How everyone’s favorite kind of work trips begin.
Incentive travel is growing, and for good reason. Is your company on board yet?
Science has shown that travel and experiences do more to increase happiness than just buying things, but did you know it’s also a great way to increase employees’ loyalty and add value to your company?
Companies worldwide are finding that the allure of travel as a reward for employees is a great motivator that increases engagement levels, and it’s particularly appealing to American workers who often don’t take vacation time themselves.
It’s true; there is a growing wave of workers not using their paid vacation days, even though taking a break has been continuously shown to be good for increasing productivity and workplace happiness.
Though there are many benefits that employers will see as a result of their workforce getting away to recharge once in a while, the direct advantages to the company only increase when using incentive travel programs.
Implementing incentive travel is a great way to differentiate your company from the rest, all while fostering a stronger company culture and a greater sense of loyalty.
More conducive to productivity than sitting in a cubicle year-round
Whether you want to thank your top sales people or team for an amazing Q4, acknowledge the efforts of in-house vendors, or reward the entire office for surpassing last year’s numbers, incentive travel is a fantastic way to accomplish that. And we are experts at putting it all together without damaging your bottom line.
The simplest and least disruptive way our clients implement these trips is to schedule them over a long weekend, typically three to four nights and to take advantage of the benefits all-inclusive resorts have to offer. It’s easy to add on welcome receptions and reward dinners, letting your team enjoy the sunshine and relax during the day. Plus, you don’t have to worry about meal or drink tabs – it’s all included upfront.
It can get messy coordinating 20 – 100+ travelers. What if they are all traveling from different cities? And what if they want to add a few extra nights out of their pocket? That’s where we come in.
UNIGLOBE Travel Designers has strong relationships with airlines, hotels, ground transportation companies so we offer you the best rates and even greater ease in planning any special events, private meals, disjointed flight times, or excursions that you might need for your group, with our 24/7 rescue service to assist with any trip interruptions.
And if you needed another reason to consider adding in incentive travel to your company, every trip booked through UNIGLOBE Travel Designers also goes to benefit our Vitamin D Program. May’s charity recipient is Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, so you can give back to the community and your employees all at once.
So if you’ve been wondering how to bring in and keep great talent, while increasing your employee engagement and adding value to your company, then let us plan your next incentive travel package. Your employees will come back refreshed, reinvigorated, and ready to tackle the next quarter head on.
