Between 22 and 35 percent of U.S. employees have experienced symptoms of depression as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic according to research by the Society of Human Resource Management. That is a lot of folks that need help.
Thanking your employees should always be a common practice, but it becomes even more important during trying times. People are worried about their jobs, their families, and are feeling more isolated. Employees who feel connected and appreciated are less likely to get stressed out.
Your team is your most important asset (followed closely by your customers) and a nice compliment to honest and sincere gratitude is Tangible Gift Giving. Gift-giving is a great morale booster, both for the one receiving and the one giving.
There comes a time to go beyond “thank you” and to show your appreciation with a tangible gift. Something that can be worn or used day in and day out will serve as a long-lasting reminder of your gratitude. Gift Giving has a way of connecting the entire team that is different than an individual conversation.
Tangible Gift Giving doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive, or time-consuming. For creative and practical ideas on how to thank your employees, give Echo Marketing a call.
