Extra Incentive: Charity

It's that time of year when the trends for 2011 (for all areas of meeting and event planning) are being published. I am drilling down into each survey and study to look for the sustainable practices to share with you. That usually requires a lot of wading through budgetary items as in the "2011 Incentive Trends Survey" recently published in Corporate Meetings & Incentives Magazine.

In the fine print, the survey reveals, "Though 76 percent of incentive trips in 2000 included some meeting or training component, including CSR-oriented activities was unheard of back then. In this year’s survey, 35 percent of respondents included a charitable activity during their trips."

A 35% increase. Hats off to the incentive industry!
