A YEAR TO FORGET
2020 has definitely not lived up to expectations. It’s been a year to forget, for a number of reasons. Locked down for months, forced to work from home, compulsory masks, not seeing friends and family, social distancing, pubs closing early, holidays cancelled … and the list goes on!
Employers and employees have felt the strain this year, no doubt about that; but that’s no reason the dampen everyone’s Christmas spirit! Parties may be cancelled however there are still ways you can boost employee morale over the festive season and reward them for all their hard work in 2020.
BE OPEN TO A DIFFERENT KIND OF REWARD
OPEN is a gift card that can be spent in any registered local business. Think coffee shops, salons, yoga studios, delis, bars, restaurants, gift shops, art galleries….and more. The added benefit of rewarding staff with OPEN, is not only do your employees have all this choice of where to spend their gift, the money stays in local businesses and helps them survive. Win win.
Gifting your staff OPEN means you, the employer, are supporting local businesses. That’s a BIG pat on the back for you. What a great thing to do.
IT GETS BETTER
The popularity of staff reward gift cards continues to grow. The reason for this? HUGE tax and national insurance savings! You can gift up to £50 tax free, which means you save a whopping £48.10 per employee simply by gifting them an OPEN gift card, versus paying them the same amount in salary.
