What do we mean with the term incentive? Many use this term, but few know its true meaning, despite the many explanations that are given in different aspects. Incentive means nothing more than motivation, or the impulse to give the best of oneself in any area, from work to sport.
Being motivated means trying to improve and being willing to commit more than usual, making the most of your skills to gratify yourself and also those who have contributed to the motivation. It is easy to imagine, therefore, that practicing incentive initiatives within a company leads to a series of tangible benefits deriving from employee motivation, which results in greater productivity. Let’s see in detail what these advantages consist of.
Advantages of corporate incentive programs
The advantages of corporate incentive projects are found above all in the increased productivity, given by the enthusiasm that employees and collaborators apply to work, in the greater cohesion of the team, in the creation of a more serene and rewarding professional environment and even in economic bonuses. . Let’s analyze them one by one now, in order to better understand how to achieve these results.
Improvement of the professional environment
This is one of the most important and tangible advantages of well-organized incentive projects: if the employer is able to adequately motivate his collaborators, it will be natural for the professional environment as a whole to become more liveable and pleasant. Much of the responsibility lies with the employer, who will have to set a good example to create a harmonious environment, in which workers can enter with enthusiasm and without tension. All the other effects are only consequences of this first, simple advice.
Work with enthusiasm
It happened to everyone, especially after a long vacation, to get sad at the thought of having to go back to work, especially if you work in an environment full of conflicts and tensions with your employer or colleagues. Often incentive projects are aimed precisely at eliminating these tensions, which only demotivate workers and therefore affect productivity. It goes without saying that, if the workplace can be experienced with enthusiasm and even pleasure, the commitment of employees will also grow. In optimal conditions, the worker identifies himself with the company and has an interest in making it grow and prosper. A well-distributed incentive program, which serves to motivate all workers equally, will have a huge impact on productivity and will create a healthy and manageable level of competitiveness, based on the desire to give the best and not on the stress of confrontation.

Giving your best at work can mean many things. In some cases it will be individual performance, in others bond to the company and team spirit. Motivating a team also means encouraging the spirit of collaboration among its members. The team, of course, can be the entire company, but – in the case of very large companies with many employees – also a specific department. The productivity of a team depends on its members. A team of excellent professionals is only productive if all its members are willing to help and support each other. Corporate competitiveness is important, but solidarity must prevail within the team. Envy and disagreement can have devastating consequences on the productivity of a work group
Increase in productivity
In the long chain of advantages that derive from incentive projects, the apex is certainly the increase in the overall productivity of the company, which is a consequence of what has been said so far. Individual motivation translates into the desire to give the best, and within a team means collaborating, collaboration within a team increases its productivity and everything is reflected in the overall results of the company in a virtuous circle. Even in this case, therefore, it is impossible not to notice how to effectively motivate the employees, although it may be a long and complex process, is an effort that is systematically rewarded with tangible results.
Earnings and economic bonuses
When the company increases its productivity, and consequently increases its turnover, it is time to financially gratify the employees as well. This is the best incentive there is: rewarding commitment in this way guarantees the maintenance of a high level of motivation. It is important that this step is not neglected: team spirit is important, but we must not lose sight of the simple fact that employees are doing a job and that economic motivation is always decisive in this area.
Incentive travel has become one of the most popular forms of incentive programs ever. In fact, offering incentive trips to your employees means rewarding them by offering them something that is both economically valuable and humanly significant. In fact, traveling means first of all accumulating experiences, creating memories and growing on a personal level. What distinguishes an incentive trip from simply “taking a vacation” is the fact that this type of experience often transcends what the employee would buy for himself and not just economically. Choosing an incentive destination, in fact, often means making use of facilities designed for business travel, which offer particularly high standards of service. In addition, incentive trips are often combined with team building activities and enriched by a series of benefits, which make the experience particularly rich and meaningful.
