The infographic below shows a lot about employee expectations when it comes to holiday gifts. For those employers who are doing some last minute planning for employee holiday gifts this year, keep in mind that prepaid cards and gift cards are thepreferred gift. These gifts are easy for employers to purchase, and give flexibility to cater to different audiences. Giving prepaid cards or gift cards allows employers the opportunity to either tailored gifts to certain employees, by giving an
AutoZone gift card to the car enthusiast, or a
Boston Market gift card to an employee with a large family. These types of flexible gifts can also be offered to employees with the opportunity to select the brand of their choosing for their end of year gift. Giving end of year gifts are not expected from the majority of employees, and so by giving even small denomination gift cards this holiday season, employees will view the gesture as a thoughtful way for employers to show extra appreciation at this hectic time of year.
