The Waterford Gift Voucher encourages shopping in Waterford and helps boost the local economy. The Voucher Scheme was launched in 2013 and has been strongly supported by many employers in Waterford – directly helping over 130 participating businesses (full list here).
As year-end approaches, we ask employers to consider the Waterford Gift Voucher when rewarding their employees for Christmas or performance-related bonuses. This form of support will make a significant difference as we work to protect existing jobs and drive the local economy.
