A recent survey found that, of people contemplating leaving their jobs, 50% said an increase in employee recognition (awards, incentive trips, etc.) would encourage them to stay. Whether internally among peers or outside the organization, recognition creates a snowball effect; increasing momentum and reinforcing positive behaviors. Getting your recognition and reward strategy right can help you keep your best talent thriving, meaning you’ll see better results. The power of recognition proves that celebrated behaviors get repeated.
Incentive travel as rewarding experiences
Rewards – like incentive travel experiences – go hand-in-hand with recognition. In at least two studies, the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE), found that almost 90% of respondents believe that “the power of incentive travel made them feel appreciated” and earning the trip made them feel recognized by their company and peers; generating the desire to continue to excel and earn similar rewards.
People desire and are motivated by experiences because:
- They make them feel empowered
- They create an emotional impact which builds enduring memories
- They are sharable with others through pictures and stories
- They are representative of their beliefs and values
- They are the new status symbol over material goods
Travel incentive programs work
According to numerous surveys, and most recently the Incentive Travel Industry Index, there are eight top reasons organizations use (and love) incentive travel programs. Incentive buying stakeholders have consistently ranked “Increased Sales and Profit” as the number one objective associated with incentive travel. And with 98% of respondents reporting that incentive travel helped them reach these goals, we would say the business case is strong.
Here are the objectives of incentive travel programs according to program buyers:
- Increase sales and profit;
- Increase individual productivity;
- Improve employee engagement and morale;
- Strengthen employee loyalty;
- Build better relationships between employees and management;
- Retain talent;
- Build better relationships among employees.
- Enhance Ability to Recruit New Employees
Building a better world
Companies that earn recognition on lists such as “Best Places to Work” and the Game Changers 500 – which highlights companies working for social good – prove that purpose-driven organizations and human-centric thinking are taking center stage in businesses today.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives are an excellent way to help a cause, enhance the engagement of employees, and be seen as a caring business partner. Because these initiatives are so important to employees and consumers, companies need to make them part of their DNA, too. Tying CSR initiatives to your company purpose or local community will increase the appeal of your organization’s story. In fact, the 2015 Global Corporate Social Responsibility Study reports that 84% of global consumers seek out responsible products every time they shop, and 91% expect companies to do more than make a profit.
Brazil offers perfect conditions for business with something more, being the ideal destination for meetings, incentive groups, conferences and congresses, in a committed and, at the same time, unforgettable.
Organizing an incentive trip to Brazil allows for countless different possibilities, starting with the style of the destination. As a country of continental dimensions, Brazil has options for all tastes, and in each city visitors from all over the world can get to know a little more about its vibrant culture and warm people.
