It’s Time to Craft the Perfect Christmas Message! 

We hope we’ve given you enough inspiration to write your own Christmas messages for your valued employees, or at least provided you with a template that you can tweak to fit your company culture! If you’re on this page, you clearly care about engagement and keeping your employees happy. 

So, how else can you work on your employee engagement? Well, you could always try the PerkUp app. This is a great initiative that issues preloaded Visa cards to employees. They can use these to buy perks like fitness classes, counseling sessions, and more! 

This way, employees are encouraged to engage more - they’re working towards perks they actually need or want. Check out our website to learn more about our programs and perk categories.

And remember, always show your employees the appreciation they deserve!
