Whether it’s been from your boss, your friend or a family member, we’ve all experienced those gifts that end up at the back of a cupboard. So what do you do when you want to reward someone with a great surprise, but you aren’t sure what to get them? Preference is an eGift that allows the receiver to choose which retailer they want to spend it with. The only question left is when will you use it?
Rewarding Hard Work
Rewarding an employee’s hard work shows them that their efforts are recognised and appreciated, if their labours go unnoticed what’s the incentive? In fact, a massive “69% of employees would work harder if they felt their efforts were better appreciated”. When it comes to rewards, it’s as much about being recognised as it is the actual reward, so you don’t need to spend a fortune every time.
Birthday in the Office
Everyone likes to feel special on their birthday, show your employees that you care about them on a personal level and give them a small token to help celebrate the day. Instead of trying to guess what they’re into, or what their favourite wine is, make things simple and give them an eGift for the brand of their choice.
If you want your competition to be a success, you’ll need a prize that appeals to as many people as possible. The best way to do this is to avoid choosing a specialised, niche prize whilst also avoiding something too generic and bland which won’t excite anyone.
It doesn’t need to be a massive sum of money or huge gift to put a smile on someone’s face. Giving someone money often results in them just spending the bonus on their weekly shopping or gas bills, and if you give your team chocolates it just merges into to all the other festive treats. With Preference they get the monetary value, but get to spend it on something for themselves.
Sometimes things don’t go the way things should with a customer, and sadly these things just happen from time to time. But it’s not all lost, customers really value and understand when companies own up to their mistakes and make up for them. If you thought it was hard trying to decide what an employee might like, just imagine how hard it is to decide what a customer who you’ve never met, might like. Instead go with something that is bound to please everyone, go with Preference.
