Not everyone gives employee gifts for Christmas, but at InfoMart we always give our employees a branded gift. Why? For two reasons: we’re proud of the way our employees represent us, and it’s good for brand awareness.
We always ensure that the gifts are quality. We choose things that people are likely to wear or use. A lot of thought goes into these presents each year; giving a gift that’s likely to be unused or thrown away is a waste of money. Last year, we gave our employees black jackets branded with InfoMart’s logo. Many of them are wearing them to the office now that the weather has turned cold again.
InfoMart also created our own calendar for employees with our major holidays and special work days. The calendar includes a monthly coupon for our catering kitchen (Amy and Tammy’s Boxed Lunch Company) that provides employees lunch multiple times a week, ranging from standard sandwiches to specialty offerings like chicken pot pie and quesadillas.
Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing my tips for increasing employee engagement during the holiday season. Can’t wait? Join me over on InfoMart’s blog for a more extensive look at two of our biggest year-end events: our daily holiday raffle and our employee awards ceremony.
