How incentive trips work in 3 steps:

1. YChoose whether to reward individual or collective work—or both—in your company. In the first case, the trip is aimed at rewarding the outstanding performance of a single worker during the work period; and, in the second, at rewarding the communication and synergy of a whole work team with superior performance

2. Define the objectives to be met and the evaluation mechanisms at an individual and/or collective level; those who achieve them will be selected. Incentive trips are ideal for rewarding job performance and employee ownership of corporate values. It is a perfect tool to synchronize a company’s team. Additionally, you can plan more than one incentive trip and organize them as a third, second and first position, and thus recognize the work of several of your workers.

3. Finally, send selected workers on a trip of your choosing to destinations that foster creativity, leadership and a collaborative spirit. You should keep in mind that an incentive trip requires between 6 and 12 months of planning to make it special.
