It’s almost time! National Rad Tech Week takes place November 2-8, 2014 and is the perfect time to thank your favorite Radiologic Technology staff for the difference they make in people’s lives. Need some ideas? Here are a few ways to celebrate:
Tell R.T.s “You Matter”
Whether it be a handwritten note, a funny picture or a few encouraging words, use your creativity to let them know they matter. It could be as simple as sharing this Happy Rad Tech Week video (or create your own version with the help of staff, friends, and family!):
A DVD giveaway
Enter your rad techs in a drawing to win DVDs of the show Bones (see what I did there?). This show is colossally popular and there are sure to be fans on your tech team. Winners can watch and trade seasons until they've seen them all.
Spread some X-ray humor
Kick the week off by sending your staff an encouraging email. To give the message a little oomph, why not throw in a good X-ray related chuckle? Follow the link to a parody video from MovieClips that combines "cutting edge X-ray technology" with a little Hollywood flair.
The "Great Equalizer"
For those who want to celebrate their techs, but don't have a lot of time, there's always a good, old-fashioned gift card. Who doesn't like a free latte or large pizza?
