I always believe that giving a reward to somebody for a job well done is a great motivating factor. Even in children, you can see how rewards are being treated. They take it very seriously. An increase in allowances or having a toy jar where in you place a tip on how well they does their chores without being told are few incentive tactics you can implement.So does with employees and/or the sales force, implementing incentive programs is very much ideal to achieve company sales goals. When I was still employed and handling thousands of direct sellers, I have proven that they really work hard to achieve their sales quotas if you present them with motivating rewards. Though how meager the rewards is, they will happily work for it as long as they get it for FREE and get recognized along the way.
As for the staffs I handled, employee recognition gives a boost to their work performances. It allows them to give their very best despite the workload challenges. Sometimes we worked beyond our office hours but they work eagerly because I gave out simple rewards as to recognize the sacrifices they have given in to achieve company goals.
Anyway, if you want to implement incentive programs but don’t have any idea, I found a website, Online-Rewards.com, that has ton loads of incentive programs that can help you reward your employees, sales performers and the like to help achieve that much needed company results.
