You know that your business wouldn’t function as well without the dedicated team you have on board, so this Administrative Professionals Day, you’ll want to show them you appreciate them with a thoughtful gift, right?
But a thoughtful gift for one person may not suit another. You can’t buy candy or flowers because you don’t know if you have a staff member who is allergic to flowers, vegan, lactose intolerant, or dieting. Alcohol won’t work – many people are opting not to drink alcohol these days and others may not drink for religious reasons. A cash bonus isn’t very imaginative and will appear like a last-minute gesture. So, what’s a really thoughtful gift that everyone will appreciate?
Well, it’s hard to go wrong with a spa gift certificate. Unsure? Here are a few reasons why they are a great idea.
If you give all of your staff members a gift certificate for a spa with a range of different treatment options, they get to choose their own gift. Some people might love getting facials, others might prefer to pamper their feet. And hey - even guys like having their feet treated! Some may have a health issue they want to address, so a reflexology session or even acupuncture or other holistic therapies could be really useful for them.
That point leads us to the health option. When you give them all spa gift certificates for Administrative Professionals Day, you are giving them a gift that keeps on giving. Nobody wants stressed-out, uptight staff members who call in sick all too often. Introducing them to the benefits of a spa day could be one of the best things you can do for their well-being, and they will thank you for it with greater productivity, attendance, and a cheerful outlook.
Did we mention staff loyalty? A thoughtful gift like a spa gift certificate shows that you value your workforce and care about their health. The people receiving these certificates will appreciate the thought that went into them, and when they are having their treatments, they will appreciate you even more!
Don’t forget to treat yourself! You should definitely also buy yourself a spa treatment at the same time, just because you are a lovely boss and you clearly deserve some TLC too…
