Spiff of The Month: September 2013

HANGMAN

A good game to use with sale staff who are learning new skills. Salespeople must meet minimum daily goals (such as approaching a certain number of customers) to avoid earning a hangman part. Those who have drawn a full hangman by the end of the week are assigned a booby prize such as a cleaning duty. Salespeople still with a free-hanging noose win a prize ($25 cash, a come-in-late ticket, etc.). By setting reasonable goals, you will encourage your people to apply what they’ve learned in training out on the sales floor.

Setup:

1 Work out what goals the sales associate must meet each day for the game’s duration (could be a weekend or a week).

2 Print out pieces of paper illustrated with the hangman’s scaffold and noose and with each player’s name on top, and distribute them at the morning meeting when you kick off the game.

3 Mark up the papers at the end of each day.

4 Play Chopin’s “Funeral March” at your game-ending meeting when you hand out the booby prizes.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
