3 Reasons Why Employee Gifting Is Always Worth the Investment

Like your clients, your employees play a big role in the success of your business. Employee gift giving is a great way to show that you recognize and appreciate all of your team’s hard work. Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of taking the time to show appreciation to your employees, and why employee gifts are a great business investment.

Improves Morale

A well-timed gift has the potential to drastically improve someone's day. A meaningful employee gift can be useful in helping improve team morale, which is especially important now that many of us are largely disconnected from our coworkers. According to a Staples Advantage survey, 75% of employees that were given gifts said it enhances morale. Adding a boost of positive energy to your team can go a long way in improving morale across your team, which makes work more enjoyable for both you and your employees.

Impacts Loyalty

If improving morale is not enough, employee gift giving can also help with building loyalty. A whopping 80% of employees in a Swarovski corporate gift giving study said that corporate gifts create a stronger sense of loyalty. Interestingly, this increased to 90% of the employees that were high income earners. By giving your employees a gift, you not only make them feel valued, you also increase their likelihood of staying with your company longer. Thanks to The Great Resignation, many companies are finding it harder than ever to retain top talent. Step one in any retention effort should be making employees feel seen and appreciated. Read here for more tips on how to attract and retain millennial talent.

Increases Motivation

If you want to motivate your employees, try sending them a gift. Another shocking result of the Swarovski corporate gift giving study was that 80% of employees felt that corporate gifts made them feel motivated to meet or surpass their performance targets. For high income earning employees, this increased to 82%.
