Having seen an increase in incentive trips across the UK over the past 2 years, some may often ask themselves why exactly? What are the benefits of these? and why are they becoming increasingly popular once again?
Incentive travel itself is a highly rewarding experience that can affect and often improves performance within a workforce. Particularly when combined with a desired business result. This is traditionally the starting point of incentive travel and a reward such as a weekend luxury skiing break can be used and incorporated into a rewards program, encouraging better performance and healthy competitiveness within the office/nationwide.

1. Focus and Motivation
Providing focus and motivation amongst the workforce- With a reward in place, one will undoubtedly aspire to achieve the targets set and win themselves a place on the trip. In the process of this it can reinvigorate team members and encourage the drive, amounting to higher engagement and an all-round boost in morale. Not to mention increase sales and performance value.
2. Client Relationships
Client/partner relationship building- Incentives can be used to strengthen ties between existing clientele; encouraging loyalty with the client at hand. These trips are often relaxed and gives the client a chance to get to know you and your ideals more informally. Inspiring future progression and partnership.
