Celebrate your pharmacy technicians

American Pharmacists Month was established to recognize, celebrate and promote pharmacists. But pharmacists know that a successful pharmacy takes a great team.

Helping technicians develop and grow

While recognizing your technicians for all they do, you can also identify additional opportunities for them to develop and grow in their work. Allowing your technicians to take on more responsibility will increase their engagement and increase your pharmacy’s capabilities. As your pharmacy technicians grow, so does the growth of your pharmacy.

Each of these areas fits with a technician’s skills and capabilities. Each area helps patients, provides benefits for the pharmacy, and will help your technicians grow personally and professionally.

So, during American Pharmacists Month, and every other month, take time to celebrate your technicians and identify opportunities to further engage and empower them. This will not only benefit them, but also you, your pharmacy and your patients in the process.
