  • Motivation?

    So to all you bosses out there, what do you use as incentives for your employees, if anything? Do you give cash bonuses? Giftcards? ect.
    I'm thinking about implementing a bonus sytem for my employees. They are paid on salary, but I want to give them a personal reason to take that last minute bath dog or squeeze in a new client.
    I know some salons that use a shop quota system....Eg; everyone gets an extra $50 if the shop breaks a thousand that day. Has anyone used or had experince with this type of setup?
    Bottom line what would motivate you?

    This is how my former boss handled bonuses. My salary was based on a 55% commission but I was paid an hourly wage. At the end of every business quarter ( March, June, Sept. and Dec ) my sales were totaled and I was given a bonus check in the amount of the difference. It was always really nice to get those big, fat checks in the summertime and around the holidays and working a 10 hour day didn't seem so bad when I knew it was adding to the bottom line.
