Why is sending corporate holiday gifts to employees and clients important in 2021?

2020 was a hard year for all of us around the globe so we want to bounce back from that the right way by lifting our employee’s spirits and making them feel special for all their hard work during a very tough year. Last year was rough but now we BOUNCE BACK! Let them know we are all in this together and you appreciate their dedication and contributions to the company. 

Providing high-quality or personalized branded holiday gifts to employees is particularly important because it’s known to boost employee engagement, happiness levels, and even productivity. Think outside of the box and come up with items that will without a doubt improve their workday or items that they would be proud to show off!

How much should I spend on corporate holiday gifts?

That is a great question and I’m glad you asked! It is important to aim for high-quality gifts while not spending an excessive amount of money. You want your team to feel appreciated while keeping in mind that you don’t want to invite any type of unnecessary expectations. No matter which gifts you choose for your employees, aim to spend anywhere from $100 or less. If you have multiple employees working within your company make sure to spend the same amount of money on each individual during the holidays.

What are the best corporate holiday gifts for employees?

Gourmet Gift Baskets

Not sure what to gift your team members? Mix and match a variety of treats, drinks, or seasonal spices to create a practical and personal gift that will fit right into your budget.

Need help with a purchase requisition? 

Purchase requisitions are documents used when team members need to make a purchase on behalf of their organization. Put simply, it is an official order used to inform department managers or purchasing officers about a decision to make a purchase. 

Now, you may ask why are they so important in the procurement process? 

1. They initiate the purchasing process 

If there are any issues, the document will act as evidence when it comes to questioning things like communication 

2. They’re an effective control tool

With a formal purchase request, there are measures in place to reduce the risk of fraud, and a purchasing request must go through a variety of individuals to ensure its accuracy. It is also important for auditing purposes.

3. They protect the organization from fraud

Purchase requisitions make it extremely difficult for the staff to purchase goods and services for their own personal use by utilizing organizational capital. 

4. Purchase requisitions centralize the procurement process 

These documents offer central control over all business spending and make it easy to manage what goes out, when by whom, and to whom. 

Go check out Kissflow which offers a definitive guide to purchasing requisition in 2021.
