Why travel is the best incentive
SITE president Rajeev Kohli shares his tips on getting ROI from motivation

9 Oct 2017

Travel has the highest Return On Investment as a reward in any motivation programme. Here are some fundamentals organisers need to know:

  • A trip must be to a destination that is aspirational to the target base.
  • It must offer unique and engaging experiences that the more typical travellers cannot, or would find it difficult, to buy on their own.
  • It should offer a level of luxury or quality that would pamper the participants at levels they are normally not used to.
  • Cash as an incentive is always welcome, but works better at lower levels in a corporate environment. The higher you go, the more aspirational the reward must be, and that is where travel fits best.

In my opinion, as an incentive travel practitioner, travel is the best reward. You spend money, you break or lose things, but you cannot take away the amazing memories and happy times one experiences on an incentive trip.

The joy of seeing smiles and hearing laughter on a trip makes my job as a DMC so much more special.
