Why Company Holiday Gifts are Worth Investing In
Tis the season to be jolly! Well… almost. Even though you’re in the zone of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, it’s time to start planning ahead for the holidays!
Have you thought about what you’re gifting your team this year? We’ll let you in on a secret: company holiday gifts matter! (And are well worth the investment.)
Employee gifts can make employees feel noticed and valued.
According to a survey by The Knack Shops, 81% of employees say they feel appreciated when they receive gifts from their employer. A simple gift gesture goes a long way! We’re not just talking about mugs with your company logo on them. You could do a custom cutting board or even a high-quality backpack. Your gift-giving will positively influence an employee’s perspective of your company, which will help your morale thrive!
The right employee gift can make employees feel more connected to the company and more likely to want to stay.
As we briefly mentioned in our previous point, a thoughtfully chosen gift will earn the loyalty of your team. The more loyalty you have from your employees, the more likely they will stay on your team! When sincere effort is shown, it makes a difference in your company’s employee retention. And trust us, gift recipients can always tell when it’s out of obligation. You can read more about the importance of employee engagement here.
Bottom line: Appreciation has a high ROI.
Your employees make your business what it is. Showing appreciation will make your team feel good about themselves – if it’s done the right way, of course.
Develop healthy corporate culture – especially during the busy holiday season.
The difference between a good company and a great company is… drumroll please a healthy culture. Taking the time to pick out a quality gift for your team is an easy way to let them know that their hard work matters.
It’s the perfect way to end the year on a high note – your employees have killed it this year, after all! When their friends and family ask your team how work is going over holiday ham, they’ll think back fondly on the year they’ve spent with your company.
Thanking your staff is an investment that will pay off in the long run. Go the extra mile this holiday season and give a gift your staff will never forget!
