It will not only make them engaged in the office, but it will also boost productivity and job satisfaction. Picking the gifts may seem easy - and it is - you can give one when they hit a milestone, or to celebrate an event, but if you really want to let them know how much you appreciate them, a bit of planning goes a long way.
So, why is giving them a gift matter and how can you do it right? We recommend the following several best practices:
Create a campaign or budget just as you would when giving sales prospects or marketing gifts. Create an outline of your campaign and plan on how your employees will receive them (for example, they’ll receive it via mail or it’ll be on their desk when they come in to work)
Practice the power of personalization - make it feel like the gift is selected specifically for them which will make a great impression.
Make your gift-giving a year-round effort. It’s expected to give holiday gifts, but something that they receive on an unexpected day (anniversary or birthday) is more impactful for your employees.
