We believe “travel” is the best incentive reward since, like cash, the promise of a “free” trip to an exciting destination of an individuals dream, greatly motivates people. However, unlike cash, the value of an incentive trip is not quickly spent and forgotten. In fact, studies have shown that travel is the single most popular non-cash incentive reward, and that a travel incentive program can increase sales productivity between 10 and 20%. But performance improvement is not the only benefit of an incentive travel program. When properly planned and customized, group incentive travel can increase morale, build team spirit, improve loyalty by creating lasting memories and, especially for decentralized organizations, provide quality time for management to network with top performers.
We realize that it’s not about booking some airline tickets and making hotel reservations, but about creating a valuable teambuilding/ social and recognition exercise, that can help our clients motivate and retain their best people.
We provide not just a trip, but a “customized” experience with opportunities for participants to interact and share ideas with each other at unique functions and events throughout the program.
“Incentive-motivated travel” goes way beyond selecting the destination and making associated arrangements. As an incentive travel facilitator, we have to present the travel reward in such a way that it motivates the recipients to perform at peak, so as not to miss out. The critical function is achieved through stimulating incentive–driven campaigns which are supported by professionally presented “teaser items” – pre empting and fixing a taste of what’s to come.
We regularly see how incentive-driven travel, run at these professional levels, becomes self-perpetuating where enthusiastic feedback from our client further drives our passion to excel and our heightened enthusiasm fuels the next incentive campaign….
