Groceries are a great spring gift

No matter how you and your team celebrate spring, the practical gift of groceries is something that will resonate with everyone in a meaningful way. Grocery store gift certificates are one gift that is always welcomed and appreciated by all.

Spring Brings Hope and Renewal

Did you know that increased hope comes from nature itself?

Mental Floss reported on scientific reasons why spring is a delightful season. Here are just a few:

  • After the spring equinox, days get longer, and nights get shorter! Daylight-Saving Time means even more light hours, which can boost moods!
  • Birds migrating north means cheerful chirps and colorful sights. A British study found that people’s mental health was better when they could see and hear more birds in their neighborhoods!
  • A University of Michigan study showed a link between spending 30 minutes or more outside in the sunnier, warmer spring air and better moods and memory (additionally, being outdoors also increased participants’ capacity to be open to new information and creative thoughts).
  • More varieties of vegetables and fruits are harvested in the spring (think asparagus, peas, rhubarb, etc.) and consuming more fruits and vegetables into your diet is good for the body and the mind.

Encourage Spring Cleaning

Looking to engage employees during this seasonal transition? We associate spring cleaning with de-cluttering and welcoming in the optimism of spring.

Spring cleaning can be a fresh way to welcome the season at work whether employees are in the office, working remotely, or a mix of both. The clarity that comes through decluttering will help increase positivity and productivity.

So encourage spring cleaning at home and at the office! If on site, provide supplies and some time. For off-site employees, consider providing a stipend for supplies. And for a job well done, send all participants grocery gift certificates!

Here are some ideas to consider (and ask employees what they suggest):

  • Dedicate a day to spring cleaning where people can really dig in and make progress!
  • Schedule a shred day. Make it a community event, if possible!
  • Tie in an IT desktop/laptop spring cleaning. Software updates up to date? New tools or services? Return and recycle old technology.
  • Reward employees who donate clothes, office supplies and household items to local charities (the prize could be a gift certificate to a professional cleaning service or storage supplies from Ikea or The Container Store).
  • Start a company-wide “Little Library” and ask staff to donate books.
  • Give everyone a spring plant to brighten up the office!

What would you enjoy as a spring-cleaning activity or reward?
