Keeping employees motivated is essential to the success of a business, at any level. More often than not, and especially in larger companies, managers and executives often fail to realize when an employee becomes discontent. When an employee becomes discontent, his or her work habits suffer, and the job he or she is tasked to perform becomes slack, and eventually hurts the company before anything can be done to fix the situation. Consequently, this employee is usually let go for perceived laziness or insubordination. However, in truth, who is to blame?
Many who read this are probably more likely to empathize with the disgruntled employee, who probably worked hard for a considerable period, bet felt lost in the shuffle, and decided, since no one recognized the hard work he or she put in, that the long hours just simply was no longer worth the effort. Others may read this and think to themselves that the frustrated employee is paid to perform a duty, and that duty was not completed consistently, therefore he or she should be released for not holding up their end of the bargain. After all, since when did we become a society that needs to be recognized for every good deed, and that performing our job is a duty that requires constant goading to perform?
Whatever side of the fence you fall on, the fact is that today’s workforce needs motivation. The following should provide an excellent idea on how to best motivate employees.
Offering workers corporate incentive travel programs is a wonderful way to motivate employees. It is true that the workforce has been putting in more hours, and pay has not increased in accordance with the longer hours worked. Providing bonuses is certainly an option, but why not offer employees who work crazy hours to get their job completed in exemplary manner a vacation destination to a beautiful and fun city? This way, employees get to refresh themselves by either relaxing or taking part in fun and adventurous extracurricular activities, or perhaps both.
Motivating employees through corporate incentive travel programs will accomplish two important aspects to a worker’s routine—they will work harder toward achieving goals in order to attain the incentive travel program, and it provides an escape from the stress a daily grind at the office creates.
