A great employee gifting program can be a wonderful way to boost employee retention, recognize special occasions and stellar performers, and ensure happy, engaged employees. Whether you choose to recognize your employees on an annual or quarterly basis, or for special occasions like holidays, business milestones, and anniversaries, know that there are steps you can take to make sure that your employee appreciation gifts are seen as unique, thoughtful, and hand-picked for the recipient.

In our Business Gifting Satisfaction Survey Report, we surveyed over 1000 people about gifts they’ve received from their employers. Our findings cover everything you need to know about giving and sending great employee gifts, from what to spend on a gift, to why a personal note can make all the difference. 

If your company wants to give creative, thoughtful employee gift sets to welcome new hires, celebrate individual and company achievements, and recognize special occasions like holidays, birthdays, or Administrative Professionals’ Day, you’ll find essential tips and gift ideas in our Employee Gifting Survey Report and our employee appreciation gift collection.

As part of our inquiry into what makes a great corporate gift for employees, we surveyed 500 people across the U.S. about the nuances of gifting for clients, colleagues, and employees. In our first 2018 Business Gift Satisfaction Survey Report, we learned what clients and colleagues think of the business gifts they’ve received over the years (you can read those findings here). In our supplemental report, we’ll dig even deeper into the impact of business gifts that employees received from an employer. Our first installment covers why employee gifting is a worthwhile investment for companies, while our second report will share strategies for creating great employee gifts your reports will find meaningful and memorable.

5 Reasons Why Expert Employee Gifting Matters

  1. Corporate gifts for employees can make employees feel noticed and valued. 81% of employees who responded to our survey say they feel appreciated when they receive gifts from their employer, and 56% feel recognized for doing a good job. These gestures can positively influence an employee’s perspective of their employer, which can go a long way toward boosting morale and creating a thriving workplace. 
  2. The right employee gift sets can make employees feel more connected to the company and more likely to want to stay. Among the employees who reported receiving a “very memorable” gift--one clearly chosen thoughtfully, just for them--45% said that the experience made them feel more loyal to the company and more likely to want to work there longer. When gifting is carried out as a practice of gratitude and appreciation, the sincere effort shows--business gift recipients can always tell when a gift is given out of obligation or necessity!
  3. Gifts for junior staff can help increase job satisfaction and loyalty. A word to the wise gift giver: C-Level, Director, and Manager staff were likely to report finding their gifts “very satisfying” and “memorable” but junior staff were often less pleased with their gifts. Given the reports that a thoughtful gift can make employees feel more connected to their employer and the company at large, invested gifters would do well to consider gifts for junior staff and entry level talent. (This is another opportunity to practice one of our favorite tips: give a gift that aligns with shared values to make it even more meaningful to your recipient.)
  4. Employees recognize that company swag is not a gift. Though great corporate gifts for employees can showcase your brand and your company’s mission and values, branding the gift with logos or giving generic swag is a surefire way to disappoint some recipients. While you might want to give a logoed gift (think travel mugs and tote bags) for recruiting events, new employee welcome packages, corporate events and company meetings, take care not to brand any gift for a more personal occasion, like birthdays, important business milestones, and holidays. Logoed gifts are 60% less likely to be considered memorable than non-logoed gifts, and many recipients admit they’d sooner regift a branded item.
  5. Across the board, there’s room to improve! 52% of people we surveyed did not consider their last gift from an employer “very memorable.” The good news is, it’s not that difficult to give gifts that are more awe, less blah. We’ll explain how to create very memorable gifts in the follow-up to our 2018 Employee Gifting Survey Report, but if you feel stumped on what kinds of gifts to give your employees, know that you’re not alone.
