Unique gift ideas targeted towards businesses looking to show their employees they care this holiday season amid country wide labour shortages.
TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2021 /CNW/ - EMERGE Commerce Ltd. (TSXV: ECOM) ("EMERGE" or the "Company"), a diversified, rapidly growing acquirer and operator of direct-to-consumer ("D2C") e-commerce brands, today announced that truLOCAL, a Canadian leader in premium meat subscriptions that ships local frozen meat directly to the consumer, launched a new employee gourmet steak box as part of truLOCAL Corporate Gifts. Throughout Canada, businesses can partner with truLOCAL to send a gourmet steak box along with a personalized note from the employer shipped directly to their employee's door as a holiday token of appreciation. In addition to the gourmet steak box, employers can also choose the highly coveted Surf and Turf box featuring wild caught lobster.
"With increasing labour shortages and reduced holiday party options due to the spread of the delta variant, businesses are clamouring to find ways to show their employees they care this holiday season," states Marc Lafleur, founder and CEO of truLOCAL. "We are expanding our already successful gift box program to include businesses looking for unique ways to show employee appreciation while still remaining socially distanced. With our gourmet steak boxes being shipped directly to employees' homes, it is incredibly easy for companies to reward their staff from a distance. For companies struggling to balance safety and team culture, this is a phenomenal opportunity for employers looking for a unique yet hassle-free way to show their staff they care".
The $99 Gourmet Steak Box is the staple in truLOCAL's Corporate Gifting program, however inclusivity is always important which is why truLOCAL also offers a 100% plant-based box option for vegan and vegetarian employees, as well as a halal-certified box for employees with religious restrictions. Each box can be customized with a personalized card delivered directly to your employees' homes.
According to a study published by Harvard Business Review, 82% of employees feel their supervisors do not recognize them enough for their contributions. The research points out that lack of recognition takes a toll on moral, productivity and, ultimately, profitability. 40% of employees in this study admitted that they would put more energy into their work if they were recognized more often.
"truLOCAL continues to innovate in the meat subscription space, demonstrating the flexibility of their model, now also targeting corporate accounts, just in time for holiday gifting." said Ghassan Halazon, founder and CEO of EMERGE, "It is a great option for companies looking to reward employees with something unique while supporting the local economy."
truLOCAL corporate gift boxes are now available for purchase and delivery throughout Canada on the truLOCAL platform, https://promo.trulocal.ca/corporate-gifts
