Paul Hebert poses Year End Employee "Gifts" – Better for Engagement?

Year-end gifts to employees are not as popular as they have been in the past.  I don’t hear about people getting meats, cheeses and other grocery items as much as I used to.  I worked for moving company while in college (yup… I was the guy who packed, loaded, drove, and unpacked all your broken china…yes – it was broken before I packed it…) and the company owner

gave each person a 20 lb turkey for Christmas.

I’m not seeing much of that anymore.  Maybe our refrigerators are smaller or maybe the turkey isn’t as cool a gift as an ipad.
