Philosophy – Great Gifts….Great prices…..Great Staff!
For over three decades we have worked at sourcing great gifts at great prices. When a customer picks up a product in Temptation we want them to think “ What great value”
Thirty years ago – when we opened a small store in Berkhamsted – it was fairly unusual to be ‘greeted’ when you walked into a shop. We decided that each and every customer should be made to feel welcome when they visited our store so all our team members are asked to smile and say hello to each and every customer. It really matters that they have chosen to visit us today so we always try to go the extra mile and let them know that they are appreciated.
So all employees are expected to look, sound and be enthusiastic as they only thing more contagious than enthusiasm is… lack of enthusiasm. We have no room for mood hoovers!
Growth and Career Development
Temptation Gifts is growing fast, and our best people will grow with us. Our Head of Retail is the most senior person in the company, but she first worked first in the warehouse, then the stores, before managing one store then another and now, well, everybody! The Head of E-Commerce first worked for Temptation as a Christmas Temp in the warehouse. Each of our current branch managers was a sales assistant before joining the management programme and each now has her own store. We are continuing to open new stores and the web department is doubling in size and turnover every two years. Cream rises, and we promote from within.
