Employee Reward Ideas for 2018

The latest Employee Engagement Report has shown that as we end 2017, just a mere 25% of employees feel like their skills and talents are valued by their company. However, in 2016, the same study revealed a score of 41%, so it seems that 2017 isn’t ending on a high note for every employee!


If you’re reading this, it’s safe to say you have more than a passing interest in employee rewards. You know that a happy employee is a productive employee and that furthermore, you will be able to improve your employee retention if you show your appreciation towards them. It’s really true - invest in your employees, and they will naturally enhance their performance for you. We think Gift Cards are the very best way to reward employees, but with 1000’s of brands to choose from where do you begin? We’ve browsed the SVM Global portfolio to investigate the very best Gift Card reward ideas for employees in 2018. Here are our picks:


A Travel Incentive or Reward with TUI

Giving your employees the chance to escape their stressful work and indulge in a relaxing break with their family or co-workers goes a long way to increasing performance and happiness the whole year round. Whether you pick a Gift Card as an incentive or as a reward, you can be assured that a holiday is a highly memorable choice.


TUI offer a huge range of breaks that will appeal to many people in your business. The TUI Sensatori Resorts are all about luxury, while TUI Family Life Hotels cater to everyone and the new TUI Sensimar collection exclusively for adults. Their destinations range from Spain and Italy to far-flung St Lucia and Mexico - not to mention a large variety of city breaks. Gift Cards can be used in stores or online. Why not ask us about their digital cards?


Restaurant Card- A Meal Out on the Directors

Giving time and attention to your employee can show just how much you value their work. If an employee only has minimal interaction with a director and their only contact is a rushed meeting or when something’s gone wrong, its hard for them to receive the needed time and attention. A great resolution is to be more visible as a senior leader in your business by offering a restaurant Gift Card, the promise of a meal out together is a great way to enhance someone’s motivation. The restaurant card works as a prepaid system that can be used when purchasing non-alcoholic beverages and foods. Nationwide coverage includes; Belgo with 5 restaurants offering a huge selection of Belgian beers and a range of delicious mussel dishes, Bella Italia with over 90 Italian restaurants, Café Rouge with over 100 restaurants for a French escape, Las Iguanas for South American food & cocktails and La Tasca and La Vina offering authentic Spanish Tapas. If a night out with the director isn’t suitable, why not consider the card for employees with families? It’s a great way to encourage them to book that baby sitter and take some time for themselves.
