The tradition of Christmas or end of year gifting is well entrenched in corporate culture, but what about the rest of the year? Non cash employee rewards have become a cornerstone of employee recognition programs, and their utility stretches far beyond the festive season. Keeping employees engaged year-round is not just beneficial; it’s essential for maintaining a thriving workplace. Here’s how SWIRL gift cards can transform your approach to continuous employee motivation. 

The Importance of Year-Round Recognition

Employee engagement shouldn’t be a once-a-year event. Regular recognition is key to building a loyal, motivated workforce. Recognising the small wins as well as the big achievements keeps morale high and employees focused. It’s consistent acknowledgment that helps foster a culture of appreciation and respect. A Mastercard gift card from SWIRL, which can be enjoyed in countless ways, serves as an ongoing reminder to employees that their efforts are valued. 

Occasions for Employee Rewards

From work anniversaries and project completions to personal milestones like birthdays and weddings, there are ample opportunities to implement employee rewards in your company. Each occasion is a touchpoint for employers to show they care. Why not celebrate an employee’s leadership with a gift card that they can spend at their leisure on something that is personal and meaningful to them? Or perhaps mark the end of a successful quarter with gift cards to thank your team for their hard work. The possibilities are endless with the versatility that SWIRL gift cards offer as they’re accepted at over 45 million locations worldwide ! 

Here are some other examples of when you can use Employee Rewards to keep staff engaged outside of the traditional gifting season

  • Retirements 
  • Work Anniversaries or length of service awards 
  • Quarterly target completion rewards 
  • Company event spot prizes 
  • Career achievements 
  • Leadership awards 
  • Ongoing incentive programs
