Gift inspi­ra­tion

A little extra in your pay cheque or a perfect gift? What would you choose?

Sound familiar?

You’re standing with your mouth watering in front of the buffet at your favourite restaurant. Dishes stretch out as far as the eye can see. You take a plate and serve yourself some fish and some meat and, why not, some of the veggie option too. At the end of your meal you think: that was delicious but what did I just eat?

There is another way. 

You’re sitting at the table in that same restaurant. You go for the à la carte and get handed an extensive menu. You consider all the options, then carefully choose a dish. Before long, the waiter brings you your meal. So delicious, that really hit the spot!

Fast forward to your next pay cheque.

You examine it carefully and discover that you’ve been paid an extra €40. That’s right, the boss’s annual Christmas present! You almost missed it buried among all the other numbers, and it doesn’t really feel like a special reward – just an extension of your salary. A week later, you try to remember what you spent that money on. Paying the elec­tric­i­ty bill? Buying groceries? Filling up the car?

There’s another way here too, with the Kadonation Gift Card

A digital gift card that arrives in your inbox in an instant. Or a gift card in a luxury box presented to you by your company? Wow, that’s really special! Because you can spend the Kadonation Gift Card at more than 1,000 retailers, or more than 90 partners! YES! Finally you can buy that book you’ve been wanting to read or that sports outfit that’s been on your wish list for so long… The perfect gift, completely à la carte! Merry Christmas and thanks boss!

As an employer, have you ever considered the way in which you value | motivate | thank your employees? And how it makes them feel?

Not just Christmas, but countless other special occasions are the perfect time to give your employees a gift. Here are just a few: a birthday, wedding, out­stand­ing per­for­mance, newborn, work anniver­sary, retirement…
