Looking for a way to reward teamwork and excellent performance? Hold a sticker contest like Robin Pack, practice manager at All Care Animal Hospital in Minneola, Fla. Each month, Pack gives employees their own sticker sheet and buys motivational or seasonal decals. "Whenever an employee goes out of his or her way and helps another employee or does extra tasks that need to be done without being told, he or she earns a sticker," Pack says. "At the end of the month, the employee with the most stickers wins a gift card to a local eatery. The gift card is always different and comes with a theme. For example, if the card is to Starbucks, then I get a mug to go with it. The employees love this contest, and I find they work happier and harder because of it."
