- What to Expect
Kickstarting productivity with incentive trips
In a position of power, specifically owning a business, the likelihood is that you’re going to have to manage people. Unfortunately, managing people is exceptionally hard. Whilst one week they might be exceeding what you expect, the next they might be well below what you expect. If a group are always exceeding, however, it can be difficult to know what to do. Should you reward them, or should you do nothing and hope their hard work continues? Well, with incentive trips, you can tackle both the issue of overachieving staff members as well as those who aren’t pulling their weight.
What are incentive trips?
Incentive trips can be trips that the employer funds for their staff. There’s multiple reasons why they might fund these trips, such as the two reasons that we mentioned above. There’s lots of different types of trips with lots of different budgets so that no matter the size of your business, incentive trips are an option.
One reason that an employer might pay for an incentive trip is to motivate their staff. If their staff aren’t currently performing very well, an incentive trip can reinvigorate them and help them to enjoy their work again instead of work feeling like a chore. Knowing they will be able to go on an incentive trip also will motivate them to do better.
Another reason can be as a reward to staff who are exceeding expectations to ensure that they keep up performing well in the future. For example, if a group of staff have consistently been more successful than expected, they can be rewarded with an incentive trip. This means that they know their hard work is valued and they will aim to achieve the same results – or better – in the future.
The same incentive trip can help with both of these reasons. If you invite all your staff to take part, regardless of whether they’re overachieving or underachieving, you will be rewarding those who are doing well and motivating those who currently aren’t.
An Incentive trip can also be combined with a staff or company meeting/conference, and ATM can combine the 2 aspects of work and reward when putting together your proposal package.

Electrical Manufacturer Company – Incentive Trip
Our client approached us to plan them an incentive trip for a group of 50 people. This trip was to have excellent accommodation as well as great conference facilities. and they also wanted us to throw in something fun and different to make their trip that little bit more exciting and entertaining.
We provided our client with a wide selection of venue options from Monte Carlo, Rome, Berlin and Spain. Our client decided on Spain, Alicante in a Beautiful hotel located near to the Marina. As part of the event, we arranged flights and transfers to and from the airport and managed their 2-day conference at the hotel. We also arrange a private Gala Dinner for the group on the last night which included entertainment from a local fabulous Spanish dancing group.
On the final day, we arranged for the group to go on a private catamaran boat trip, where all the guests took in the beautiful scenery and enjoyed the company of their colleagues. The afternoon ended back at the Marina where they had a luxury BBQ and drinks arranged for everyone to end the successful event.
Overall, the whole trip was a great success and left our clients feeling exceptionally pleased as the trip contained a pleasant flow which allowed everyone to enjoy themselves.
