Easter has become an increasingly important event for employers who want to provide extra-salary benefits to employees, 74% of the companies that provide gift vouchers giving them both on Christmas and Easter, according to data gather by Up Romania for year 2018. Of the client companies that surprised employees with gift vouchers for Easter 2018, 52% were SMEs.
As a location, the companies in Bucharest-Ilfov, Cluj and Brasov are among the top beneficiaries of this benefit. In recent years, Easter gift voucher sales have risen steadily by 10% each year.
"Employers have realized that gift vouchers are a modern and fast alternative to classical gifts because they simplify logistics and save many resources, including financial. The electronic ticket voucher, which we will soon have available on the Romanian market, will add to the simplicity and modernity of this motivation solution to our employees. Beyond the comfort and benefits for the employer, offering gift vouchers means, simply saying, giving a good gift. It is appropriate for the person who knows it can choose exactly what he likes and is something new every time, "said Elena Pap, General Manager of Up Romania.
"Up Cadou" vouchers come with financial benefits for both the employer and the employees because they are exempt from social contributions and income tax up to 150 lei per person. They can be granted to both employees and their minor children and are required to be used by December 31, 2019.
Gift vouchers offered to workers on holiday are personalized, like table tickets, with the employee's name and employee's CNP, in accordance with Law no. 165/2018.
At the same time, the employer has the option of personalizing vouchers with the company logo and can address a holiday celebration to all employees through Up Cadou vouchers. For added elegance, vouchers can be offered in Up Cadou envelopes, which also contain a guide to the most important brands where they can be spent.
Up Cadou vouchers can buy jewelry, cosmetics, clothing and footwear, books, toys, furniture, decorations, electronics and home appliances, travel services, and more.
This spring, Up Cadou vouchers do something more: bring those who need it to the table
