Office gifts can be an integral part of your organization’s people policies. Let’s face it, an office setting where team members are periodically recognized, rewarded or just surprised is going to be a lot more positive, productive and energized than an office that resembles another day in Solomon’s Salt Mines. Working in an environment where team bonds are strong and routinely reinforced are frequently cited reasons that organizations retain good people so occasional office gifts that a team can share can contribute to that positive environment. And when it comes to universally embraced office gifts, chocolate is king.
According to Gourmet Healthy Chocolates, nine out of ten people love chocolate and fifty percent of the population can’t go a day without eating some. Across the globe, it is estimated that one billion people eat chocolate every day. Chocolate makes people happy – both emotionally and physiologically. Chocolate has been shown to raise serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain, both of which help create relaxed and positive feelings. The kind you want in your office and another great reason why your choice of office gifts should be gourmet chocolate.

What is Chocolate Pizza?
