Chartering a private airplane for is no longer just for the Fortune 500 companies, it has become a more accessible way to travel for smaller businesses too. However, even a smaller business that has a plane likely only grants access to specific people in certain positions in the company. This means that you can use the company’s charter plane as an incentive in your company. Here are some of the benefits of how using private airplane charters as an incentive in your business can be beneficial to your company.
One of the best ways to use an airplane charter as an incentive for your employees is to use it as a way to reward employees for certain things. One study found that there was a 22 percent increase in employee performance after a new incentive program was implemented and after six months it rose to between 44 and 48 percent.
Employees want recognition for the hard work they put into a job, so offering an incentive program like this shows that you see the work they put into their job every day. This can boost employee morale.
You can even make a special incentive that gives the employee the plane for personal use and you put them up in a nice hotel for the night, potentially with a nice dinner and a show. Give them the opportunity of a lifetime. Making your employees feel that special is something that truly shows you see what they do, especially if it is a lower-ranking employee.
If those in your company often have to travel for work, offering them a charter plane is a good way to save time and boost your productivity. Think about it. When you need to fly somewhere, you have to arrive at the airport long before your flight to wait at the ticket counter and get through security. Plus, you are operating on the airline’s schedule. Going to meetings in two different cities or states in a single day is difficult, if not impossible when flying commercial. However, with a charter flight, it is doable, and you can be home in time for dinner.
Private planes also tend to be safer than commercial planes, since you have control over what and who is on the flight. Also, with the Coronavirus pandemic, a commercial airline will expose someone to more touchpoints than a private plane does. This shows your employees who need to travel right now that you care about their health and safety, and it will help decrease somewhat the risk of their exposure to the virus.
These are just some of the benefits of using a private plane as an incentive for your employees. All of these bring us back to one simple thing: showing your employees you care and you see what they do every day. While you may not have thought about chartering a private plane for your business before, you may want to consider it, because there are numerous advantages to using one.
