Reston, VA, June 14, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- A unique new employee benefit program released today enables dentists to reward their Teams as much as $10,000 a year in instant cash savings on over 150,000 products and services – from travel to entertainment to brand name merchandise − for as little as $79 per month.
Loyal Team™ Rewards is a turnkey employee loyalty solution, completely customized for dentistry, which rewards dental Team Members for job performance critical to patient satisfaction and practice profitability. The program uses a patent-pending loyalty engine currently serving millions of customers of select Fortune 500 companies and features instant use of rewards for savings (Team Members do not need to collect 25,000 rewards points as in traditional loyalty programs to redeem meaningful savings) and no additional cost to add rewards to a Team Member’s rewards account.
Dentists and office managers can view a brief video explaining the program in detail and enroll in the program at www.LoyalTeamRewards.com.
“From the day we launched our unique patient rewards program, we’ve been asked by almost every practice we’ve spoken with: ‘Don’t you have a program I can use to reward my TEAM members?’” said Gary Serota, co-founder of Loyal Patients, Inc. and the Loyal Team™ Rewards program.
After surveying dentists, Team Members, dental marketing and management consultants, and HR consultants in dentistry, LPI identified 20 key behaviors practices agreed were critical to success. With the Loyal Team™ Rewards system, it takes a dentist or office manager just 5 minutes a month to reward their entire Team.
Practices can reward behaviors including perfect attendance, winning a patient’s praise, closing a cosmetic case or other appropriate dental services, consistently scheduling a patient’s next appointment, always asking for patient cell phone numbers and email addresses, working evenings to fill the appointment schedule, consistently requesting full or partial payment, attending a CE class and sharing new learnings with the Team, achieving individual goals (collections or patient reactivations, e.g.), “performance beyond the basic job description,” and many more.
“During the recession, while many Teams are working harder than ever, many offices find patients are deferring care and practices are coping with flat or even reduced monthly revenue, making it too expensive to increase salaries or pay employee bonuses,” Serota said. This can devastate Team morale, but Loyal Team™ Rewards enables a practice to generously reward solid job performance and thank their Team, despite reduced production,” he noted. “And it’s affordable by every dental practice in the nation, even in the recession,” he said.
LPI co-founder Scott Johnston added that Loyal Team™ Rewards is a dramatic new personnel management tool for dental practices. “Our solution rewards specific employee behaviors that drive dental practice profits and morale, reinforces key behaviors every month in minutes, communicates clear expectations for each Team Member’s success, works with any dental HR/Bonus system, and says “thank you’ from the dentist to each employee who helps the practice succeed.”
