Corporate Gift - Giving has been around for a long, long time.
All over the world, it plays a huge role in forging relations at work and brings about warmth and rapport between employees and employers, and even clients. Of lately, corporate gifting has witnessed an increase as it is an excellent way to appreciate the hard work and dedication as well as the sincere efforts put in by employees all throughout the year. With busy schedules and hectic timelines, it is often difficult to display this gratitude all throughout the year. But with the holiday season and glee and laughter all around, it makes for the perfect time to give one's employees a token of thankfulness and appraisal. Business relationships all over the globe are maintained through the right kind of presents to exhibit one's gratitude.
In our country, corporate gift exchange takes place in full swing around the time of Diwali- the most awaited holiday season of the year! Up till a few years ago, Corporate Gifting was synonymous with giving flowers, diaries, calendars and pens. These simple, monotonous gifts have no personal touch to them and barely spark any excitement or joy in the receivers. This monotony remains unless the presents given are truly one of a kind and have the ability to make an employee or a client feel warmly appreciated.
We, at Bigsmall.in, aim to bring about a sweeping change in the existing norms in the sphere of Corporate Gifting. We would like to establish a new kind of gifting – one that would bring about gratitude as well as delight.
Tips for Corporate Gifting
A personalized gift creates a much bigger impact on the mind of the receiver and makes it far more memorable than one that is plain. It makes the entire event of having received a gift far more warm and jolly. Take some time to put in thought about what your employees would really like and pick gifts that you think reflect their interests.
2. Make a statement with the gift
A corporate gift should emphasize the values of the company, at the same time exhibiting appreciation and recognition for an employee's hard work.
3. Presentation Matters
Packaging matters just as much as the gift does! Make sure that your corporate presents are nicely wrapped, attached with a handwritten note and delivered in person to each employee. The surprise of a beautifully wrapped gift makes a huge impact.
4. Put some thought
When you are picking gifts for business partners, put in some deep thought. What message are you trying to send across with your gift? Does the gift establish the company's motto and ideals as well? The wrong gift could make a bad impression of your company in the eyes of a partner, so it's best to keep in mind the kind of rapport you share with your business partners.
What Employees Really Want
1. Most employees would rather prefer non-typical gifts from their employers. So, get creative! Instead of churning out a bulk of official calendars, year diaries or apparel with blatant company insignia, think out of the box. Try to drift away from the mundane gifts that corporate presents are associated with.
2. Holiday 'gifts' that employees often prefer are 'thank you' notes or a lavish, fancy holiday party. A thank you note can go a long way in really getting across that gratitude shown by the company towards the employees' regular diligence and efforts. A party, on the other hand, is a great way to unwind and celebrate after the routine of tedious work for months, right before the holiday season!
3. Gift Cards can be a great way to give back to your employees without really having to think too much about what to get them. It's a versatile gift and suitable for people of all ages. They get to pick the presents that they really want- could it get any better? This way, you ensure that the gift is their own choice and something they want and would get definite use out of.
4. Personalized Gifts are a great idea for gifting. Whether you got bottles printed with the employee's name, journals made especially for them, unique products that are customized or tailor-made to their preference, it lends a really personal feel to the gift and makes your employee feel immensely values.
4. A better work space is something any employee would love to have. After all, there is an increasing chunk of hard-working people who spend more of their hours awake in the office rather than in their homes. Is it not highly important to make sure that their work space is as comfortable and welcoming as it could get? With a little renovation here and there along with making the whole environment of the office warmer and more hospitable can do wonders in making your employees feel more looked after.
