Our incentive programmes reward staff members who work hard while embracing our values.   

Let's Fly is the Metropolitan sales incentive programme that houses all our sales incentives under one umbrella. 

The Overseas Bonanza is our premium reward programme for our top sales performers. It represents the highest accolade within the Metropolitan Channel, and top achievers are rewarded with an overseas getaway hosted by the Metropolitan Life CEO and Head of Channel.

The Captain's Challenge rewards top performers in the intermediate categories. These achievers will be rewarded with an incentive trip at an elite venue within South Africa, or a nearby country or island.
