Introducing Autogifting, a new way to send thoughtful employee gifts at scale

At Goody, we’re passionate about the ways thoughtful gifts can foster a culture of employee engagement and belonging. That’s why we’re launching Autogifting, a new way to automatically recognize employees for milestones like birthdays and work anniversaries.

Autogifting is powered by 20+ seamless integrations with the most popular HR platforms, including ADP, Justworks, Zenefits, Gusto, Workday, BambooHR, and many more.

You can use Autogifting to automatically send a digital card and curated gifts for:

1. Employee birthdays

2. Work anniversaries, which can set at different values depending on tenure (such as 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year anniversaries) 

Choose from Goody’s collection of 250+ unique, highly curated brands, including Levain Bakery, Therabody, Ember, Parachute, and Milk Bar – or gift customized company swag. As always, gift recipients can swap for equal or lower-priced options if they prefer, and you can track gift statuses and thank-you notes, all in one place.

What are the benefits of Autogifting?

When it comes to increasing employee engagement and reducing attrition, there are few tools more economical than thoughtful, personalized, and well-timed gifts. Behavioral research has shown that when workers receive physical gifts from their employers, it can increase productivity by as much as 25%, and drive far higher gains than the same costs paid in the form of cash bonuses.

Yet in spite of the clear ROI, few companies have consistent systems in place to recognize their hard-working employees on birthdays or work anniversaries. 

If employees do get recognized on these special days, it’s usually thanks to gregarious managers and colleagues going above and beyond. That inconsistency leads, quite often, to shy or newer employees with fewer close ties not getting recognized at all, which can make them feel like losers in a workplace popularity contest – the opposite of a culture of belonging.

Autogifting makes company-wide employee recognition consistent, personalized, and absolutely effortless.
