The company revolutionizing corporate gifting found that 95 percent of employees attribute recognition in the workplace to the creation and maintenance of a stronger, more positive and engaged company culture; however, one in three employees feel undervalued.

In fact, the average cost of losing a good hire is nearly $30,000. “Employers need to place as much value on their employees as they do paying customers,” said Hani Goldstein, Snappy Gifts CEO. “To attract and retain the finest talent, companies must incorporate creative and personal ways to reward employees for their hard work, and Employee Appreciation Day is the perfect time to kick start or reinvigorate your company culture.”

Snappy Gifts national Employee Happiness Survey also revealed:
- Nearly 45 percent of employees believe their value at a company is reflected by the gifts they receive; however more than one in three people have never received a gift from their supervisor.
- Of those who have received an employer gift, almost 40 percent of people have re-gifted or thrown it out.
- Almost 70 percent of respondents would rather provide input into the corporate gift they receive.
“Recognition is one of the most powerful motivators,” Goldstein continued. “Gift cards, paper weights, and other generic corporate gifts are old-fashioned, boring, and often quickly forgotten. Personalized, meaningful tokens of appreciation, on the other hand, can create a memory that builds the foundation for higher overall performance.”
