Encourage Health Care Workers to Get the Flu Shot: Use the Carrot or the Stick?

Flu Fighters button proudly displayed by Ministry Health Care employees who have received this year’s flu shot. Join us in protecting you and your loved ones today, get your flu shot.

This year many health care entities want to protect their employees from getting the flu and transmitting it to others. Some have taken the stick approach by making the flu shot a condition of employment. The policy has rightly generated some backlash.  Others, like Ministry Health Care has taken the carrot approach; either receive the flu shot or wear a mask during the flu season – it is the employees choice.

Using the carrot approach, there has been no backlash.  Ministry also provides the cool button shown above that is worn by each employee who receives the shot.  I got mine earlier this week.  As I make my rounds through out Ministry, I am seeing an increasing number of employees wearing their buttons.

Come November 15th, when  we are required to either display the button or the mask, I bet I see very few masks.  Join us in protecting yourself and your loved ones by getting your flu shot today.

So what works better, the carrot or the stick. You decide.
