Spiff of The Month: Team Competition

BY DAVID GELLER

Published in the November 2012 issue.

Salespeople aren’t the only ones who help make the holidays merry. There are the jewelers, part-time wrappers (with their smiles or frowns), the admin staffers who answer the phone, call in orders, check on customer work, etc.

1Divide the store into teams. Put backroom staff on a team with sales staff. Each team has salespeople, a jeweler (if you have more than one), bookkeeper, etc.

2Offer a bunch of prizes that get split up or duplicated for everyone on the winning team.

3Prizes can be money, products, gift certificates or, even better: The winning team gets dinner at a fancy restaurant in January to reward themselves.

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.”
