With Christmas around the corner, people are starting to feel the holiday cheer already. Business leaders always experience some tension between being generous with their teams while also being fiscally responsible while stewarding the company.
Companies across sectors face uphill battles trying to remain competitive and makeup all the ground lost during the pandemic. Here are a few ways that business leaders can be bounteous with employees while being responsible executives.
Details About This Christmas, Give These Gifts To Your Employees
1. Job Description Software
Managers and every employee on payroll will love technology that provides everything from a job description generator to a fair and transparent system for evaluating employee performance. Job description software uses AI and HR wisdom distilled over decades to put the best job descriptions and interview questions right at the fingertips of HR pros, managers and executives.
You’ll get better candidates responding to job postings and conducting the interviews more effectively because the software cuts through to the key skills, experiences, and behaviors an employee needs to thrive in a vacant role. Empowering your HR is smart, freeing up their time so they can focus on other fundamental tasks is even better.
Job description software keeps employees on track for their next promotion and gives companies the actionable intelligence they need to make plans from a place of knowledge. Whether it’s the next campaign or succession planning for the future, job description software is a win for employees and executives alike.
2. Lifestyle And Wellbeing Gifts
Everybody could use a little bit of R&R from time to time. When the days get shorter and darker and the cold begins to set in, who wouldn’t enjoy a little massage or some time at the spa?
It doesn’t matter what industry you work in. Your employees are sure to appreciate some gifts designed to help them feel better. They shouldn’t be too gimmicky or fad-dish. There’s a decent amount of pseudo-quackery in the wellness industry, but if you steer clear of it and focus on time-tested methods of feeling better used in spas everywhere, your team will respond.
3. Paid Time Off
One of the more contentious disputes during the pandemic was between health advocates warning that employees needed to be paid time off so they didn’t feel pressured to come to work on days they showed COVID-19 symptoms and employees who couldn’t spare the money. Executives have an obligation to the company and, sometimes, shareholders to be prudent fiscal managers.
Trusting your employees’ work ethic by giving them paid sick time is something they’ll appreciate deeply and reward you with greater loyalty. Besides, if someone is too sick to work, they risk spreading it at the workplace — they really shouldn’t be there.
Giving your teams paid time off has social benefits that transcend the bottom line. However, your company will enjoy having more motivated employees in a healthier work environment.
People enjoy receiving any gift at all! Even a thoughtful card that expresses warmth and appreciation is a beautiful thing, and it doesn’t have to cost a lot. However, if you gift your employees with any of the above things, you’ll both have a lot to feel good about this Christmas.
