Employees are the proverbial backbone of any company. They are why the day-to-day operations continue to function seamlessly. Your staff is at the forefront of your business, and how they feel directly reflects in their performance. Show them how much you value their hard work and dedication with a thoughtful gift.
What better way to show your appreciation for valued employees than with food? Food is the love language for many people, and it speaks volumes. Give a delicious present in the form of a ham gift card. Your staff will enjoy this tasty gift that they can redeem at almost any grocery store in the U.S. A delectable ham that your employees get to select themselves will be right at home around any holiday feast or family meal. When they sit down to appreciate the gift you have given them, they will surely be grateful.
Look for creative ways to support those around you. Local businesses have been hit hard as of late. Whether they are dealing with closures, a reduction in sales revenue, or competition from larger corporations, they need customers to recognize what they have to offer. Small businesses and local entities tend to produce products with care and love that shows in the uniqueness of their wares. They hire people in your community and often source their ingredients locally, as well. Local businesses can offer a personal touch that your employees will appreciate.
If the pandemic has taught the workers of this world anything at all, it is that work flexibility is a necessity in daily life. It is likely that your employees have felt their life balance upended by the competing tasks of work and home. When their children’s school hours are limited or non-existent, what can be done to help your hard workers? Offering flexible work hours as a bonus for proven work shows your people that you understand their situation. In turn, employees tend to work harder for you. This mutual respect is reflected in your company’s external optics and bottom line. Honoring a flexible work option can lead to greater work productivity. It is a win for everyone.
Mental Health Services
A calm and centered employee is an effective one. It has become more commonplace for business leaders to offer those in their employ the opportunity to seek out mental healthcare as a company perk. Show the people you value just how much you do by giving them access to services such as mental health telehealth, meditation, and mindfulness app memberships. Become a champion in corporate wellness for a more productive workforce, but more importantly – to help the people you surround yourself with to be healthier and happier.
Here is an example of a beneficial guided meditation that your employees can utilize.
Your employees make your world run smoothly. Show them what their diligent labors mean to you on the holidays and throughout the year. Gift them with delicious items they will enjoy and appreciate. Show them that they have done their jobs well, and they will be happier for it.
