Many companies may scoff at the idea of rewarding staff with a ‘holiday’ when a desired result is achieved, but the facts simply cannot be ignored. According to the Incentive Research Foundation, organisations that provide non-cash rewards have revenue increases three times higher than average, and of companies that run reward programmes, 53 percent use incentive travel. Dangling the prospect of travel like a carrot in front of a sales floor is a known motivation tool to help boost performance and shouldn’t be overlooked when strategizing ways in which to up those all-important numbers. Travel excites the masses, and it is this universal appeal that makes it a great incentive. But where in the world should you be offering to your employees? James Kenyon, Winged Boots Business’ head of business sales, shares his top five destinations.

Hit the European slopes

Skiing  makes for a great team bonding activity during the cold season and is also a good option for a short haul trip. Ideal for Friday to Monday getaways, many slopes boast relatively quick travel time and plenty of peaks within close proximity to airports so you won’t be wasting precious hours with transfers. What’s more, a ski incentive requires minimal itinerary planning. Your days are taken up on the slopes, while the late afternoons and evenings revolve around apres-ski. It’s the perfect blend of sport and leisure and is great for large groups. Plus, with so many European resorts to choose from you’ll have no problem finding a destination that’s suitable for both beginners and seasoned pros thanks to the plethora of ski schools and range of slopes that vary in difficulty.

When has Ibiza ever been a bad idea? And when it comes to rewarding your staff, it could be one of the best. The European party isle’s reputation speaks for itself but there’s another side to this Balaeric Island. Think luxurious resorts, stunning beaches and excellent restaurants and you’ve only scratched the surface of what Ibiza has to offer. After working hard in the office, an excuse to soak up some sun, stay in five-star accommodation and party ‘til dawn will definitely be what the doctor ordered. With swift airport transfers and fantastic resorts to hip beach clubs, the trip can well and truly begin from the moment you touch down on the tarmac – what more could you possibly need?

Take a bite out of the big apple

New York City – one of the most popular destinations in the world – will always excite employees. The chance to visit the big apple, even for those who have already been, is sure to be a hit in the office and in turn will spur on employees to meet targets and perform to the best of their abilities. From shopping on Fifth Avenue to soaking up the sights from atop the Empire State Building, there’s just so much to do in NYC that boredom simply won’t be on the agenda. How about a winter escape where you can ice skate through Central Park? Or perhaps a summer helicopter tour over the city followed by an evening watching the latest smash hit on Broadway would better suit your employees? Either way, this city delivers on every level and is sure to cater to all.
