Updated November 2019
The holiday season is upon us. Here at LifeSecure, we’re looking forward to dropping temperatures, white blankets of snow, work holiday parties, family gatherings, and, of course, the exchange of carefully chosen gifts.
With gift-giving season comes a tough decision for employers and business leaders — should you get your employees and/or clients something to show your appreciation? According to a 2018 Corporate Gift Giving Study by ASI 42% of employers plan to give gifts to workers, up from 2017. Additionally, employers plan to spend more on corporate gifts than in past year with the average gift value of $65. No matter the value of the gift, employees agree that useful gifts, rather than symbolic ones are most appreciated.
We recommend gifting your employees with the items that aid emergency preparedness at home and in their personal lives. Here are a few products that make especially good holiday gifts to show your employees or clients how much you care about their safety and well-being:
