Why Incentives Show Your People They Matter

Motivation Excellence

The contributions of every employee, channel partner, distributor, vendor, and supplier matter to your company’s bottom line. When everyone involved with the health of your company contributes something that adds value, the company grows and prospers. Their positive impact deserves recognition. It’s an easy equation: If a person is valued at your business, making sure they feel valued in return is good for everyone. Enter incentives.

The types of incentives we help create, like points programs, personalized rewards, and group travel experiences represent a way for organizations to personally show appreciation to the people who matter most to its success. The incentives are more than just tangible rewards. They are an emotional connection that helps create loyalty, longevity and stability.

We all want to feel valued. We all want to know that what we do every day, whether at work, home, or elsewhere, matters to the world around us. Incentives create an extra benefit for those who help carry your company to the next level. 

The Cure for Quiet Quitting

The 2020 pandemic ushered in a lot of changes. In the business world, it was responsible for what we now call the Great Resignation. In turn, this gave way to the practice of quiet quitting. We are guessing you are at least somewhat familiar with this phenomenon.

Quiet quitting is the result of employees being unsatisfied with their work. It is the result of them feeling like they do not matter, which is a side-effect of being unengaged with leadership and colleagues. 

Someone who isn’t satisfied or feels unrecognized at work can start to feel apathetic, which affects their work output and attitude. If apathy lingers for too long a time, a person could end up doing just enough to get by and no more. This lack of engagement with your company’s goals and mission can be solved with metric-driven programs that show your teams you recognize their accomplishments and efforts. 

Things Change When a Person Matters

We don’t want quiet quitting – for either you or us. That’s why we work so hard to create data-driven incentive programs that achieve meaningful results. When we can help a client develop an incentive program that motivates genuine excellence in the workplace, we achieve the primary goal of increasing your bottom line while creating meaningful engagement from the top down.

According to the American Psychological Association, people who feel valued in what they do are more satisfied, creative, and willing to take risks in the hope of making a positive impact. To us, that is what incentives are all about.

Incentives add tangible value to a person’s contributions and emotional bonds tying them to your company. Incentives give people a reason to be creative and take risks. Incentives motivate, inspire, and encourage people to be the best they can be no matter what they do.

Show Your People They Matter

Right now, you are probably thinking of a select group of people you might want to motivate and reward for positive behavior that leads to better business for you. Perhaps it’s your employees, your sales team or distribution partners. Maybe it’s a group of independent contractors you rely on for key functions. If their contributions to your organization truly matter, show them. When they know how much they matter to you, they’ll be motivated to put in the time and effort to make contributions they believe will make a positive difference for you.
