Incentive trips yield many positive benefits, including: employee motivation, dedication, and team building. In fact, providing a memorable experience has been proven to be more effective than money in motivating employees! Furthermore, incentive trips not only help the employee, they help the employer as well. Fun destination trips increase employee morale, engagement, and teamwork which all lead to an improved working environment. A happy employee is a happy workforce, and happy people are more productive.
Paragon Events recently managed a special incentive trip to Banff, Alberta, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The invitation was extended to customers, employees, suppliers, and respective spouses; in total 92 guests were in attendance. While at the beautiful Fairmont Springs Hotel (also referred to as the Canadian ‘Castle in the Rockies’), guests had the opportunity to: golf, sight-see, whitewater raft, mountain climb, ride horses, and head to the spa. Additionally, the company hosted its annual dealer meeting to provide an overview of emerging industry tends, as well as to offer networking and relationship-building opportunities. Throughout the week, organized dinners and events took place, including a medieval themed dinner, welcome reception with live birds of prey, and an out west bbq dinner.
Incentive travel fosters an increased sense of loyalty toward the employer and forges strong team dynamics, while also providing a break for employees – enabling them to relax, re-energize, de-stress and return to the office healthier, both mentally and physically. Providing a memorable experience for your employees is worth it! Participants will be excited to share their experience with colleagues and peers, which in turn brings more buzz to your rewards and goals. The best part about incentive travel is that it is scalable. Programs can be tailored to specific budgets and intentions. Paragon Events specializes in destination management!
