Incentives are a great way of employee recognition and encouragement. For a company, incentives are a way of motivating the employees to stay motivated and for an employee, it’s a form of appreciation from the employer. Incentives play a vital role both for the company & its employees. Employees work with all their honesty and spend 8-9 hours daily in the office. After spending so much time in their respective offices, it is evitable that each one of them gets emotionally attached to the company.
As we now know the importance of Incentives in a company, it becomes important to make it a memorable one for the employee. Gifting the age-old gift cards and shopping vouchers have now become a tradition in various companies. What’s more disappointing thing about these types of incentives is: Everybody, literally everybody! uses them to buy some daily routine stuff or something which their family wants. This way those incentives lose their “charm” and soon get eroded from the memories of the recipients too!
I think no company would want that, so let us break corporate culture monotony of incentives and try something cool enough to keep the employees motivated to work more dedicatedly.
The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.” –Charles Dudley Warner, American Essayist and Novelist
