Why is happiness at work so important? It makes you feel full of life, more sociable and more successful! Recog­ni­tion and appre­ci­a­tion play a key role in happiness at work. And it can come in many forms, from someone really listening to you or lending you a helping hand to receiving an unexpected compliment or employee gift.

As an employer, you of course take great care over choosing an employee gift. Because it’s important that your employee is really happy with it. But is that really the case?

A short employee survey will give you the insights you need. To help you get started, we’ve put together this short survey for you. Feel free to use it to find out what your employees think!

1/ How important are recog­ni­tion and appre­ci­a­tion’ in the workplace for your personal happiness at work?

  • Not very important
  • Recog­ni­tion and appre­ci­a­tion contribute to my happiness at work
  • Recog­ni­tion and appre­ci­a­tion are key factors for my happiness at work

2/ Do you think your employer is committed enough to recog­ni­tion and appre­ci­a­tion?

  • No
  • My employer does its best but there’s still room for improve­ment
  • My employer is fully committed to this

3/ Does an employee gift make you feel recognised and appre­ci­at­ed?

  • No, not really
  • A bit
  • Totally!

4/ How satisfied were you with the last employee gift you received?

  • Hmm, it wasn’t quite right
  • Nice enough
  • Wow!

5/ How important is it that you can choose your employee gift yourself?

  • You should be grateful for whatever gift you get
  • It’s nice to be able to choose, but it’s not essential
  • It’s very important to be able to choose

6/ Would you be happier with your employee gift if you got to choose it yourself?

  • Not really
  • For sure
  • I would be a lot happier!

7/ How important is it that your employee gift has your name and a personal message on it?

  • Not important
  • Important
  • A per­son­alised gift makes it all the more special

8/ Would you donate all or part of your employee gift to a good cause?

  • No way, it’s my gift
  • That sounds like a nice idea
  • That’s definitely something I’d do

9/ And finally: describe your perfect employee gift in 3 words.
