May Day or International Labour Day is celebrated all over the world on the 1st of May every year to pay tribute to the contributions made by the workers across the world. Earlier in Europe, May 1 was historically associated with rural pagan festivals but the original meaning was gradually replaced by the modern association with the labour movement. The most prominent one was during the era of industrialisation, US industrialists exploited the working class by making them work for long hours in a day. On May 1, 1886, the labour class came together and revolted against this unjust system and asked for paid leaves, good wages and proper breaks. This is the reason why May Day is celebrated every year.
In India, the first May Day was celebrated in Madras (now known as Chennai) by the Labour Kisan Party of Hindustan on May 1, 1923. It was also the first time the Red Flag which symbolises Labour Day was used in India.
That’s pretty much a brief idea about celebrating May 1 as Labour Day. Today, it’s about celebrating the workers and their contribution to a firm or company and we can all agree a celebration is incomplete without gifts or feasting. Well, let’s keep it simple in this time of pandemic and just stick to gifting. In these difficult times, you can convey your appreciation to your employees by getting them gifts for the occasion of May Day.
Choose a gift that is beautiful, useful and sustainable. Headway drinkware got it all and their collections are just perfect for corporate gifting. But before you jump to the conclusion of getting your employees the gifts, let’s shed some light on why is it important to do so.
Why are employee gifts important?
A company’s success depends largely on its employees. Happy employees make a good workplace environment that will boost work productivity and to some extent reduces employee turnover.
Gifting is not just about making your employees happy but it’s more about their deserving. They deserve it for their hard work, the overtime and all the effort they put in to make the company run smoothly. Appreciating their hard work can boost their morale and motivate them to work with loyalty. A thoughtful gift can even bridge the gap between the employer and employees when there are situations difficult to have a good rapport. Gifting also ensures the employees are respected, valued and in turn create a workforce with a positive mindset sharing the same goals and objectives.
Corporate gifting can be arranged for festivals, events, achievements, special occasions etc. but there won’t be a day more apt than May Day to show appreciation for your employees.
