On their return, you can expect sky high productivity levels from your key performers, as well those who just missed the trip pushing even harder for next year. Who doesn’t love a little healthy competition? The money it costs to fund annual incentive trips will likely outweigh the return on investment.
Social events are a great way for new and old employees to network, learn about internal opportunities, and socialise in a more relaxed setting. It’s where the team bonding really happens.
It’s not just a pat on the back for your high achievers; it’s also an incentive for all team members. Showing recognition will give your other employers something to work towards. However, make sure your thanks and praise is genuine; your team will know if it is not. Likewise, personal emails will achieve the same result, and can go a long way.
Monthly goals and targets give your team small achievements to work towards, which all make up towards hitting those annual targets. Rewards can be as small or as large as you like; ringing a bell, receiving chocolates, an extra day of leave, shopping vouchers, or even putting their face on a mug. The result is your high achiever feels appreciated, and the rest of your team have something to work towards.
Offering your employees the chance to leave the office early is not only free, but functional to many job roles. Clocking off early will encourage work productivity and enable your employees to have more time to themselves- everyone’s happy!
