‘Tis the season to be jolly? Perhaps not, if you are an individual working additional hours or having taken on extra responsibilities for no financial gain. In fact, the festive season may fill your staff with dread rather than joy if they’ve missed out on their bonus or that promised pay rise due to the stagnating economy.
There are many reasons why the UK workforce may be feeling disgruntled this year, but a lack of staff rewards needn’t be one of them. If employers want to express their thanks for all the hard work that has been conducted throughout the year, then we’ve got the perfect selection of Christmas gifts for staff:
Perhaps you already know which retailer voucher or gift card you’d like to send to staff? We supply bulk orders of vouchers and gift cards to companies across the UK using our secure picking and packing facility. What’s more, if your order is large enough you could receive a discount on your purchase.
If you want something that’s guaranteed to appeal to all tastes but won’t get swallowed up alongside household bills then giving a voucher cheque could be the ideal solution for you. Voucher cheques give recipients access to over 40 different voucher types. The employer sends out cheques to lucky staff, notifying them of the value of their rewards. The recipient is then able to specify which type of voucher they would prefer and order them via an online portal or post. The Voucher Shop pick, pack and dispatch the cheques in time for the new year sales.
These prepaid cards make the ideal low cost Christmas reward. While they don’t offer an immediate cash reward they encourage staff to continue to utilise their card throughout the year and make cashback savings on purchases made in partner retailers. So for a low set up cost and £4.99 per card issued, an employee can earn over £500 a year in cashback, simply by using their MySpree card for purchases they would have had to make anyway.
Our vouchers can be placed within a bespoke personalised Christmas Card which is sent direct to each of your staff. Or you could add a personal touch by sending electronic thank you cards that are again, personalised to the individual.
A little bit of recognition goes a long way. Employees want to know that they are appreciated and that their efforts are contributing to the wider success of the organisation. Christmas is a time when the day to day expenses skyrocket and we all feel the pinch. Employers may not be able to dish out thousands of pounds in bonuses, but they should make an effort to show willing, after all, there are plenty of affordable alternatives out there.
We help companies to recognise the effort that their team has made throughout the year in an affordable manner that recipients will really appreciate. So if you’re looking for the perfect Christmas gift for staff then give us a call on 0845 050 8339 or complete a contact us form.
