Don’t let distance deter acts of appreciation and recognition. Employee engagement through appreciation and recognition programming is a key part of building culture, cultivating loyalty, improving employee retention, and creating a sense of belonging and value within an organization.

Recent data shows that 3 in 5 Fortune 500 companies (58%) are now operating multi-nationally, with employees living and working around the globe. Engage employees around the globe through the power of gifting. Snappy delivers gifts globally, currently serving 176 countries worldwide along with dozens of global territories and islands. From the shores of Guam to the vibrant streets of India, Snappy ensures that heartfelt gestures of appreciation can reach recipients far and wide.

Meaningful gifts are given in the spirit of gratitude for jobs well done, appreciation for colleagues and networks, and whether big or small, each gesture of giving has the power to strengthen relationships, foster deeper connections, and spread joy.

Here’s everything you need to know about international gifting:

Choosing the perfect gift

Selecting a meaningful and impactful gift involves considering a recipient's unique interests, preferences, and needs. It’s hard enough to select the perfect gift for a spouse, child, or close friend, let alone a colleague that lives on the other side of the globe.
