Multi retailer gift vouchers business Christmas gift of choiceBecause employers can’t be expected to know what each and every one of their staff would like to receive as a Christmas gift, Sodexo is launching its brand new Christmas campaign ‘Everyone’s Different’. The campaign is aimed at HR and sales promotion professionals with the message that by giving multi–retailer vouchers, you’re giving the gift of choice to your staff and clients this Christmas.

Yet, by giving someone the option of choosing a gift for themselves with a voucher, you’re not only offering choice but also giving yourself peace of mind that your gift will be appreciated!” Continue reading
