Newtown, PA (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
Peak Performance Meetings and Incentive Travel Planning Services is working with clients through these tough economic times to help them continue using travel to reward employees for hard work and outstanding achievements. Travel can be affordable and creating a memory is priceless, but having the right resources to make it happen is essential.
Peak Performance has expanded its website to include an incentive travel section devoted to travel options including travel certificates, cruise trips, sports travel and recreation awards, along with a guide that explains why you should consider a corporate incentive program. From exclusive group experiences to employee team building opportunities, Peak works with groups of all sizes and interests in designing affordable options to fit an organization's demographic profile and reward expectation, and to meet the overall budget.
In addition to the group incentive travel format, Peak Performance also designs tier incentive travel programs. The tier program provides increasing reward levels based on an employee's performance, with higher tiers tying into higher performance. Following are two client program case studies regarding the value of customization and flexibility:
Case study #1: Involves a U.S.-based client who for the past several years has rewarded their sales with a corporate incentive program to the Caribbean. For 2010 they need to cut their budget by 40% while maintaining the integrity of the travel component as the primary incentive, since past program evaluation results proved the travel incentive to be highly regarded by the participants and a strong motivator throughout the year. Question: How is it possible to expand participation in the incentive program to increase sales when with less funds to reward employees? Solution: The multi-level/tier program. Give participants the opportunity to win increasing levels of rewards based on their performance with higher tiers based on increased performance.
Case study #2: A group incentive that always included a trip abroad. Again, budgets have been reduced but the incentive travel program is the primary sales motivator. Question: How is it possible to keep the momentum up, especially at a time when sales are needed more than ever? Solution: A cruise. The all-inclusive packaging is exceptionally priced, although it's necessary to research the various cruise line offerings to make sure you're providing the group with the right level of on-board activity and, if applicable, required meeting or function space for the company's specific group gathering needs.
These case studies are an illustration of evaluation and research conducted to meet the desired effect and required program guidelines of a company. Peak worked with these clients during every step of the incentive travel planning process, and both clients continue to use travel as their primary source of employee incentive, harboring very successful results and great morale.
