An employee incentive program is beneficial for all parties.
If an employee feels valued and motivated he/she is more productive and committed. As a result, your company benefits with increased productivity, loyalty, morale and decreased absenteeism.
Rewards in many forms from cash to travel and gifts are a great motivator. It is most important for an employee to see that your company cares enough to offer incentives.
Incentives contribute to a harmonious working environment and high company morale. In turn, company morale reduces absenteeism and reduces company cost.
Incentives improve loyalty to your company that reduces your cost to hire, train new employees and results in reduced attrition.
Incentives encourage an employee to work towards your companies’ goals. In return, an employee is more productive and motivated with the promise of an incentive and a clearly defined target.
You can set up realistic goals and rewards for your employee when he/she reaches them.
Your incentive program results in a targeted cost reduction due to reduced employee absenteeism, recruitment costs and staff turnover.
Clear goals and rewards motivate an employee to show up on time and reduce wasted, unproductive time.
Incentive programs promote teamwork and create an environment to succeed as a team. Teamwork promotes efficiency and creates harmony in the workplace.

Images of cruises, oceans and beaches are stored in the emotional right side of the brain and “pulled” up often in anticipation.Anticipation of travel creates positive emotions that are much stronger in comparison to actual travel.
You probably have experienced that. Looking at photos and videos of cruises and destinations that you plan to visit create an emotional connection to anticipate your cruise/travel.Vacation time is extremely important.
Encourage your employees to take their vacation time and spend it with loved ones.
Show them that you are care about their personal life and wish them to recover from everyday stressors.
