Remedy Low Morale with Corporate Gift Baskets

Hi, this is Nick here. When I was a sophomore in college, I worked as a janitor in a truck repair shop/parts sales warehouse. I didn’t mind the work, paying for books, gas, rent, food, and school supplies wasn’t easy when you could only work 20 hours a week when school was in.When classes let out for winter break, that only meant one thing for me – my availability to work was wide open.  So I worked almost every day I could, shoveling snow, constantly mopping wet floors, and salting the sidewalks.  It wasn’t too pleasant.

I had already been made aware I’d be working Christmas Eve, but it didn’t bother me too much because I would still have time to make the two hour drive to my parent’s house just in time for dinner.  But, like Bob Cratchit in a Christmas Carol, I would find that my general manager had other plans for me.  I was told three days before Christmas Eve they needed me to stay later to clean and lock-up.  Now as much as I wanted to quit right then and there, I needed the extra cash I made that week to pay rent and bills for December.  So I agreed, then called my parents to tell them I wouldn’t be making dinner.

After three days of fuming over the fact I needed to work late, I walked into work on Christmas Eve.  Before I could even punch the clock, I was asked into the general manager’s office.  He thanked me for agreeing to stay late that night.  In gratitude, he gave me a small gift basket with candy, snacks, and a card in which said my hard-work was much appreciated.  It perked me up to say the least.

That single act revitalized my enthusiasm for my job.  I actually stayed at that job until I graduated.  Today, I’m in the almost same shoes as my old general manager.  I manage a team of software technicians who I’ve grown quite close to.  To show my appreciation for their hard work, I give them a gift basket for Holidays, to thank them for a staying late to finish-up a project of importance, or just to boost their spirits.  It’s a good way to keep your employees happy and we all know that happy workers are hard workers.
