In tough economic times, when employees everywhere are questioning their job security, it would do a company good to strategically hearten and care for its people—in a manner that makes sense for both company and employee.
When Toshiba America Medical Systems, the medical diagnostic imaging subsidiary of Toshiba Corporation, restructured its sales team recently, it thought it best to give those assigned to new and unfamiliar territories an extra hand.
The company invested $200,000 in a targeted direct mail campaign designed to increase product awareness, demonstrate credibility, and pave the way to new client relationships within those territories.
The newly aligned team is now on track to exceed the company's sales goals with $16,000,000 worth of sales from organizations directly targeted by the campaign. And those gains, combined with the commitment the company was able to demonstrate to its people, have made an important impact on internal morale.
