Employee gifting plays a key role for many organizations’ efforts to create an engaging and positive company culture that promotes employee recognition, appreciation, gratitude, and loyalty.
As work continues to evolve, with an estimated 30% of workdays happening from home and 21.9% of Americans reporting they prefer work that is fully remote, an effective employee gifting strategy must include considerations for how and when to send gifts to employees living and working in various locations around the globe.
Explore expert tips and gift collection recommendations from Snappy for all your remote gifting moments. It's more important than ever to have a clear strategy, effective operations and tools for building a strong company culture that will reach and engage your entire workforce, remote employees included.
Cultivating a Culture of Inclusivity & Belonging
To build and cultivate true inclusion and sense of belonging at your company, it’s essential to include remote employees in your employee engagement, recognition, and gifting practices for everything from holidays and birthdays, to milestone moments and anniversaries, as well as annual events such as Employee Appreciation Day.
You may even find yourself sending gifts to remote employees more often than you do to team members who work in-office. Since remote employees can’t participate in-person at company events and gatherings such as happy hours and holiday parties, gifts are often the best way to help them feel included in these celebrations.
There are some special considerations to keep in mind for gifting team members who work remotely: remote employees require a home workspace, therefore practical gifts such as technology, office accessories, and office decor such as plants may be highly appreciated as they can be used to spruce up home offices.
You should also consider gift options that promote comfort and well-being since work-life balance can often be more challenging for remote employees.
Offering flexibility and empowering employees to pick their own gifts is a great way to make sure their gifts are meaningful, will be put to use, and provide value. When you gift with Snappy, you can send a complete collection of gift options for employees to choose from. Once a gift is selected, employees share the best mailing address for their gift delivery and Snappy handles all of the shipping, perfect for gifting remote employees who may be nomadic or on the move.
