In our efforts to collaborate with Yorkshire businesses and encourage Sheffield investment, we have recently began working with two more Sheffield companies, who are offering the Sheffield Gift Card as an employee incentive to their staff. The gift card, which can be used at over 80 shops, leisure venues, restaurants and bars across the city centre, can be loaded with any amount from £5, making it the perfect gift for Sheffield staff.
Following recent conversations, Sheffield Theatres have chosen to offer the gift card to their workforce as a corporate gift and to commemorate continued service. Claire Murray, Communications and Fundraising Director said ‘We have recently reviewed our rewards and recognition framework for the staff team at Sheffield Theatres. For long serving members we wanted to offer a gift card, and we wanted it to be broad enough to appeal to the range of people who work here. The Sheffield Gift card presented the perfect solution: it offers our staff a range of places in which they can spend their card and it enables us to support other city centre businesses.
We’d like to thank the BID team for making the process of ordering the gift cards so easy. We’ll be making our first presentation to staff later in August.’
Another company to introduce the gift card is Sheffield based recruitment firm, Benchmark Recruitment. Based in the Workstation on Patternoster Row, Benchmark marry up talented jobseekers with their dream careers. They offer a referral reward to anyone who recommends a friend for a role and will now be offering the Sheffield Gift Card. Speaking to Managing Director Louisa Harrison-Walker, she said “We’re delighted to get behind the Sheffield Gift Card and offer this as part of our Refer a Friend Scheme. We are great advocates of all things Sheffield and are keen to attract people to the city; the reward card does exactly this showcasing the best of retail, entertainment and cultural experiences in the city.”
