 

Choosing the Right Color

When you decide on color do you choose your favorite, have input from others, look at other offices/ businesses for inspiration, or find the meaning of colors and decide?

Colors in the workplace can improve productivity, relieve fatigue, as well as contribute to better visibility and a more cheerful mentality.

Red is the color of fire and blood so it’s often associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, passion, and love.

Orange gives feelings of enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.

Yellow is the color of sunshine. It’s associated with joy, happiness, intellect, strength, adventure, and energy.

Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, and freshness.

Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth, stability, and loyalty. It symbolizes trust, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, and truth.

Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. It’s often associated with royalty because it symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, and mystery.

White – White is associated with light, cleanliness, goodness, innocence, and purity.

Black – Black is associated with power, elegance, and formality.

QR Generators

What is a QR Code?

This is the digital age where technology is changing daily. With smartphones, we can now do just about anything we want. When you wanted to exchange information with someone, we had business cards. While we still use them, more people are using QR-generated codes to take people straight to their information with a click of a button. 

A Business QR Code is a QR Code solution that creates a business page for your company. It functions as a landing page with a customizable CTA (call to action) button that directs users to a particular area of your own website, or whichever content you would like users to view.

How Do You Tell Your Patients, Thank you

When someone refers a new patient to your practice, what is your next step? Did you ask, how they heard about you? Did they see an ad? Was it the location? Do your offer incentives to say Thank you for their referral?

You know the saying, “You have to Give, to Receive.” It’s important to show appreciation to patients who speak highly of you and refer new patients to your practice. Expressing gratitude to your patients with a gift is a great way to say thank you.

Here are a few ways to show patients you appreciate them for referring patients:

  • Send a personal handwritten Thank You note
  • Do a giveaway and support your local businesses in your community at the same time: offer spa service, nail services, dinner for the family, flowers, etc.
  • Select a patient of the Month

Newsletters

Monthly Newsletters are a great way to educate your patients on dental topics. Showing what’s new happening at the office even when they can’t be there is a way to stay connected. Celebrate with staff birthday shoutouts adding photos, patient of the month, and fun facts. You can have an employee of the month spotlight, the new technology you are using at the office, promotional offers, and favorite recipes you want to share. The list can go on.

I will meet each month for the team’s input on what you want to share with your patients and create an engaging and fun newsletter. Newsletters will be available to share through email, social media (Facebook/Instagram), or print for mail. All graphics or royalty-free made through paid accounts for use.
