Have Fun–Will Travel
It is no great secret that the success of your business depends in large part on the performance of its employees. For an entrepreneur, one of the primary things you want to do as a leader is to encourage your employees to support and serve your mission and vision. One way to do that is to make sure that a relevant and exciting Employee rewards program is in place!
While it is of primary importance to keep employees happy, there may not be enough time in your day to thoroughly investigate the means to do so. Let Peak Performance Meetings & Incentives partner with you in this important process! We offer a creative and flexible approach to co-design and energize your current recognition, retention, and reward program.
There are many familiar ways that businesses reward and recognize their employees, clients, and customers: loyalty cards, lunch, birthday recognition, product and service discounts, cash, etc. But, have you ever considered individual or group travel?
People are increasingly enjoying the many benefits of travel, and you can be a part of that trend. Here are several reasons why people enjoy travel and how they can benefit your company:
- Provides for greater job productivity. “Travelers experience a 25% increase in performance on vigilance tests after returning from vacation. Travelers 45 or older show a 50% increase in performance.” YPartnership “National Travel Leisure Monitor.”
- Personal health benefits: A yearly vacation can reduce a person’s risk of heart attack by 50% (Allerton, H. E. (2003) Not Funny Ha Ha Funny peculiar. T+D; Vol. 57 Issue 12, p87-88, 2p ) This can have a significant positive impact on the rising cost of health care for individuals as well as your business.
- Promote cultural understanding and expand diversity awareness. When people travel, they interact with a variety of people and their resulting differences in tastes in food, customs, clothing, and etc. This can serve to enhance insight and perception, foster sympathy, and reduce conflict in the workplace.
- Break mental, physical, and emotional habits. The workplace and daily life can become routine. Travel provides a chance to broaden your horizons and gain new experiences. It also rewards employees with a chance to decompress and “recharge their batteries.”
Furthermore, research done by The U.S. Travel Association indicates that:
“Data released Wednesday (June 4, 2014) by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) further validate the travel industry’s essential role in revitalizing the U.S. economic recovery.”
