Planning Your Team Celebration

Notes:

Celebrate the team's efforts with an event that demonstrates your hospital's appreciation for the long hours and teamwork that occurred. Working within budget constraints, choose a forum, food, drinks, and gifts that make team members feel appreciated. Invite senior leaders to make opening remarks that address the strategic successes that were realized. Ask team members to share their experiences, including what they loved about the process and what they would do differently. Make sure that each team member's name is highlighted in the recognition e-mail, letter, and project presentation. Select for the document "Celebrate Team Success."
