Healthcare manufacturer Renishaw rewarded each of its 1,800 UK staff with a £30 Love2shop gift card for Christmas.
The pre-loaded card can be used at high-street shops such as Argos, BHS, Boots, Comet, Debenhams and HMV.
Hannah Hind, personnel administrator, said: “Our board is committed to rewarding the hard work and dedication shown by everyone during the year.
“The level of choice is important because our staff are spread across the UK. There is literally something for everyone.”
In the past, Renishaw gave staff a paper gift voucher, but has moved to electronic cards to deliver ease of administration and wider choice.
