Disney not only provides a productive service to the customers but also to their employees as well. Disney uses various reinforcement strategies and incentive to motivate their employees.
Disney offers much insurance to ease the worries of their employees and to meet their needs, to name a few insurances they offer include 1.vision, 2.dental, 3.life, 4.medical, 5.home, and 6. pet for assurance. Employees also receive their pay weekly along with annual pay increases and bonuses based on work experience, job title, and performance.
For leisure and for an opportunity to relax from the stress of work and everyday life, employees receive free admission passes to all Disney parks, discounts at Disney restaurants and recreation, resort hotel price reductions and wellness programs employees can join.
For the advancement of employee skills and knowledge and for the benefit of the company, all employees receive training on matters involving professional development, technology advancements, and how to become more knowledgeable in the business. Along with these trainings, all employees have the opportunity to advance their skills by attending a Disney college that offers programs such as web design, human resources, finance, programming, accounting, and marketing, just to name a few.
