Should I Give Gifts To My Staff?

10 Aug 2023

Rewarding employees is so much more than just a kind gesture. It’s been proven to positively impact the engagement, motivation and productivity of teams. In this blog, we’ll investigate the importance of rewarding employees.

Our corporate hampers are ideal for all occasions.


Why should you give gifts to your staff?

1. The Employee Engagement Puzzle:

Did you know that according to a report by Gallup's State of the Global Workplace, only 11% of UK employees feel engaged when they’re at work? This shows the importance of effective reward strategies as engaged employees are more committed, satisfied, and likely to stay with an organisation.


2. The Benefits of Employee Rewards:

Looking to build a positive work culture that encourages teamwork and boosts morale and motivation? Rewarding employees can do just that and has several benefits including increased job satisfaction and enhanced loyalty. It doesn't always need to be a grand gesture, a sweet treat or a round of iced lattes always goes down a treat and really boosts the spirit of the team!


3. Personalised Rewards Matter:

It’s important to remember that one size doesn't fit all when it comes to rewards. Personalised gifts that accommodate any dietary or cultural requirements and preferences will go a long way to making your employees or clients feel valued and included.

Did you know that according to the British Heart Foundation, the number of vegans has grown by 360% over the last 10 years? Keeping up to date with your team's dietary requirements is key to personalised gifting.


4. Food Hampers: A Delicious Delight:

As professional foodies, we understand that food has a unique way of bringing people together. That's why hampers make such great gifts for employees. A hand-selected hamper filled with treats, gourmet delights and artisanal goodies can delight taste buds and show that you value their hard work.


5. The Power of Surprise and Delight:

Surprising employees with a gift or an impromptu hamper can add excitement and a ripple effect of positivity. Rewarding staff spontaneously can delight and build towards you being an employer of choice.


6. The Long-Lasting Impact:

Gift-giving can leave a lasting impression that lingers far beyond the immediate moment. It can contribute to a feeling of well-being which in turn builds a positive work environment and boosts loyalty. Small gestures from employers can mean a lot to employers and are something that is remembered.



7. Corporate gifting facts:
