In a meeting the other day, a wise business owner was discussing his father’s philosophy about rewarding employees. “Why would you do that for them?” His father would get asked, “they might leave.” His response was “And what happens if I DON’T do it”.
Just think about that....
Travel is one of the most well-received rewards for employees. Travel, or any form of time-off, is a highly desirable treat that appeals to everyone and that employees crave. No matter how engaged an employee is, they will always look forward to their holidays. A variety of research shows that although a cash bonus is an attractive reward, travel tops the list!
One the easiest ways to provide a fabulous trip for your team and their companions is to select an all-inclusive resort. With so many activities, gourmet food options and little to no out-of-pocket expenses, this is a thrilling option.
Hard Rock All-Inclusive Resorts, for example, has everything you want in one spot. They have many locations to choose from but all offer high-end luxury accommodations, gorgeous beaches, incredible dining and nightlife fit for a rock star.
Travelers can be as active or inactive as they like. Taking advantage of relaxing by the pool and on the beach or kayaking and snorkeling in the turquoise water.
They can gather as a group or spend time on their own. The resorts are expansive and cater to so many tastes and lifestyles that everyone will be talking about this bonding experience long after the trip. Bonds that are formed enhances productivity in the work environment. Allowing spouses or significant others to join often strengthens the support they get at home when work requires them to be away.
Getting to know the individuals that you work with is not always easy, as we type away at our keyboards in our cubicles or slide on our headphones and focus on our daily work activities – it’s easy for some of us to have our head down for most of the day.
Many businesses now offer these types of perks to employees as the event to look forward to each year. Engaging with their peers in a unique environment often sparks additional creative ideas, allows them to better understand their co-workers and allows for personal time away from the office that too often is not taken.
With benefits for the employee and the employer the question should be ‘Why wouldn’t I offer this to my employees?’
