Read on for gThankYou!‘s tips to streamline the gift-giving process. Planning your employee holiday gifts has never been simpler!

Plan Ahead to Simplify Your Life

If you or your team has ever procrastinated gift-giving logistics,  you know how stressful it can be: your options shrink, it’s harder to delegate tasks, and you’re often faced with making decisions without proper research or preparation.
Planning ahead simplifies your life in a big way and cuts back on stress! You’ll appreciate the time to set up your program and find the unique plan of action that works for your company (especially if you’re coordinating employee holiday gifts for a large or distributed workforce!).

Your First Steps

Begin your planning by asking these six key questions to assess your company goals for employee holiday gifts:
1. Who will receive your employee holiday gifts? A specific team, an office or other single location (plant, store, outlet, clinic, etc.), distributed or work-from-home employees, or the whole company?
2. How will your company brand and culture influence the tone of your gift message?
3. What do you want to accomplish with your gifts — reward for a specific behavior or project, or share appreciation for each employee’s involvement in your company’s overall business success this year? Whatever your goal, be sure you’re connecting your appreciation to a specific outcome — and communicating that.
5. What is your budget? (Get creative!)
6. How will the size of your company affect gift-giving approach? If you’re at a small- or medium-sized company, encourage management to hand out gifts in person. If you’re at a larger company, the same could be feasible with regional or local managers. Remember: employee holiday gifts are best shared with a handshake and a big smile!
