5 Best Employee Appreciation Gifts Ideas in 2021

Importance of Staff Recognition -

As Fall approaches and we continue to further our transition back into the office, employee promotional kits and office swag is the perfect token of appreciation for your hard-working peers while they've been working from home.

Here are three reasons why you should use promotional kits to show staff appreciation this fall:

Employee Response -

Employees respond to appreciation expressed through recognition of their hard work because it confirms their work is valued by their bosses and their peers. When employees and their work are valued, their satisfaction and productivity rise, and they are motivated to maintain or improve their exceptional work. Self-esteem is one of the main factors driving success, and the better your employee feels about themselves, the better they will feel about their work.

Effective Leadership

Appreciative leaders are often appreciated, leaders. Not only is staff appreciation a friendly recognition of exceptional work, but can reinforce a positive and inclusive environment within your workplace. This can vary from branded merchandise, awards, and recognition, or simply creating space to allow an open and honest dialogue in the workplace.

Employment Longevity -

Commitment to recognition can ensure that employees stick around! Training new employees annually is costly and time-consuming, and one method to avoid turnover is ensuring that your employees feel valued. Employees that feel recognized and appreciated are less likely to begin looking for alternative work options.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Q. Can staff accept gifts?

A. gift policy must include a warning about influence. If workers receive a gift, they must make it clear to the giver, if necessary, that acceptance will not influence a decision. Workers should be polite and thank the giver. They must never give the impression, even in jest, that gifts lead to favours.

Q. Should bosses give gifts employees?

A. reliable rule of thumb regarding workplace gift giving: Gifts should flow down the supervisory reporting line, not upward. Thus, a boss or manager may give presents to direct reports, and employees can laterally exchange gifts with each other.

Q. What qualifies as a business gift?

A. According to the IRS, a business gift is a gift given "in the course of your trade or business." Some gifts could be classified as "entertainment," rather than a gift, for tax purposes -- like when you take a client to a baseball game.
