India is a country of festivals and occasions. The credit to our strong culture and bonhomie goes to the social celebration of occasions. Some prominent festivals of our country are Pongal, Holi, Good Friday, Gudi Padwa, Eid, Raksha Bandhan, Janmashtami, Ganesh Chaturthi, Onam, Dussehra, Diwali and Christmas while some prominent occasions are Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, New Year Day, Friendship Day, Valentine’s Day and Thanksgiving Day.
In the corporate, we celebrate many of these festivals with our colleagues. Many human resource leaders and business managers present gifts to their employees on such occasions. They often survey the options they have and wonder what gifts might suit their employees. Gifting of experiences such as adventure, fine dining, tours and getaways, hobbies, activities, health and wellness can not only suit the specific festival or occasion, but also offer variety in gifting and experiential learning for the employees.
For example, diya making classes suit the occasion of Diwali while canvas painting is a relevant experience for the festival of Holi. Likewise, Friendship Day can be celebrated with friends or team by experiencing a trekking tour to the Himalayas while you could treat your special ones on a fine dining experience on Thanksgiving Day. With every occasion comes an opportunity for organizations to strengthen their culture and steer it in the right direction.
Customization of corporate gifting to both the occasion as well as the preference of the employees can result in added motivation and engagement for them. Xoxoday’s experiences have been crafted precisely for this purpose. Experiential gifting ensures that the fun and the frolic of the festival multiplies while ensuring the distinct flavour of the occasion is not diluted. It gives a choice to the human resource manager to brand the organization to the employees the way they deem fit. With Xoxoday, you can customize the experiences in the form of gift boxes and add a personal touch of your organization to it.
