3. The best bonus: Bonuses and incentives

According to the same Sodexo survey, 9 out of 10 employees prefer to receive gift cards or vouchers, both physical and virtual, instead of a turkey voucher or a grocery basket.

“Clearly the collaborators want to decide how to use their bonus and not for the employer to choose for them; Through options such as Christmas Pass, e-Commerce Pass or e-Vale, they will be able to choose where, when and how to use their bonus, according to their needs. This is key because not only is this preference met, but the company saves up to 49% in operating expenses,” adds Ferrero.

4. Free time: the most valued

Although many companies continue to use the home office and hybrid work, the truth is that most people want to enjoy more time with their family at Christmas.
