1Split staff into two teams.
2Develop sales goals and assign values in yardage, field goals and touchdowns. Examples: A $50 sale is five yards; a $100 sale, 10 yards; a $500 sale, a touchdown; a $1,000 sale, three touchdowns.
3All players start at the 50-yard line. Penalties are given to players and back staff. Examples: Delay of game (late for work, job not done on time), 15-yard penalty; illegal motion (improper paperwork), 5-yard penalty; offside (not following store procedures), 10 yards.
4Team goals are posted on a game board.
5The player with the most yardage receives a special MVP award.
6Decorate the backroom with a football theme. Use a referee uniform to announce scores.Even use a whistle! (But not when customers are around.)
