Everyone Enjoys Corporate Holiday Cards

Let’s say that corporate Holiday cards are a mandatory thing, required by the policies of your company. Now, really think about it. Would it be as thoughtful and generous to receive if you as an employee were required to send them out to all of your fellow co-workers? What if, when required to send out these mandatory cards, you had to pay for them with your own cash, and were not given any type of re-imbursement. Or worse! The payment for the cards came directly out of your check for that previous week. Makes you think twice about the next time you decide to want to send out Christmas cards right?

Luckily, that isn’t the case with most companies. And that’s what makes receiving business Christmas cards so great. It isn’t something forced upon you. When you receive your card, you know it comes from the heart, and that your boss, or a company you work with, or a business associate, is truly wishing you the best for the holiday season. And it is definitely something people remember.

So, if you want to stand out in the crowd this holiday season, make sure you remember corporate holiday cards for everyone!

A company I do freelance work for always sends a card and a gift basket around New Years each year. I work with many different companies, but this is the only one that takes an extra effort to say thank you. It is because of their kindness that I am always willing to go above and beyond for the projects I do with them. A small gesture can really help your company.

I think some people do feel obligated to send a card back to the person who sent them one. I almost always get a card a few days later from the people i send cards to. That’s not my intention. I don;t want anyone to feel obligated to send me a card just because I sent them one. I almost feel like it’s not heartfelt – it’s more of an oblugation.

Being forced to send cards takes away from what should be a kind and heartfelt gesture. I send cards to my friends and family because I want to, not because I feel I have to – and it should be the same for businesses. Though it is not a requirement for a business to send out cards, it definitely leaves a lasting impression on their clients.

I hope there is no company that forced the employees to do so, let alone taking the cost out of their paycheck. What if there are employees who don’t celebrate Christmas? Of course wishing someone a Mery Christmas doesn’t mean you are partaking the belief, but if someone wants to wish others a Merry Christmas, it should be up to themselves to decide.
