Ways Travel Incentives Make Employees Produce Better Results

With US unemployment low and top-performing employees highly mobile due to this factor, employers need all the help they can get when strategizing around retention. All the tools in your toolbox are needed in a climate like this, so this post is about the many ways travel incentives make employees produce better results. 

Employees who produce better results are icons, representing the success of your corporate culture.  They’re also the people most likely to stick around when they’re treated well.

Let’s look at how travel incentives can improve motivation, inspiration, and results.

Genuine Employee Motivation

Everyone loves a trip to a place they’ve never been.  And when that trip is a travel incentive offered to your employees for a job well done, or for having returned the top sales figures, it’s highly desired.

A trip as a reward creates a vacation that the employer pays for, recognizing the successful employee’s efforts toward obtaining it.  Who doesn’t want that?

Having a travel incentive program in place, allows HR professionals to point to the program as a benefit, attracting great talent.  And word gets out about companies with cultures that encourage high-performing employees this way.

Those are companies that highly skilled, rock star employees want to work for.

Loyalty That Lasts

Once you’ve got them through the front door, there’s nothing like travel incentives to inspire loyalty.  That’s especially true when you’ve tailored your program to the desires of employees.

Feeling respected and valued, employees who benefit from travel incentives are more likely to stay.  They’ll be nourished by an enhanced feeling of connection to the organization they work for when they sense that you notice what they bring to the party.

And there’s no question that employee loyalty puts a dent in turnover and the high costs associated with it, both fiscally and in terms of morale.

Health and Wellness

There’s no question that a healthy workforce out-performs an unhealthy one.  Burnout and stress can both be mitigated with a well-deployed and carefully crafted travel incentives program.

Stress has physical consequences for human beings.  When you’re able to provide your employees with a “thank you” in the form of an all-expenses-paid trip, you’re giving them the gift of time away from what’s stressing them and burning them out.

Your business reduces absenteeism and healthcare costs associated with sickness caused by stress (illnesses like heart disease, for starters).

Boosted Productivity

Rear ends in seats don’t mean much if those rear ends aren’t producing.

Travel incentives inspire employees to reach a little higher.  The time they spend out of the office serves to reinvigorate their efforts, helping them to refocus and return better results, via boosted productivity.

These are just some of the ways travel incentives make employees produce better results.  Those results are the ROI you want for your travel incentive dollar.  Increased productivity, reduced turnover, and enhanced motivation and loyalty are all factors that mean a healthy, robust workplace that gets your business where you need it to be.
