To retain staff, it is important that you show them your appreciation for their hard work. There will be certain team members who will give that little bit extra. There are also others who earn more than their fellow employees, simply because of the role they play in your company. These employees can be rewarded accordingly, but it is important that you never leave anyone out. All staff should get recognition; this can be a positive powerful tool for you.
Bouquets are not only made up of flowers. You can get bouquet arrangements made from cookies or chocolates. Balloon bouquets often have a bottle of champagne or soft toy as the centrepiece. These can all be ordered at the once and delivered on the same day. This gift contains an element of surprise and the look of delight on the faces of your staff will be worthwhile.
If you take time to know a little about the personality of your team members, there is a large selection of gift vouchers available, ranging from department store vouchers, massages, adventure vouchers, accommodation or dining vouchers. Movie vouchers are always appreciated as well.
A Great Memory
If you provide something indulgent and luxurious, your employees will never forget it! Gifts like theatre tickets with a limousine transfer, treatment at a 5 star spa or a night’s accommodation with breakfast at an opulent resort is a memory they will treasure forever. Try to think of gifts that will leave your employees with long lasting lingering memories of the amazingly extravagant time they have had. You will be surprised at how invigorated and excited they will be.
There is a huge array of personalised gifts that you can order online, from monogrammed portfolios to iPad cases, ceramic or travel mugs and personal diaries; the list is limited only by your imagination.
There are many online companies who will organise the makeup and delivery of gift baskets. Baskets are suitable for both male and female and cater to a wide range of tastes. The convenience is that this can be done online at any time. Make sure you attach a business card to the basket with a personal handwritten note on it.
Organise an All Expenses Paid Dinner
This does not have to be an end of year gathering. You could simply organise this as a thank you for employees at any time of the year.
Depending on the financial position of your company, an end of year bonus is always appreciated.
Niceties are something that no employee will forget. You will be rewarded with less leave taken and higher productivity. If you can get to know your employee’s personal likes and dislikes, they will appreciate the trouble you have gone to to give them a personalised gift. They will understand that you have actually taken an interest in them. Don’t forget that your employees do have lives outside of your company. Give them the recognition they deserve and you will all receive the benefit of this gesture.
