Gift Baskets Overseas Charity Update 2022: Help Ukraine and More

Every year close to the holiday season, I bury myself in the documents from our teams to compile the report on Gift Baskets Overseas charity initiatives for the outgoing year. It has always been a very satisfying experience. This year, however, the feeling is totally different. For me as a person of Ukrainian descent, 2022 is a year of extreme challenge and hurt. It is with a great pride that I can report that Gift Basket Overseas charity efforts are now focusing on helping Ukrainian volunteers and refugees.

Upgrading Your Employee Rewards Program With Corporate Gifting

Between the 1940s and 1960s, some employees retiring from the workforce would receive an engraved 18-karat gold watch as recognition for their years of service. Being an eagerly awaited reward, it sounded like a fair trade back then. Given the work expectations of today, many would argue that this is not a sufficient employee rewards program. Especially since today’s workforce landscape is much more competitive, constantly shifting, and not as willing to hand out gold-plated Rolexes to working individuals. 

If you’ve asked yourself, “How do I retain these tech-savvy, self-starting workers of the new world?” you’re already on the right track. Research shows that millennials will make up 75% of the workforce by 2030, so it’s best to get ahead while you still can. And to answer your question: upgrading your employee rewards program with corporate gifts is a surefire way to keep good people with you for longer. Join us as we dive into the long-term rewards for your business when you create a recognition culture through gift-giving.
