28 Aug Benefits of incentive travel program for employees and organisation
Thinking of starting an incentive program for your company or team? At seven events, we want to help your organisation plan an employee travel incentive program to remember. So to make the decision easy, we have listed the benefits of incentive travel for both employees and the organisation.
Nothing says you are a valued team member than an all-paid trip to Lisbon for the weekend. Or, if Lisbon isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other options for your employee travel incentive program. Whatever the budget, every organisation has a destination, activity, and accommodation.
So what are the benefits of incentive travel for an employee? There are first the obvious things such as everyone having a great time, serotonin increase, and depending on the location, perhaps a vitamin d boost! But the benefits of incentive travel are so much more than this. The thought, the planning and what it means to make all the difference.
#1 feeling valued
This doesn’t go unnoticed for a company to put time and money into an incentive program for their employees. It allows employees to feel valued and special, giving them a sense of purpose and more determination to succeed at work.
#2 work motivation
Motivation is another benefit of incentive travel. Knowing there is an incentive to work hard and a reward at the end means an employee travel incentive program is a win for both employer and employee.
#3 team bonding
For those companies who have gone fully remote or adopted a hybrid model, time to bond as a team has perhaps become a thing of the past. An employee travel incentive program allows time for your team to get together, catch up and really bond as a group. An employee travel incentive program can provide a natural environment where colleagues feel relaxed and comfortable getting to know fellow team members.
Now we’ve established an employee travel incentive program is a benefit for employees, what about the organisation? A lot of money can go into these trips, so you certainly want to ensure you get a lot back. To get money, you must invest money – and in this case, you must invest in your employees. All the benefits listed above for employees also benefit the organisation.
You are adding value to the company by running an employee travel incentive program. This benefit can be a unique aspect of the company; therefore, people will want to work for you and stay longer at the company when working for you. Interns that come to the organisation for a short while will go back to their universities and rave about how wonderful they were to work for and how lucky they were to go on an incentive trip.
We know it takes time to organise an incentive travel program, and that’s why we want to help take that stress away here at seven events. The benefits of incentive travel are priceless and will reward the organisation in the long run. Whatever your incentive budget, brief or location, here at seven events, we want to help you organise the perfect trip. Get in touch today to get planning your next incentive now.
