Activate has been certified with ISO 9001:2015 accreditation!
At Activate, we have always taken great pride in the high standards of service that we provide to our clients…and we have received many ‘rave reviews’ for the quality of our work in delivering events all around the world.
However, as Activate continues to grow and evolve, we also recognise that we cannot stand still; continuous review and improvement of the way we function as a business is critical to our success, both now and in the future.
We have therefore invested considerable time and effort this year in reviewing the fundamentals of what we do, how we do it…and why.
Incentive travel…the key to staff engagement?
Incentive travel…the key to staff engagement? -According to a report by Gallup last year, only 13% of employees worldwide are fully engaged, (i.e. involved, enthusiastic & committed), to their work and employer.
While many large companies believe firmly in the principle that the biggest driver for their employees is financial gain, many studies indicate that it’s the non-cash incentives, particularly travel, that have the greatest impact on personal motivation and performance – and ultimately, create the longest lasting value for the business.
Generally speaking, people are uncomfortable with boasting about their income to family or friends because it’s “not the done thing”. Similarly, whilst spending vast sums of your own money on a lavish holiday to an exotic destination might be perceived as frivolous, winning and participating in a hard-earned incentive is perfectly acceptable and creates a higher level of personal self-esteem than a cash bonus added to the monthly pay-check.
In addition, we live in a society today where international travel is much more easily accessible – both financially and logistically, which means most employees would now consider themselves to be reasonably “well-travelled” at least within their own region of the world.
