The Incentive Company

Performance Improvement | Happy staff = happy customers | Improve your bottom line

Welcome to The Incentive Company, the experts who translate your Performance Improvement needs into success stories. Making you look good!

At The Incentive Company we are passionate about improving people's performance - about rewarding them for their efforts and about achieving great results for our clients. We believe that people perform better when motivated, and that engaged staff improve a brand. Happy staff = happy customers. We believe it, we live it and we can deliver it to your company. We welcome the opportunity to become your incentive partner, and improve your bottom line. We are in the business of changing behaviour.

The Incentive Company specialises in the following services:

Sales Channel Incentive Programmes

Sales Channel Incentives are the BEST way to improve the performance of those people selling your brand who you don't have a direct relationship with. You need them to be loyal to your brand, to promote your brand and to make your customer experience the first prize interaction you long for it to be. We can help with solutions that will ensure these objectives are realised.

Internal staff Reward and Recognition Programmes

Have you noticed how HARD it is to motivate your staff these days? The entitled Generation Y tribe, the disillusioned Gen X'ers. To improve your company culture, to ensure that everyone is performing to their maximum and living the company values, give us a call – we know how hard it is to get this right – and we can help!

Performance Improvement Programmes

To get your team to go the extra mile. To have them hungry to meet their targets. To excel in their performance – to build bottom line profits. Sound good? Need some help to make it happen? Give us a call.

Reward Fulfillment

So, you have got your Incentive and Recognition programmes all sorted! But sourcing those rewards takes time, and you don't have time. We have a full range of rewards to offer, from gift cards, to virtual rewards, to travel solutions. So give us a call, and we will come running!

Incentive Travel

Who doesn’t get inspired by the promise of a luxurious travel incentive trip, where every detail is taken care of, mind blowing experiences are the norm, and lasting memories are created – by your brand! We deliver travel incentives that do the extraordinary – proudly partnering with industry legends Johan Venter and Tara Walker of Urban Ginga fame.
