A little appreciation makes a world of difference — especially at the workplace. To feel valued at work, employees need to know that their hard work is being acknowledged. That’s precisely why employee gifting and rewards and recognition are for.
However, choosing the ideal gift for employees with varied preferences can be a challenging task. Imagine putting in efforts on a gifting exercise only to realise employees don’t find useful. If you want to avoid such situations, here are things you need to know that actually matter in employee gifting today:

Be inclusive and fair
No matter where your employees are working from, everyone deserves to be included in your gifting exercise. Think again, have you been inclusive and fair with your gifting module?
