"Incentives Move Business – Part 2

Incentive Travel: The Smart Business Proposition"

   

This second installment in the "Incentives Move Business" series focuses on how incentive travel and motivational events, when properly designed, can help companies achieve many corporate business objectives and provide a measurable return on investment.

"Incentives Move Business – Part 3

Risk Assessment / Management for Incentive Events"

     

When motivational events are impacted by weather or natural disasters, government or labor unrest, disruption of transportation, medical emergencies, or acts of terrorism or violence, the effects can vary greatly and frequently one reaction is to resort to legal action. As a result, mitigating risk is a vital consideration that should be addressed at the onset of motivational programs and events.
