This study examined the relationship between the frequency of non-monetary gifts employees receive and their engagement level in the organization. In particular, it investigated the relationship of the frequency of recognition, festive and welfare gifts received and employee engagement, mediated by their perceived organizational support. It was also hypothesized that the relationship between the frequency of gifts and perceived organizational support was moderated by the degree of personalization of each of the gifts. Correlation and regression analysis were conducted to test these hypotheses. The results from the 110 working adults surveyed found support for two of the hypotheses relating festive and welfare gifts and employee engagement but not for the other hypotheses, after controlling for gender, age, industry, tenure, and job position. This report concludes by providing practical implications for organizations and suggestions for future research.
