员工所收到的最差以及最不可思议的礼物

Rachel King 2018年12月27日

人们在假日季也有着不小的压力,尤其是为礼单上的所有人选择合适的礼物会让人感到头疼不已。

人们在假日季也有着不小的压力,尤其是为礼单上的所有人选择合适的礼物会让人感到头疼不已。(我们可以为您支招。)

然而,为职场人士选择礼物是一件更有挑战性的事情,送礼的对象可能是关系不错的同事(对比偶尔见到的同事),或者有时候连你自己也不知道是否应该给同事或客户送礼。

因此,一些问题是在所难免的。毕竟,可堪称经典的一集《The Office》所讲述的神秘圣诞老人礼物交换便在一定程度上源于当今的现实。

如果你想了解不应该送哪些礼物,员工奖励计划Snappy汇集了雇员们称同事赠送的最差和最不可思议(更不用说最奢侈的)的礼物。其中一些礼物之所以会被送给接收者,其原因我们基本上还是可以理解的。(加油站红酒显然是去……路上最后时刻的选择,不是吗?)还有一些礼物真的是让人眼前一亮,或者实在是乏善可陈。

雇员称自己曾收到的最差的25种礼物

1. 普克珠贝壳项链

2. 土豆

3. 旧罐子装的变味糖果

4. 梅森罐盖子

5. 挂墙塑料有绳电话

6. 加油站红酒

7. 护足霜

8. 橡胶鸭子

9. 彩票

10. 蹲便器

11. 洗发水

12. “瓶封屁”

13. 跨接电缆

14. 发声坐垫

15. 香蕉

16. 笤帚

17. 解雇通知

18. 火鸡/火腿

19. 一把剪刀

20. 电影《魔力麦克》拷贝

21. 复合维生素

22. 《圣经》

23. 书签

24. 袜子

25. 压力球

雇主赠送的最不可思议的15种礼物

1. 3D打印机

2. 四人桑拿

3. “Kegerator”(啤酒酿造设备)

4. 设计师品牌背包(提到的品牌包括古驰和Tumi)

5. 水下滑板车

6. 双人加勒比海邮轮之旅

7. 乘坐直升机滑雪

8. 试驾法拉利

9. 可充气的热水浴缸

10. 地中海俱乐部鹬湾之旅

11. 神秘之旅

12. 泰国美食体验和度假

13. 阿拉斯加Gold Rush冒险邮轮之旅

14. 肯尼亚狩猎和野生动物之旅

15. “环法自行车赛”美食和红酒之旅

礼物往往都会给人留下持久的印象,而且这些礼物也必然如此。Snappy发现,近半数雇员(44%)觉得收到的礼物反映了他们在职场的价值。此外,远超半数(68%)的雇员表示,他们宁愿自己选择礼品,而不是由其雇主代劳。

还有,人们不一定非得(甚至是不合适)送礼物。有五分之四(81%)的雇员表示,主管的一张个性化表扬便条就会让他们更加卖力。然而,60%的雇员承认,他们在收到企业礼物之后从来没有给公司写过感谢函。

Snappy的发现基于SurveyMonkey提供的数据。调查于201811月开展,涵盖1019名受调者,他们代表了美国18岁及以上的男士和女士。(财富中文网)

The holidays are stressful, driven especially by that need to get the right gift for everyone on your list. (We can help with that.)

What can be even more challenging is getting a gift for someone in a professional setting, whether it be a co-worker with whom you’re close (versus someone you interact with once in awhile) or if it’s a situation where it’s questionable to even bestow a gift upon a colleague or client.

Thus, some problems are bound to arise. After all, the Secret Santa exchange depicted in this classic episode of The Office is somewhat rooted in reality.

In case you’re looking for what NOT to give, Snappy, an employee rewards program, has tallied the worst and most outrageous (not to mention, extravagant) gifts that employees say they have received from their co-workers. Some of these items almost seem understandable in how they ended up in the hands of the recipient. (Gas station wine was clearly a last minute option on the way over…right?) And then others, well, are truly inspired, or rather, uninspired presents.

25 Worst Corporate Gifts Employees Say They Have Actually Received

1. Puka shell necklace

2. Potato

3. Stale candy in a used mug

4. Mason jar lid

5. A plastic, landline wall phone

6. Gas station wine

7. Foot lotion

8. Rubber duck

9. Lottery tickets

10. Squatty Potty

11. Shampoo

12. “Fart in a glass”

13. Jumper cables

14. Whoopee cushion

15. Bananas

16. Broom

17. Pink slip

18. Turkey/Ham

19. Pair of scissors

20. A copy of Magic Mike

21. Multivitamins

22. Bible

23. Bookmark

24. Socks

25. Stress ball

Top 15 Outrageous Gifts From Employers

1. 3D Printer

2. Four-person Sauna

3. “Kegerator“

4. Designer backpacks (Gucci and Tumi were among the cited brands)

5. Underwater scooter

6. Caribbean cruise for two

7. Helicopter skiing

8. Race a Ferrari

9. Inflatable hot tub

10. Club Med Sandpiper Bay getaway

11. Mystery travel tour

12. Thailand culinary experience and vacation

13. Alaska Gold Rush adventure cruise tour

14. Kenya Safari and wildlife tours

15. A “Tour de France” gourmet food and Wine tour

Gifts always have the chance to make lasting impressions—and these certainly have. Snappy found that nearly half of employees (44%) feel that their value at their workplaces is reflected in the gifts received. Furthermore, well more than half (68%) of employees said they would rather choose their own gift than have their employer choose for them.

Then again, maybe a gift isn’t necessary (or even appropriate). Four out of five workers (81%) said that a personalized note of recognition from a supervisor actually strengthened their commitment to a company. However, 60% of employees admitted they never sent a thank you note for a corporate gift.

Snappy’s findings are based on data provided by SurveyMonkey. Conducted in November 2018, 1,019 respondents participated in this survey, representative of men and women ages 18 and older in the United States.
