Employee Travel Incentive Program for Team Building

Putting together a team comprised of top performers does not necessarily translate to business success. Before your team can function as one cohesive unit, it must face several challenges that are inherent when you put together a disparate group of individuals with their own sets of motivations and interests.

These challenges include communication, leadership, clear delineation of roles, conflicts and even the work environment. In order to overcome these challenges, there are several strategies that your organization can implement, including the use of an employee travel incentive program.

More often than not, when the topic of travel incentive schemes is discussed, the main focus is about drawing inspired performances from individuals. This often results in stiff competition which may undermine your goal of building a spirit of camaraderie.

However, many are unaware that group travel can help in the team building efforts of an organization. Listed here are a few of its key benefits.

Emergence of new leaders

When your employees are placed in situations beyond what they normally encounter, many individuals step up to the challenge, allowing you to see the leadership potential of members of your organization.

Improved morale

Apart from providing your employees a welcome break from their normal routines, group travel and team building activities allow employees to rest and recharge. These benefits can translate to greater creativity and productivity.

A source of inspiration

Success in teambuilding activities requires the collaboration of individual members of a group. In some cases, these activities can lead to new ideas that can be used in the workplace setting.

Trust and teamwork

Another key component of success in teambuilding activities is trust. Placed in a different scenario, employees must learn to trust the judgment and skills of their team members—values that can prove valuable in the workplace.

Travel incentive programs are effective in delivering these, as well as other benefits, because these bring your team members away from the environment they are accustomed to. By breaking away from routines and set patterns, they can easily see another side of their co-workers that often cannot be displayed in an office setting. These new realizations can be brought back to the office, heralding future success for the organization.

But just like in programs which try to elicit top performances from individuals, there are several key challenges for travel schemes used for teambuilding. These include planning, designing, choice of venues, communication and coordination with vendors, etc.

Enlisting the aid of companies that specialize in these programs can allow your organization to overcome these hassles and enable you to focus more on the teambuilding activities.
