Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in other countries such as the United States, Canada, and some islands in the Caribbean. Although we don’t normally celebrate such occasion, some multinational companies observe this if their clients or other offices are in countries that celebrate Thanksgiving.
The Philippines is home to multinational and BPO companies so businesses have come up with activities appropriate for the occasion. However, companies must also remember to show their appreciation to their Sales Teams who give huge contributions to the success and growth of the company.
Employers should not forget their Sales Department is pivotal in acquiring clients for their company. They are the first ones to analyze and make adjustments to any crucial requirement which could make or break a deal with a potential client.
If you are still thinking of ways to show your gratitude to your Sales Teams, here are some simple ideas you can consider:
1. Send Thank You Notes
A short but sincere Thank You note will surely make their day more special. Not only were you able to show them your gratitude for all their hard work, you could also motivate them to perform better in the future.
2. Hold events highlighting your appreciation for them
This one is a sure-fire hit! Organize parties involving their family members to show you appreciate them for sacrificing their precious time for the company. A company outing is a good idea to celebrate Thanksgiving. It can also be a way to relieve stress from your Sales people and their families.
3. Prepare a feast
If going out of town is not a workable option, businesses can prepare food for their Sales Teams to show their appreciation. This may be a simple gesture but who would say no to food? They will surely be grateful for this simple act and their full stomachs will let them focus on their tasks more.
4. Give them gift certificates
Instead of Thank You notes, you can give your sales personnel gift certificates they can use to shop, dine, or even book their travels. Gift certificates in the Philippines are the most preferred rewards companies can give to their employees and clients.
Showing appreciation towards employees during Thanksgiving Day may be simple but its effects go a long way. Your team may even go the extra mile to bring further growth to your business.
Out of all the ideas above, giving out gift certificates during Thanksgiving seems to be the most hassle-free way of showing your gratitude for the people who helped your business grow. Imagine the look in their faces when you hand them gift certificates they can use for various purposes.
A broad selection of Sodexo gift certificates, such as the Sodexo Premium Pass, are available online. These gift certificates can be used in over 10,000 Partner Merchants across the Philippines.
