Your Turkey Gift to Employees is More Important than Ever
The pandemic has changed lives and dramatically changed our workplaces.
For many of us, we have lost the in-person connection with employees – the ability to smile, share a handshake or genuinely thank someone in person.
Employees need to feel secure right now in knowing that they are valued. If you have company holiday traditions that are near and dear to your team, respect them. Find a way to make them work in our new work world. Many employees are relying on that cash bonus or holiday turkey gift that they have always received.
Thanksgiving and the holiday season have always been an opportunity for workplace leaders to share their gratitude and appreciation to employees. Your appreciation and thanks are more important than ever this holiday season.
The gift of a Thanksgiving turkey has long been a valued and meaningful gift for employees. The tradition of turkey gift-giving is revered by many companies, and for some, distributing frozen turkeys is a beloved tradition that is decades old.
This year especially, the practical gift of food is something everyone can appreciate and can share with family. The gift of the centerpiece of the holiday meal is a truly meaningful and appreciated gift by all.

Pandemic Makes Frozen Turkey Gifts Unpractical and Unsafe
The reality of a literal gift hand-off this year brings about a variety of challenges.
Firstly, safety is paramount. Commitment to employee safety continues to be in the spotlight for good reason. The pandemic means leaders can’t go desk to desk shaking hands; gatherings of employees exchanging pleasantries and holiday goodies simply isn’t feasible or legal in some cases. And, a socially distanced line of masked employees to receive a frozen just isn’t that safe or appealing.
Secondly, many workforces are partially or wholly remote at this point making frozen turkey gift-giving logistics simply unfeasible.

Customers Agree! Don’t Just Take Our Word
Learn how one gThankYou customer found a safer, easier to manage way to share turkey gifts with a distributed workforce – while keeping the importance of the company tradition of Thanksgiving gratitude.
“As the company has grown, it’s become challenging to send frozen turkeys to all its employees. Some of the company’s locations have thousands of employees while others have only 10, and the vast range in needs made delivering the frozen turkeys complicated. Some employees, such as ones who work remotely, are not always on site when the frozen turkeys arrive, so the company would have to keep them frozen until they could retrieve them. Plus, trying to ship frozen turkeys to locations in warmer states added an additional layer of complexity.”
“Gifting the frozen turkeys was becoming more and more complicated, but the company didn’t want to give up the tradition. It was a gift that employees looked forward to each year — it’s something their whole family can enjoy.”
“The Turkey Gift Certificates have been a success for the company. Each year, the company’s order increases, with 4,000 employees receiving Turkey Gift Certificates in 2019.”
