With the team all fighting to be apart of the festivities all year long, you'll have the best chance of reaching your growth goals! We will provide you with the marketing materials to keep your team excited and engaged by putting together rankings, talking about amenities of the trip, and finding way to celebrate those who have qualified!
Through a travel program, you are promoting relaxation in order to recharge while giving recognition to your top talent. While traveling, your team will experience bonding moments allowing them to get to know each other outside of the office and create friendships. These bonds will keep your top talent apart of the family for years to come!
If you can't beat your competition with higher salaries, try attracting new talent with the amazing amenities that your company offers. A unique travel program could be just the answer to catch that incredible sales candidate you've been hoping for!
Every Sales Manager in every company around the world has the same thought at the beginning of every year. How in the world am I going to motivate my team to push even harder than they did last year?! How do I keep my top performers loyal to my company?!
If you’ve had a stellar year or if you’ve tanked, the same problem faces us all. How can you make someone change their behavior and put in more effort than ever before?? Most Sales Managers turn to the tried and true. Money.
I’ll give you a $$$$ bonus if you reach your stretch goal! While it sounds exciting in the moment and might even just increase sales in the short term, you’ll be stuck doing these over and over throughout the year to keep up motivation.
We’ve all reached that time when $100 doesn’t motivate the team so we move to $200, then $300, then $400….
Motivation can be fickle. Even a raise doesn’t always do the trick. A $2,000/year base salary raise is significant, but when it breaks down, it calculates out to less than $40 a week. Your employees don’t see a jump in their paycheck and therefore you probably won’t see a huge jump in sales or motivation throughout the year.
So, how do you motivate your team all year long and keep growing your momentum month over month?
Instead, use your budget for a flashy vacation giveaway. $2,000 can go much further to motivate someone when it’s in the form of a white sand beach and some emerald waters! It is the right thing to promote retention of your top talent, give them the recognition they deserve, and allow them some much needed relaxation after a year of hard work.
A sales incentive trip accomplishes this in a variety of ways and The Travel Byrds are there to support you throughout the entire year. We will help you promote the trip to your team and grow excitement. You will be provided with all of the gorgeous marketing materials you could ever want to post around the office as a continuous reminder of the luxury vacation up for grabs.
Once a trip is in place and has been happening year after year, you can also post pictures of previous trips to create a sense of desire not to be left out. This will excite your team into trying as hard as they can to earn this year’s trip.
However, there’s a few best practices to strengthen the excitement and make this program successful. Most importantly, you should invite the head leadership along so not only do you get to reward your top performers for doing a great job, but you’ll also create a bonding moment with leadership to keep them around for years to come! You’ll also allow your top performers a chance to voice their opinions to leadership and allow them to feel heard, further reinforcing their bond to the company.
Secondly, you need to make it a “thing” at the company. “Remember that year we went up in a hot air balloon?!” “Remember that time Bob sang Karaoke in the Bahamas?!” “Remember that time Susan went for a swim when we were white water rafting?!”
Creating memories within your company will allow employees to promote the trip on their own. You won’t have to tell new employees about it. They’ll be dying to be on that trip every year.
Lastly, truly make it an experience about them. Don’t nickle and dime your employees when they’re on the trip. Budget accordingly so they can sit back, relax, and enjoy their hard earned vacation.
If you want to raise sales, increase retention rates at your company, and have a truly happy team, plan your sales incentive trip today!
