Identifying Gifting Opportunity Moments
It’s a bit of a mouthful – but we’ve found that rewarding periodically can keep employee morale high throughout the year. Instead of allocating a lump some budget for year-end gifts or corporate parties, why not space it out during the course of the year? By identifying moments in an employee’s work cycle that are opportune for gifting, you could ensure that employees are incentivized and engaged through the year.
For instance, you could use the element of surprise and have individually wrapped and personalized gifts on desks for a job well done, call an impromptu town hall meeting and gift your team practical luxuries following a new business win or even conclude a year-end team lunch with a fun goodie bag. The possibilities are endless, and we can help you identify these unique gifting opportunity moments so that people feel appreciated when they least expect it across the employee’s or client’s lifecycle.
Using the element of surprise successfully
You get the best response from people when you gift at an unexpected time. A surprise always makes an impact and is not obligatory in nature. It tells the person that the action is for the relationship itself, with no strings attached.
Depending on what the receiver is going through and what’s needed, things with nominal value become immensely valuable when given with thoughtful intention. Since the interest of the recipient is at the center of it all but without the “What’s in it for me” query, your actions are perceived more genuinely.
Surprise and delight are key differentiators of corporate gifting that seem to be mostly untapped. We practice “Planned Randomness” where we lay out a plan of action with regards to the gifting, with the recipient having no idea of what’s coming when, so when it does, it creates surprise and delight!
Using insights to help you gift better
When you work with us, you don’t work with just another corporate gifting company. We take pride in our industry research and insights gained from years of experience in the market. We have developed guidelines to determine if your gift will be successful.
So, when gifting, you need to ask the following – Is it a gift or promotion? Is it best in class? Is it truly unique? Is it practical? Is it visible? Is it going to last? Is it universal?
Also, does your gift offer an element of personalization? Does it surprise and delight? Is it a practical luxury? Does it include the recipient’s inner circle – for example, a spouse? Does it acknowledge someone’s time? Is it generous and symbolizes your relationship?
These may seem like too many questions for a gift! But believe us when we say there’s a method to the madness. We help you leverage these and more insights to gift better
Using Empathy & Collaborative Approach
We believe that every company is different, and so will your requirements. We kick off our engagement with a short questionnaire to understand your perception of reward and recognition. We’d like to understand how you do things – so we can suggest the best way forward. We are happy to engage with HR managers or team leads to then develop a comprehensive plan that we will be happy to present to you.
