Why Vouchers are the Perfect Employee Reward this Christmas

christmas rewards made quick and easy!

We're big believers that it’s never too early to start planning for the festive period, especially when it comes to your employee rewards. Goodness knows your people deserve it this year...

The arrival of the festive season often prompts us to reflect on the challenges we've tackled and the goals we've smashed throughout the year. It’s very likely that the events of 2020 have tested your team’s resilience in just about every way possible. Considering that no one could have predicted the outcomes of COVID-19 on our personal and professional lives, there’s a lot to be grateful for if your business has managed to weather the storm. 

Saying thank you to your people at Christmas is not only a great way to keep spirits up during what can be a tough time for many, but also an opportunity to motivate them for the objectives that lay ahead in the new year. 

Gestures of gratitude towards your team are an essential part of your reward mix as they help with other key HR targets, such as performance and staff retention.

37.8% of employees confirm that a Christmas perk or reward makes them feel valued.

So, if you're keen to make your people feel extra appreciated this year, let's take a look at why vouchers may be the stocking filler you've been looking for:

keeping things personal

At a time in the world when we're all searching for connectivity and validation, receiving a generic gift may not help to emphasise your acknowledgement of the individual you're looking to reward. Yes, cash incentives can be delightful, but don't forget that they're taxable and easily chewed up by household bills and obligations. With a voucher, you ensure that your employee will actually experience the joy of a treat that’s just for them. 

Depending on who you partner up with to deliver your reward and recognition strategy, vouchers will give you access to a wide range of retailers, restaurants, holiday packages and experiences. So, instead of dishing out the same old same old, you can give your people a choice of something special and meaningful. In claiming the reward, they'll appreciate the fact that they've received this perk as a result of their hard work and dedication to your organisation.
