Top Incentive Travel Destinations For 2019
This month I wanted to discuss Incentive travel which is being widely used by organisations across the world to recognise, reward, and motivate the stellar performance of their employees within Europe. In my next three articles, I will highlight the ‘Classic’, the ‘Sunny’ and the ‘Adventure’ destinations for where event companies come to Uniqueworld Global Destination Management (DMCs) to book their next event. With thousands of event companies all wanting to motivate their clients, and their clients wanting to motivate their sales teams, it doesn’t come as a surprise when the employees also don’t like to leave any stone unturned to go that extra mile and stay that extra hour to become eligible and win a trip to the most coveted destinations in the world.
There is no denying the fact that organisations are trying different ways to retain their best performers. It is for this reason among others that they consistently reanimate their organisational culture, compensation structures, and their overall corporate goals so that they not only reward the very best employees but also stay good by the communities in which they have to thrive.
In the recent past, the concept of incentive travel has gained steam with organisations realising the significance and power of an all-expense paid company trip. We all know that cash bonuses are forgotten at the drop of a hat. None of us has ever witnessed someone taking a selfie paying off their debts with their bonuses. But people do remember the fjords of Norway (to be in my adventure article) and the fun at Vegas and those smiling pictures with colleagues having a time of their lives – thanks to incentive travel. This is primarily because there is nothing more exciting for a team than a paid trip to a dream destination as it creates a lifetime of memories and some fantastic moments.
How To Get Started With Incentive Travel?
Getting started with incentive travel is extremely easy. You can contact a destination management company such as our Belgium DMC which is a leading DMC conference planner for Belgium with head office in Brussels.
