And I get a free gift note, so why not?
I also choose the gift bag option if the recipient is a female or if the gift is over $100.
Are you honoring and showing gratitude to your employees by sending them little gifts?
Believe me, when I say this, it’s not the $12, but the thought that counts.
And it’s a thought that they will remember.
I don’t know if you send your team small gifts or not, but it’s an action that shows that you care about them.
From doing so, you might just find a boost in their productivity and morale.
When was the last time someone sent you a physical gift in the mail (Not including holidays or birthdays)?
When was the last time you have done this?
Regardless, check out our Thank You Machine training to learn how to be a pro gift giver– to delight your team members, improve their productivity, and grow your business.
