If you want to hold on to your top talent, you need to show how much you appreciate their efforts & loyalty.

According to Gallup, it costs twice the amount of an employee’s salary to replace them, which is why employee retention is so crucial. 

There’s no better way to show your appreciation to your newer employees (or more seasoned ones) than through heartfelt corporate gifts that celebrate anniversaries and other milestones.

Research shows that employees who feel valued at work perform better and are more productive, so you have plenty of incentives to start a corporate gifting program for your staff.

Yet, slapping your logo on generic group gifts (think coffee mugs, pens, etc.) isn’t enough. 

For work anniversary gifts to have the desired impact, each gift must be high-quality and personalized for each individual.

To help spark your gift-giving spirit, we’ve put together 10 corporate anniversary gift ideas that are sure to blow away your loyal employees. And don’t forget about those remote employees.

3 Reasons to Celebrate Work Anniversaries, the Perfect Way

You may wonder if it’s worth your company’s while to start an employee corporate gifting program.

It turns out there are plenty of benefits to celebrating employee anniversaries, so let’s take a look at the top 3.

1. Elevate employee morale

It’s tough for employees to engage with their work 100% of the time if they aren’t getting any recognition for it.

By providing corporate gifts that acknowledge and reward their performance, they’ll have a renewed appreciation for what they do each day, which will significantly boost their morale.

Rewarding your employees for their performance and time at your company will infuse their work with deeper meaning.

2. A stronger company culture

Another key aspect of a great place to work is a prevalent sense of community and culture.

Giving corporate anniversary gifts will establish a tradition at your company, which is excellent for enriching your culture.

Regular gift-giving provides the consistency, reassurance, and community that come with a fully-realized company culture.

3. Better employee engagement & performance

As stated previously, there have been plenty of studies that connect employee recognition with increased performance and overall job engagement.

This is an enormous benefit for companies, as the more engaged/productive your employees are, the more profitable you’ll become.

Besides doing great things for your employee’s well-being and morale, corporate anniversary gifts will also positively affect your bottom line.

3 Tips to Selecting the Most Thoughtful & Meaningful Gift

Your gifts won’t mean much if you don a blindfold and randomly select gifts on Amazon – which means you’ll miss out on all the benefits listed above.

Instead, you’ll need to put a fair amount of thought into the gifts you select to ensure they have meaning for each recipient.

Here are 3 tips to follow when corporate anniversary gift shopping to ensure you hit a home run every time. 

1. Monitor Employee Milestones

You won’t be able to give outstanding anniversary gifts if you aren’t paying attention to your employee’s milestones.

The last thing you want is for a veteran employee to see their 10-year work anniversary come and go without so much as a peep from you or the rest of the team.

Our recommendation?

Keep a centralized calendar (that everyone can access) containing the start dates of all your employees to ensure you never miss a milestone anniversary.

2. Personalized Gifts

Even if the recipient is a music-lover, a pair of noise-canceling headphones won’t hit as hard if everyone in the office gets the same thing.

The gift will have a far stronger impact if you only get headphones for them based on their love of music and get your other teammates gifts related to their hobbies and interests.

That will show that you know your employees on a personal level, which will make them feel important, appreciated, and special.

3. Keep Things Even-Steven

If you get one employee a $20 gift and another a $500 gift, it gives the impression that you’re playing favorites – or that you don’t value the first employee’s contributions as much.

To avoid this awkward situation, stay consistent with the amount you spend on employee gifts.

While there’s nothing wrong with shelling out $500 on a corporate gift, you’ll need to give everyone else gifts of equal value – so make sure you have the budget for it first.

1. Premium Shoelaces & Shoe Accessories: a Great Gift Idea

A luxury pair of shoelaces complete with lace locks are the perfect corporate anniversary gift for the footwear enthusiast at your company.

Moreover, everyone wears shoes, so premium shoelaces & shoe accessories will provide real value to any recipient.

A bundle of top-tier shoelaces from LoopKing will give your employees plenty of fun options and colors to try out with their sneakers, boots, and dress shoes.

Shoelace charms and lace locks add extra visual flair and functionality, as lace locks will prevent your shoelaces from coming undone – even while hiking, running, and dancing.
