Business owners – the good ones, at least – recognize the value of their employees to the business’ success. What they might not know is how to make sure these employees are constantly taken care of and put in a good place. After all, that is how they are going to be of more value to you. Before you dismiss that idea, know that gift-giving is a model which works wonders. Not just for your employees but for your business too.
Corporate Gifts boost morale
When your employees work and get paid, they don’t have to be appreciative. To be candid, their payment is just your fulfilment of your part of the agreement. Throw in an extra gift, for nothing at all, and watch how they light up. No matter how small the gift you might get is, it does pass a message across. As subtly as possible, it shows everyone that their efforts over the course of the year hasn’t gone unnoticed.
It also goes on to strengthen their resolves towards making even more stuff happen in the coming year. Should you have burnt bridges with any members of the team, a simple gesture like this is sure to start the rebuilding process.
It improves productivity
Happy people are more productive than unhappy people. We have never seen a healthy situation where reverse was the case.A verbal appreciation for those you work with shows that you saw what they are doing/ did and felt satisfied enough to comment on it. A written recommendation means you have taken the time to go over what they have done and then, awarded them some nice words for it. A Gift, on the other hand, shows that you have taken the time to select something for them.
It improves brand appeal
It is a fact that all brands will always want to attract the best and brightest minds. On the other hand, the best minds will only want to work for a company/ business that appreciates them. Starting out with Christmas gifts (as well as other seasonal incentives) is a right step in setting you up as an employer of preference.
No matter how you look at it, giving employees gifts is a win-win situation for everyone. They are happy, your business is better for it, and your company also shines in a better light.
