Celebrate Long Service Awards With Virgin Incentives

Every year hundreds of workers across the country will hit long new service milestones, showing unwavering loyalty to their companies and jobs whether it’s been 5 years or 20 years. They deserve to be rewarded, and that’s where we come in. 

It’s more important than ever that HR and business leaders ensure their teams feel appreciated and valued in the workplace, especially in regard to individuals displaying loyalty to the company. The longer an employee has worked for a company, the more effort that individual has shown and therefore the bigger the returning reward should be. At the same time, shorter stints such as one year milestones should equally be celebrated, especially during the ongoing pandemic. Research has shown that long service award schemes are instrumental in reducing staff turnover by a whopping 20%.

In addition, memories say more than cash ever can and that’s why employees prefer physical experiences over monetary rewards. The simple act of acknowledging long service boosts team morale and promotes a feeling of positivity within the workplace. We’re here to offer a variety of ways that HR and business leaders can celebrate and acknowledge employees’ loyal service.

Virgin Gift Card

With the average worker staying at their job for 4 and a half years, it’s now more crucial than ever for HR and business leaders to go that extra mile in rewarding employees who have stayed for 10, 15 or 20+ years. The Virgin Gift Card is a passport to the world of Virgin, offering extra special VIP rewards for Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Wines, Virgin Holidays, Virgin Balloon Flights and Virgin Experience Days.

If employees are offered greater job fulfilment and rewarded for a display of loyalty, they will, in return feel more invested in their work, which will ultimately benefit your wider company and its culture.

Gift Fun Experiences

From online cooking classes to arts and crafts sessions, and tutored gin tastings, there’s a fun experience to reward every employee. Not only will such experiences show your employees that you value their loyalty, but it will also provide them with unforgettable memories and allow them to choose something that interests them.
