This year, the right gift might go even further than it ever has before. Start your 2021 holiday season planning now.
Don’t delay; the holiday season will be here before you know it, and continued factory shutdowns, shipping delays, and product shortages are expected to impact the holiday shopping season. When you order from Safeguard, your advisor will help you create a holiday gift plan, navigate supply chain challenges, and make sure your customers and employees feel appreciated thanks to thoughtful gifts.
How does a holiday gift impact employee morale?
Recognition is a powerful employee motivator, and when employees receive rewards at work, they feel valued. In a recent survey, nearly 45 percent of employees felt that their value at their company was directly reflected by the gifts they receive, which makes giving the right gift indispensable. With supplies expected to be limited, don’t miss out on getting the employee holiday gifts you want. Order early to make sure you get your top choices for your employees.
Order Now to Avoid Delays
Supply chain disruptions have been continuous since the onset of the pandemic, and hard-to-find items have included everything from food items to packing materials. Delivery performance has also lagged over the past year as increased online shopping has continued to cause shipping delays across logistic networks. With Q4 and the holiday shopping season just around the corner, some specific product categories may be more likely than others to experience supply chain shortfalls, including electronic and tech products, bags, drinkware, outdoor products, and even apparel items. Don’t let inventory shortfalls impact your business.
There are ways to manage the supply chain shortages and get the seasonal gifts you need with the help of your local Safeguard advisor. Your advisor will work on your behalf to secure inventory, manage deadlines, and provide shipping options. One of the ways to manage the supply chain shortages is to order your gifts early. When you order your gifts early, not only do you help to guarantee your order arrives on time, but it also assures you’ll have options so you can get the gifts that are on the top of your wish list, from apparel to delicious food gift ideas. Another way Safeguard can help businesses avoid inventory issues is with U.S. suppliers and products Made in the U.S.A. With demand increasing, it’s not too early to start your 2021 holiday season buying.
Employee Gifts Matter More Than Ever
Employees like to be recognized; they want to know that they as an individual matter to the organization and that the efforts they put in day after day are being appreciated. Employee gifts can make an even greater impact when a business has been going through a rough period, making sure employees feel recognized. A carefully planned holiday gifting strategy can provide a needed boost to company morale.
Employee gifts are a tangible way to both express gratitude for a job well done and make employees feel valued. Yet, even though almost 45 percent of employees say that they perceive their value is reflected in the gifts they receive, over one-third of employees have never received a gift from their supervisor. As job vacancies continue to outpace job seekers, it’s never been more paramount for companies to retain their talent, and Safeguard can help you delight employees with a well-executed holiday gift plan.
Ripple effects from the pandemic are still having a big impact on the ways businesses operate, including how they approach 2021 holiday season planning. At Safeguard, we understand that the combination of supply chain shortages, inflation, and a need to improve employee and customer retention means that organizations need to pay particular attention to this corporate holiday season.
