Christmas, the time of goodwill and giving. If you’re an employer, then this is the perfect time to round up the year with a big 'thank you' to all your hard working employees. Although giving gifts at work isn’t mandatory, many businesses do exchange gifts during the holidays to boost office moral during these colder seasons as well as ensuring their employees feel valued. That means every December when businesses honor the holiday gift-giving custom, people need to navigate the tricky gift-giving waters.
Here are some guidelines for giving gifts at work:
Set a price limit Set a reasonable budget and stick to it each year. If one year you gift employees something worth $50, they will expect the same generosity the next. Extravagant gifts can been deemed inappropriate and come across showing off.
You are always bound to have your favorites in the office but it's important to insure all employees feel equal. Whatever you give for a worker at a certain level should be done for everyone at that level.
Select your gift thoughtfully Ask yourself what message the gift conveys about your business. The right gift should show appreciation and respect as well as being on brand. Gift types Avoid giving gifts that are too personal, choose gifts relevant to your employee's job. Suitable gifts include business card holders, pens, Christmas themed stationary. Sporting gifts, such as volleyball nets, tennis rackets, golf balls are also acceptable, just don't leave anyone out. For example, if 40 percent of your staff play golf and the other 60 percent dislike the sport, think of another gift.
