Unique employee gift that keeps on giving Posted on November 6, 2019 under Blog, Champion Service. | no comments.Finding a unique employee gift isn’t easy. Knowing who to buy for and how much to spend can be tricky, especially for business owners and senior managers. You want to give employees something at the holiday that shows you appreciate their hard work and dedication.
There are several factors you should consider when selecting employee gifts.
- Your budget. Consider how much you want to spend and how much that is per employee. That will help decide if you do a companywide gift that everyone can enjoy, or you give individual gifts or bonuses.
- The size of your company. Not only will the number of employees impact the budget, but it also plays a role in the type of gift. For a small company that feels more like family, maybe you want to do something together, for example. Or, maybe a nice bonus that shares in the profits and success of the year.
- Employee expectations. If employees are expecting bonuses because that’s been standard practice, you should let them know if you are considering something different. You probably won’t have happy employees if they open an envelope expecting a big check but finding a gift certificate for a free ham. On the other hand, if they didn’t expect a gift, they’ll appreciate the gift certificate.
- Impartiality and fairness. Do you want to treat all employees equal or do you provide gifts based on job titles and/or seniority. There are pros and cons to both.
Unique employee giftWith all the factors to consider, what is the best employee gift? Here’s a unique idea that will show employees you appreciate them and benefit your business at the same time. Provide a service for employees such as professional dry cleaning.
A dry cleaner such as Champion Cleaners can pick up clothes at the office and drop them back off clean and pressed. The pickup and delivery service is free, too!
It may not sound like a very festive gift but it is one that can save employees time and money. It’s something they can use beyond the holidays. This will make employees feel appreciated, give them more time to spend with family and ensure they have crisp, clean professional clothes. They’ll feel good and look like a Champion on year long. So will you!
