Gifting in any time or place always brings smiles to people's faces. Research shows that giving gifts can make you happy because giving gifts activates dopamine, or the happy hormone, in your brain. At work, giving gifts to your colleagues or team to celebrate wins and personal can boost camaraderie engagement.
Show your appreciation for employees anytime of the year with more reasons to give gifts:
1. Gifts for meeting specific objectives or milestones
Completing tasks that help companies move one step closer to achieving goals or targets deserve recognition. You can give a functional gift such as Bluetooth earphones from Digital Walker, or a portable vacuum from Latest Gadgets. Or you can simply give them the liberty to choose their own gift by giving a gift certificate such as the Sodexo Premium Pass.
2. Gifts to recognize performance
Rewarding based on consistent excellent performance or significant improvements are another way to inspire motivation and continued commitment . Some gift suggestions are digital GCs, a lunch buffet at Tong Yang, or a gift for daily use such as a laptop bag from Urbanize.
3. Gifts to commemorate personal events
Show that you care for your team's personal lives with gifts. Give the SM Gift Pass to help a newly married couple get a head start on their lives together. Wish a home cook teammate a happy birthday with cookware from Crate and Barrel. Welcome a colleague's baby into the world with a stroller from Baby Company.
4. Gifts to build team spirit
Acknowledge the hard work of your team and provide them an opportunity to relax, have fun, and create memories. Treat them to an overnight trip to a resort such as the Rancho Bernardo Luxury Villas & Resort.
