They have a strong sales team who are all highly motivated as a result of incentives such as four annual holiday targets including Vegas and Marbella, monthly lunch clubs at some of London’s top restaurants, free gym and spa membership for every employee, highly competitive commission structure, monthly massages and frequent company events such as annual boat party. These name only a few of the company’s amazing incentives. One that is particularly unique to X4 is the 4 holiday targets, they have a number of Director 'Wild Cards' for every trip.

This is effective as it encourages everyone to work extremely hard in all areas even when they may not be as close to hitting target as they had hoped.
