John Ruhlin, public speaker and author of Giftology: The Art and Science of Using Gifts to Cut Through the Noise, Increase Referrals, and Strengthen Retention

With the holiday season on the minds of managers and employees, now is the time for celebration and gift-giving. This is a perfect opportunity for HR managers to take a closer look at their gifting policies. How can you use this chance to create company advocates? You do it by finding presents that can help boost employee engagement and productivity.

In this special 50th episode of HR Break Room, John Ruhlin joins hosts Caleb Masters and Chelsea Justice to discuss:

  • how to identify the right gift for your people
  • why giving it can boost employee morale and productivity
  • the importance of giving at the right time and personalizing each gift to the recipient’s needs
  • the effectiveness of gift-giving throughout the year

 

HR Break Room is also celebrating its 50th episode by giving gifts of our own and announcing the winners of our “5 Days, 5 Giveaways” contest.
