If by any chance you forgot, now is the time to remember and prepare for the pinnacle of the festive season – the infamous office party. If you’re a manager or a HR pro, now is the time to prime employees for the big evening and whatever your role, now is the best time to look forward to the event – a time where you can mend old bridges, drink booze, catch some office gossip and turn work partners into great friends!
The Great British Pub Card or GBPC for short is an electronic voucher that can be used in member pubs across the UK, making wining and dining much easier (and we don’t need much coaxing to get to a pub!) It’s so easy and perfect for the festive season and we think that there are some huge benefits to this snazzy card. Here, we take a look at some of the business benefits – so grab a copy and don’t forget to show your boss!
If it’s been a while since you bought a gift card – then you might not know how hugely popular they are, especially in the corporate world. Whilst some brands do resonate with your younger relatives and are of course a life saver come Christmas time as you panic about gifts for your 13-year-old niece – they are also incredibly powerful at work.
When the manager of a company has a good rapport with his or her employees, the company benefits in the long run, that much seems obvious. But so many businesses fail to ‘grease the wheels’ of internal friendship in the simplest ways – with dinner out or a few drinks as a unit! When purse strings feel tight and time feels like it’s slipping away, it can be hard to ensure that team members feel that their efforts are being recognised.
So, the Christmas holidays seem ever such a long way away and the summer holidays are just over. Not only are the kids back to school (bringing more traffic and the nerves of every parent packing them off with it) but your employees are also feeling the effects of the 'back to school feeling!'
As the weather starts to go a little greyer, they need a boost to work with a renewed vigor. So, how can you help?
The popularity of gift cards has shot up in the recent times for many reasons. We, of course, offer our own card for dining, pub food and drinks, so we wanted to take a look at the five reasons why gift cards are advantageous for your business.
