Start at the begining! Who is your cashier trainer? Is red card conversion a priority for the person training your cashiers? If the person training your new cashiers has a dismal conversion rate, you may want to rethink.
A few simple games I used -
2 for Tuesdays- 2 conversions got them a 2 litre of soda.
Add it up - 1 conversion, 1 regular size candy bar, 2 conversion, a six pack of those candy bars, 3 conversions,a bag of candy bars
Bingo!- [/U][/U][/B][/B]you can make online Bingo cards for free. Every way you can get a Bingo includes at least 1 red card space. The other spaces are filled with Dyson vacuum, video game, box of diapers etc. The team really likes this one. They are aware of what they are ringing up and stay engaged with the game. If any one is able to completely black out their card they get their choice of Target Dog or $5 GC. For each single bingo, we used items from the red card prize vault.
Roll the Dice- Have prizes assigned to each number. Whatever they roll they get that prize.
Execs VS TLS- These can be beneficial in 2 ways. There are no prizes involved, just bragging rights. You will get some support from the execs and tls with backups AND you will drive conversion. Run it from Sun-Sat, the only rules are whichever team (execs or TLs) get the most conversions is declared the winner. These 2 groups can be highly competitive with each other. No STL wants to see the TLs beat their execs. Announce the totals daily in the huddle for example you can say Tls are in the lead with 10 and the execs have 2. The team really gets behind this too.
When and if your team announces when a cashier gets a red card, be sure to be standing by that cashier so they can hear the congratulations. Too many people forget that the cashiers do not have walkies and they can't hear everyone giving them credit. Also please wait until the guest has left the building.
