If you have a recognition program, you know there are a thousand and one opportunities to recognize your employees. (If you don’t have one, we absolutely have to talk about it ! )

Whether it is to celebrate successes, encourage behaviors that we would like to see in the organization, celebrate an anniversary of years of service or even highlight retirements, there are plenty of opportunities to improve the employee experience and support engagement and retention.

However, as tastes and colors are not discussed, in addition to generational, cultural differences and individual preferences, no gift will be unanimous for all your employees, hence the usefulness of offering them a choice as a gift. .

And what are the most chosen gifts on our gift shop according to you? It’s simple, these are the exceptional packages and experiences, and we explain why.

3 reasons to offer a choice of experiences

Unforgettable pleasure

Giving an experience to live is the best gift. We sometimes forget material objects that we received for certain occasions, but we rarely forget an emotion that we were made to experience. In addition, living a memorable experience appeals to all our senses, and awakens sensations for lasting memories. These emotions will be associated in the mind of the employee with your company, which will contribute to spontaneously improving the employee experience of this latter.

Local purchase

To the delight of Quebec merchants, many consumers are now turning to buying local. Buying local not only makes it possible to contribute positively to the local economy, but above all to encourage local jobs and merchants. Your employees will be happy to know that their recognition gift favors local businesses of all sizes. And that’s good because our shop offers hundreds of packages and experiences to enjoy all over Quebec!

Environmental impact

Offering a package or an experience means making an eco-responsible gesture with a low environmental impact. No shipping box or transport truck is required to deliver the package to your recipient. All information is sent to him directly by email. This also means no shipping costs to pay! In addition, an intangible gift will always be less polluting than a material gift, which will end up, sooner or later, in the waste, while limiting overconsumption.
