Why Give Employees a Thanksgiving Turkey?

gThankYou! Turkey Gift CertificatesThanksgiving Turkey is the centerpiece of the holiday meal – it represents family, thankfulness and American tradition.

The Gift of a Thanksgiving Turkey is a truly Meaningful Gift.

Holiday Turkey packs emotional impact –
it’s the symbol of Thanksgiving

It’s About Family
Thanksgiving holds a special place in people’s hearts and lives.  It’s the time  we stop our everyday lives and surround ourselves with family and friends to give thanks.  Everyone has fond memories of this family centered holiday – the smells of  turkey cooking and a wonderful array of favorite family dishes, the joy of family and friends, the sense of belonging, the giving of thanks for those who came before us and the sharing of blessings.

It Embodies the American Thanksgiving Tradition of Giving Thanks
Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday dating to the origins of our nation and the celebration of shared community and bounty.   Our modern-day Thanksgiving dinner celebrates that original Thanksgiving — and the centerpiece is the turkey.

Why Companies Give Turkeys at Thanksgiving

It Shows You Care.
If you give employees holiday turkey, your business is an important part of their holidays. Thoughts of you are front-and-center as employees and their loved ones enjoy Thanksgiving. That’s priceless.

It has Universal Appeal.
Everyone appreciates the gift of a holiday turkey.  It’s a valuable contribution to a family’s Thanksgiving dinner.  These days, that’s an especially appreciated gift.

It’s Affordable.
A Thanksgiving Turkey has more emotional impact for the price than anything else. A Thanksgiving turkey costs just a few dollars, but its meaningfulness makes the return on investment incalculably high.

Why gThankYou! Turkey Gift Certificates are a Better Choice

As an employer, is it really practical for you to buy and distribute fresh or frozen turkeys to employees?  And how do you know what size turkey fits each family? How would you know what will fit each family’s holiday plans and available refrigerator space?

Consider this cautionary tale—a true story about Hughes Aircraft—related by author Brooks Mitchell, Phd., professor emeritus of management at the University of Wyoming and the founder of Snowfly Incentives. Writing at Human Resources IQ, he relates how Howard Hughes and his right-hand man had delighted employees with holiday turkeys in the company’s first two years.

By year three, the process was getting unwieldy and expensive.

By the fourth year, Mitchell writes:
“[World War II] was on and Hughes Aircraft had grown to several thousand people. Getting turkeys to everyone was a logistical nightmare. Things got even worse when the union got involved and accused management of giving bigger turkeys to some favored people and arrogantly ignoring the fact that some employees would rather have a ham. Howard and Scott were dumbfounded! How could such a well-intended holiday gesture become so twisted and acrimonious?”

Do you want to share the gift of a Holiday Turkey, but don’t want the logistical hassles of distributing turkeys to your workforce?
