Industry Forecast: Sunny and 85 (The Ultimate Job Perk, an Incentive Trip)

We have the best job perks out there. Our workplace incentives give our workers something to get excited about. Read the blog for more info.

Our people are going places

That's not just a figure of speech here at Granite Logistics. We believe everyone works much better after a little R&R. Companies constantly set goals and work all quarter, or even all year, to achieve them. For most, what happens after you achieve said goal? Well you sit down and make new goals of course. Don't get us wrong, we're setting new goals all the time, but we believe there is much more drive to complete goals when we throw a few workplace incentives into the mix.

When we set goals at Granite Logistics, we try to make a few perks of the job known to our employees. One of these job benefits is the trip of a lifetime. Each of our employees have the opportunity to go on a trip to anywhere they desire if goals are hit for the year. We've found that this is one of the highest performing job benefits and is something that our employees adore.

Why do we believe trips are one of the greatest incentives for an employee? Because very few companies have an incentive like it. A $3,000 or $4,000 bonus is awesome and people would be very thankful, but most won’t remember where they spent that money. People will and do remember a trip. A bonus of a life experience is invaluable. We also believe it drives people towards a group goal that much more.

Our employees use these trips to go to a variety of destinations: Europe, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Mexico, Vail, Colorado, and Scottsdale are just a few of the ones we've seen. When you work with us, exploring the world is just one of the perks of the job. 

We're no stranger to incentives in the workplace, and we've seen a few during our tenures at other businesses, but employees tell us that they love this set of workplace incentives because they can explore foreign countries that require a heavy investment. 

But you're not limited to anything. We've had ski trips and cruises, as well as a simple golf trip or two in the past few years. The benefit of this incentive is that you can go where you've always wanted to go.

But maybe you're still a little skeptical, so we have a few testimonials from our employees. Take a look at them and see how Granite Logistics has crafted one of the best incentives programs for employees.

"My wife and I were able to use our goal trip to travel to Rome and Florence for a week. It was an amazing trip filled with great sightseeing, food, and wine. Knowing we can take trips like this every year by hitting team goals really motivates me to continue to push above expectations, as well as encouraging the entire Granite team to keep growing."

Work hard, play harder

Keeping an employee working hard requires an employer to have some perks of the job that enable you to play even harder. At Granite, that's exactly the program we've crafted. Workplace incentives are good at other businesses too, but we're extremely proud of the one that we use. Granite's workplace incentives programs provide employees with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that they wouldn't be able to get anywhere else. 

Trips are one of the greatest employee benefits, and we'll stand by that statement for as long as it makes our workers happy. If you're interested in working with us and cultivating one of the most unique job benefits out there, drop us a line and apply for a position with us.
