It’s fair to say that this year has been a tough one particular, no matter what industry you operate. Whether you’ve had to shut your doors temporarily, escape your staff, or you have continued working during the pandemic, there’s one thing for sure – your employees will need a pick me up nowadays.
You may not have the ability to organise the usual Christmas do that year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat your own employees to say thank you for their continued support. Here are 3 ways to make your workers smile from afar:
Send Them A Gift Hamper
A single great way to bring joy to your employees this festive time of year is to send them a present hamper packed full of goodies. The benefit of this is you can organise it online and get it sent straight to their door.
There are lots of great gifts you could include, such as Xmas chocolate, relaxing candles, a bottle of wine, festive chutneys plus anything else you think they’d appreciate. Don’t forget to include a card saying thanks for their hard work and wishing them the Merry Christmas!
Give Them A Bonus Or Discount vouchers
There’s one thing that everyone appreciates during the festive season – money. With presents to buy, costly food shops to complete and all the other expenses to cover, it is fair to say that this time of the year comes with a hefty price tag.
If your company is in the financial position to do so, providing employees a Christmas reward is a great way to treat all of them at the end of a difficult year. It is sure to boost morale plus make people feel appreciated. Another option is to send out vouchers for staff to invest online, or gift experiences that they can enjoy at a later date.
Organise A Digital Christmas Do
While you can’t get together for your annual Christmas do this season, you can still have a laugh together with your colleagues by organising the virtual party. Using Ms Teams, Zoom or any additional video platform, you can commemorate the festive season from your comfort and safety of your homes.
You could play fun games like Pictionary, charades or even web host your own 2020 Christmas Questions! Encourage people to stock up on nibbles and their most liked tipple to get in the festive spirit.
Regardless of how you choose to treat your workers this Christmas, it’s sure to be appreciated!
