It’s that time of year again: time to start planning your Thanksgiving turkey gift for employees!
A new book about Thanksgiving coming out in October, from journalist and Hudson Institute senior fellow Melanie Kirkpatrick, calls it “the holiday at the heart of the American experience.”
Thanksgiving is also at the heart of a workplace tradition going back generations. Companies have been sharing a Thanksgiving turkey gift with employees for at least a century.
And Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! It’s hard to imagine now in this summer season of pool parties and beach reading, but soon enough, trees will be turning colors to glow gold and crimson, farmers’ markets will be overflowing with ripe apples, gourds and squash, and the air will be filled with the smell of pumpkin spice.
Plan ahead — yes, in August! — for a relaxed and joyous Thanksgiving workplace celebration. The earlier you plan ahead for your company Thanksgiving turkey gift, the less last-minute scrambling you’ll have to do.
Plan now and you’ll also have more time in November to focus on the most important part of any Thanksgiving celebration in the workplace: recognizing and thanking employees.
You’ve been learning about and exercising employee recognition strategies all year — now put them into action with a thoughtful Thanksgiving turkey gift!
Thanksgiving Turkey Gift Planning
Why a Turkey Gift Certificate?
gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificates are America’s favorite Thanksgiving turkey gift for employees. Recipients can redeem them for Any Brand of turkey, any preparation, at virtually Any Major U.S. Grocery Store. We’re taking orders now for Thanksgiving.
Rest easy — here at gThankYou, we’ve perfected the art of the Thanksgiving turkey gift. Back when the workplace turkey gift tradition started, employers handed out a frozen turkey to every employee. While well-intentioned, the process was:
- Cumbersome. (Frozen birds are heavy!)
- Awkward. (What if an employee doesn’t have room in their freezer? What if they really wanted an organic or brined turkey instead?)
- Expensive. (Logistical costs, like refrigeration, add up!)
We’ve found a better way to carry on the Thanksgiving turkey gift tradition: Turkey Gift Certificates! They’re practical, easy and even more meaningful than an actual frozen turkey because they give recipients the power of choice!
