Incentive Drives’ Behavior: Why French Polynesia is an ideal Location for your next incentive program

Anyone who has ever been employed knows that one of the key factors in job satisfaction (and, ultimately, productivity) is feeling motivated. While there are many ways to achieve this, creating the right incentive program—a system in which employees are given tangible rewards for meeting or exceeding specific goals—is one of the most effective methods.  

Painting a picture of a trip to paradise is one way to jump start the drive to exceed company goals.  When it comes to French Polynesia, the crystal-clear waters, coral reefs, white sandy beaches, rainforest and lush green mountains help crystalize a vision for success.  SHW team members went out to the Society Islands, a small archipelago within the country of French Polynesia, and offer the following insights for celebrating the success of your team's accomplishments.

Nothing beats the Overwater Suites & Abundance of 5-Star Resorts

The SHW team stayed at La Taha’a and LOVED the property, the authenticity of the staff, the spectacular snorkeling, and the overall experience.  From the Raiatea Airport, we were “lei” greeted by hotel boat captains and escorted from baggage claim to the covered boat taxi for a 30-minute crossing to the resort.

The perfect venue for igniting your inner child sense of adventure, broadening your mindset while pampering you with 5-Star service.  This unique combination will leave any guest feeling rejuvenated!

Exceptional Airport Access | another good reason why SHW likes this tropical paradise for your next incentive program.

The SHW team flew United Airlines SFO – PPT non-stop in Polaris Business Class. The comfort level will make you feel right at home while flying commercial across international borders and offers the award-winning Polaris lounge access.

Great Restaurants to visit…..they sounded so touristy we almost didn't go, which would have been a great mistake!
