If you’re a regular reader of our journal (and if you’re not, you should be!) then you may have read our piece a few weeks ago on the value of gift-giving in business. Thanking your employees with a thoughtful and inspirational gift is a fantastic way of boosting morale and creating loyalty to your company. Corporate gifts are also frequently used as an incentive, or as a way of rewarding staff when they hit a target, as well as seeing people off into retirement or maternity leave in style.We’ve written before about why experiences are often far more satisfying than a physical gift. The anticipation of trying a new activity, whether solo, as a couple, or as part of a group, is very exciting, and the happy memories associated with an experience can last for a lifetime. But don’t just take our word for it – there’s plenty of scientific research that backs up this theory. In the words of Maya Angelou,“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”When considering experiences for corporate gifts, we have to think of why they would appeal to a your employees. To begin with, thanks to technology, many businesses today are multinational, working with people from many different countries and cultures. That means regularly finding the ideal gift for employees can be difficult if you’re not familiar with their backgrounds. Not to mention you need to ensure the gift arrives at the right place at the right time.Here’s where Tinggly can come in so handy – the big advantage of our collection of experiences is that it’s truly global. We offer a range of amazing experiences in more than 100 countries, and that number is only growing. You’re buying someone the experience, but they choose what to do, and where and when to do it, be it in their country of origin, or somewhere they’re visiting on holiday or business. So no matter where your employees are based, or their personal tastes and interests, you can be confident that they’ll find something they’ll enjoy trying, and you need to put in very little effort yourself (though you can of course make a few suggestions).Not only that, but Tinggly experience gifts are delivered in a stylish presentation box, which looks very professional and exciting, and will look great when placed on someone’s desk or passed to them at a birthday or retirement party. We naturally also do e-vouchers, for when you need a gift in a hurry!So what do people tend to choose? Our most popular experiences selected by people who’ve received a gift voucher from their company tend to be memorable activities like spa packages, fine dining experiences, outdoorsy-adventures such as bungee jumps or skydives, and unique hotel stays. From this we can establish that Tinggly experiences help your valued employees to treat themselves to little luxuries they might not otherwise consider, or be able to justify splurging on otherwise.Experiences as corporate gifts boost loyalty to your company. They make a meaningful impression on the people you value; build team morale and can also help people develop useful new skills such as teamwork or leadership, that they then bring into the workplace. Further still, when your company has a diverse workforce spread around the world, Tinggly is the one gift you need as we have fun experiences to be enjoyed all over the place. When you give your employees a Tinggly gift experience voucher, what you’re really giving them is the gift of choice. And that is about as close to Satisfaction Guaranteed as you can get.
