HOW EMPLOYERS CAN REALLY SAY “THANK YOU” TO THEIR STAFF

It’s Christmas again, and employers are faced with the chance to either build their employees’ morale or inadvertently drop it. After nearly a year of hard work, employees want to feel appreciated by their bosses, through some form of an incentive. So what are the best forms an incentive can take? The reaction of any employee to a holiday incentive is highly subjective, but there are some reputable choices that usually do the trick. Financial incentives: The usual goal of working is to get paid, be that monthly or fortnightly. Many employees desire a raise and a bonus. So it makes sense that, at Christmas
time, employers choose bonuses as a way to reward their employees for a year of loyalty. Consumables: In Guyana, the Christmas tradition of mass cooking is very much alive. But the ingredients for all that pepper-pot, black cake and ginger beer come at a cost. So what if an employer bestowed hampers, containing these very ingredients, upon their staff? It will indicate thoughtfulness and add the elusive personal touch that money is unlikely to have. Gift cards: Monetized Gift cards for boutiques, restaurants, the upscale supermarkets or even the classy
gadget stores have enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity and, they have very practical uses for employee incentives as well.
Tickets: It could be tickets to the upcoming cricket matches, or to the latest show in town or even tickets to see the latest blockbuster hit at the cinemas. Whatever it may be, tickets have proven to be an excellent “employer to employee” gesture.
Vacation: It is the ultimate dream of most workers to be sent on an all-expense paid trip as part of their holiday package. How about making the New Year for them, a time they will always remember.
