    We used Pizza Parties as a team incentive to complete our last employee engagement survey. It worked a treat with every team who had 100% completion being entered in to a competition to win a Pizza Party for the whole team (and some teams were 50+ people!). With over 2200 employees, we were looking for an 80% response rate but with the amount of teams going for the 100% we got a 89% rate in the end, which was a great achievement.
