Top sales performers need top rewards and some executives find that taking everybody out to dinner a couple of times a month is a great way to show appreciation.
But for those star performers a more exotic reward could be in order and an even better way to reward that special one in your team is a life-changing trip. If you’ve got the budget in place, why not take everybody somewhere truly exotic, like Costa Rica?
Punta Islita is one of the best getaways you can give that star talent. The resort has a spa, a beach club, a golf course, and plenty of guided activities for those who want to get out and explore the scenery and culture of Costa Rica.
Among other things, Punta Islita is very proud of its sustainability programme. Unlike other resorts that bill themselves as “green” because they’ve switched to CFLs and only change the sheets when asked, this resort is the real deal. It has achieved the highest certification possible in Costa Rica.
In addition to sustainable practices on site, Punta Islita has paired with the ARA Project, a non-profit organisation that is working to improve the local red and green macaw population. These beautiful birds are both on the endangered list.
From its inception to its now globally recognized status as a sustainable vacation destination, Punta Islita has worked to reverse the effects deforestation and cattle ranching have had on the local environment. It has employed a growing number of locals and has worked hard to educate both locals and tourists on how to empower local communities with regard to sustainable practices.
With regard to services, Punta Islita is often used as a destination wedding location. This means it’s a great getaway for large groups who have a lot in common, like a selection of your top employees. Resort staff are also professionally equipped to deal with large events like receptions and banquets, which makes it an ideal location for conventions and junkets.
This resort is also set up to be a family vacation destination so employees who want to bring along kids, significant others, etc., can all be accommodated, and because the resort is so vast, you might even be able to encourage your team to do a little bit of work whilwell as personal or reward purposes.
