Have you thanked your staff and suppliers recently? Christmas often follows a busy time of year where people have put extra effort in, so it’s a great time to thank your staff and suppliers with a little something special.
This sounds expensive but it doesn’t need to cost a lot. A personal message, a dinner, or a Secret Santa are all simple gifts that will be highly appreciated by the recipients. Read on for our edit of the best thank-yous around this Christmas. And don’t forget, if you’re too busy to arrange this yourself then Hour Hands can buy, wrap and deliver your corporate gifts, as well as writing your cards.
Office Christmas party, yes or no?
We all know December is super-busy for everyone, but it’s still nice to do a Christmas work party, and Christmas in January just isn’t the same! If you prefer a more low-key option, a lunch offers ample opportunity to spend time together. This is a nice time to share some stories of your past year, and to show appreciation of work delivered.
Delight your staff and key suppliers
Can you highlight some great moments in the year to each of your staff? Moments they have really gone way beyond what they were employed to do? Take the time to acknowledge this with a small gift – it will always be appreciated.
Similarly, if you have some key suppliers then don’t forget about them. Again, it doesn’t need to break the bank, just a little thank you will make them feel appreciated.
Expensive and generic corporate gifts are a bit dated now, but we still think saying thank you to your loyal clients is an important thing to do. Can you find something personal or really useful for them? If you know your clients well, that will make it a lot easier.
Give the gift of time
At this busy time of year, time is often craved more than anything material. An Hour Hands gift voucher enables your team members to use any of our services for a specified amount of time.
