In our consumer-driven society, a growing number of medium- and higher income recipients literally “have everything.” This is where experiential awards can play a big role.

To address these “wants,” travel and other experiential awards are becoming extremely popular award choices. For a football fanatic, it could be an all-inclusive trip to the Super Bowl or the World Cup — depending on her brand of football. It could be a trip to Disney World for an entire family or a day to relax at the spa.

The memories created by these experiences reinforce employees’ great work and go a long way towards thanking their families for the time and sacrifice that drove their success.
