When it’s Christmas time we all have that thought what should we give as a gift for Christmas. Today, professional relationships are as important as personal relationships. Thus, to maintain a good gel in professional relationships a lot of professionals tend to give gifts during the holidays. The problem is who you want to give and what do you want to give.
There are two types of professional relationships. You could say one of the professional relationships you will deal with is the one on one direct relationship. In example, you can have a customer that you alone directly deal with for the company and you have a very good understanding. For these types of relationships sometimes you need to give something special. There are many online gift hamper business that are built just for things like this.
As a company you can give your top managers or director’s gourmet gift hampers. Small things like this makes people feel that even people think about professionals out of the work place as well.
Next is you general relationships. The relationships you would have for example, employer to employees, co – workers in the same office or department, etc. These relationships are not with the just one or two but a lot of people depending on how many work in one department or office. Some companies give small gifts to their employees for the holidays. It is more like a token of appreciation for a year of hard work or just one way to say Merry Christmas to everyone. A wine bottle, holiday cookies, holiday cake, desk calendar for next year, gift vouchers, etc. It can be anything.
On a personal level, if you have employees that performed well during the year. To appreciate their performance a special thoughtful gift can be given. It need not be an employer to employee gift but as co workers you may exchange gifts. A best thing to buy is to have a secret Santa game in your office. It gives both fun and the joy of Christmas. For those who are not aware of what secret Santa is, it is when each co worker is given a random name of a co worker and he or she has to buy something thoughtful for the other. This will go around the office and everyone will be receiving something special and at the same time be gifting someone as well.
Let Christmas not just be about sharing gifts but a moment to remember that everyone will be there for each other during both joy and sadness as a family.
