Incentive participants have a wide range of preferences when it comes to awards and what motivates them. And in a similar way, our readers have a range of preference when it comes to how they like to get their information about the industry - on our website, through newsletters sent to their inbox or via a print magazine they can toss in their carry-on bag. Now, Incentive is offering one more way to get insights into how to motivate people: the new Incentive podcast.

In this new podcast series from Incentive, we will be covering the numerous factors that shape an effective incentive program, from the goals set, how the program is promoted and targeted, and the ways awards are delivered in order to ensure the maximum impact.
