We’re fast approaching Christmas, traditionally a season for generosity and indulgence and, as a business leader, you're quite possibly considering the perfect gift to express your gratitude to your exceptional team for all their hard work over the last year.
While chocolates, whiskey and wine have their charm, we are living in a world where health and wellbeing are pushing to the forefront of everyone’s minds so, apart from being somewhat boring, predictable and sometimes even unwanted, are these gifts really sending out the right message to your team?
There is a gift however that not only sends the ‘right’ message, but is also a year-round gift that holds the promise of adventure and exploration: travel rewards.
Travel rewards are an exceptional choice for rewarding your employees, no matter the season and they can have surprising benefits for your business too!
1. A Lifetime of Memories:
By stepping away from the ordinary and giving your employees the gift of travel you're offering, even encouraging, your team to take time out, create cherished memories and explore the world in ways that will leave a lasting imprint. From exotic beach getaways to immersive cultural journeys, the options are boundless. When your employees receive this gift, they'll know you appreciate their dedication.
2. The Cure for Burnout - Anytime:
Burnout can strike at any time of the year. Your employees put in their hard work all year round and they deserve to take a break, recharge, and refresh. A break away gives them the opportunity to take a much-needed escape from their daily routines, allowing them to return with a newfound sense of energy and vigour, regardless of the time of year. With today’s ‘cost of living’ concerns, a break away for some may not be something that is readily affordable however, gifting your team travel rewards can make it a much easier, viable opportunity for them.
3. Achieving Work-Life Harmony - Year-Round:
Although Christmas day is the day that the TV adverts inevitably switch from toys and turkes to holidays and the sun, the allure of travel isn't just confined to Christmas. Travel rewards are a year round opportunity, they are a gift that just keep on giving! Whether it's a spontaneous weekend break or a well-planned summer escape that will help enable your team to maintain a better work-life balance, enjoy quality time with loved ones, and return to work refreshed, rejuvinated and ready.
4. Attracting and Retaining Top Talent - Always in Style:
In today's competitive job market, attracting and retaining top talent is an ongoing challenge. Offering rewards that stand out from the crowd can be an appealing proposition for potential recruits and, by signalling your commitment to their well-being through your willingness to provide unique incentives like travel can make a difference. For your current employees, it's a gesture that will keep them inspired and motivated, regardless of the season.
5. The Gift of Wellness - Anytime You Choose:
Travel rewards epitomise wellness and rejuvenation, regardless of when they're given. A change of scenery, exposure to different cultures and new experiences contribute to reduced stress and increased happiness. Employees who have the opportunity to recharge and reset through travel become more focused, productive, and satisfied with their jobs.
So, this year, why not break away from the norm and gift your team with the adventure of a lifetime that's perfect for any season? Travel rewards offer the opportunity to have experiences that endure long after the holiday season is over. Empower your team to explore, relax, and bond with loved ones, year-round. By doing so, you're not only rewarding your employees - you're investing in their happiness, well-being, and loyalty, no matter when they choose to embark on their next journey.
