TRAVIS: OUTDATED INCENTIVES AND MOTIVATION TACTICS
“Gift cards, cash and swag and stuff. Is that really like, does that really matter to people? Is that really still the thing we're doing to motivate sales?”
TRAVIS: TIME TO DECONSTRUCT INCENTIVE PROGRAMS
“I just started kind of thinking about like, Well, how do we like, deconstruct these crappy incentives, like President's Club, for example, it's like three months into an annual incentive, you already know who's gonna win, and so demotivates 80% of the team.”
