Pharmacist employers must start to learn to make their pharmacist salary make sense to the pharmacist. Its only when your pharmacist salary makes sense to him or her that the pharmacist can be driven to add more value to the business.
What this means is that pharmacist employers must stop paying peanuts as pharmacist salary. What someone earns has a serious impact on the person’s working confidence. The more confident your pharmacist is, the more the pharmacist can deliver the desired value to you.
The irony of this is that most of the poor pharmacist salary are being paid by Pharmacists who are employers.
But like one pharmacist employer asked me. How can I continue paying a big pharmacist salary when my pharmacist does not know how to attend to a patient.
So, I want to share a common ground that I have found to be very effective and will benefit both the pharmacist and the employer. In designing your pharmacist salary, let the pharmacist salary be above hundred thousand naira but let a significant part of the salary be dependent on the pharmacist’s performance measured by the pharmacist meeting certain pre agreed target.
For instance you can agree to pay 180,000 but let the 90,000 depend on the pharmacist meeting at least 75% of the target you set for him or her. Hard working pharmacists will jump at this offer while lazy ones who refuse to take the offer.
This way both the pharmacist and pharmacist employer will be happy at the end of each month.
This is simple common sense that is very easy to apply in any situation. This way, nobody will complain that the other party is cheating them because they know that they are directly responsible for the salary they take home at the end of the month. This will eliminate the cases where the sales assistants will generate all the sales while the lazy pharmacist earns the big money.
