To Gift or Not To Gift?

POSTED ON 
December 3, 2018

It’s that time of year, folks! The holiday season is upon us – and it’s coming up fast.

You might be struggling to come up with gift ideas if you’re a boss with a slew of employees or a small business owner. Or you might be debating whether or not to give presents in general. Don’t forget that a nice holiday gift, party, or branded gear doesn’t make up for the rest of the year. Employees want to be paid fairly and equally and enjoy going to work everyday. No present will make up for that.

If you want to give your employees a little something to show you care we’ve got some ideas for you.
