    The high-tech industry is the only industry in which the value of gifts was recorded, at a rate of 13%: from NIS 400 in 2019 to NIS 450 this year. According to Dagan Ronen, co-CEO of the high-tech workers 'high-tech workers' club, "Due to the cancellation of traditional summer events, the industry's employees have a free budget, which has been channeled by quite a few high-tech companies to buy more expensive gifts." According to the club, which provides more than 150,000 gifts to employees this year, only 7 percent of companies have reduced their budget, while 18 percent have increased it. The rest stuck to a pre-set budget at the beginning of the year.

    The Hitekzon Consumer Club provides companies with a special trading site where employees can choose a gift from a range of options. Products sold include WIRELESS and AIRPOD headphones, King clean and Dyson vacuum cleaners, gaming chairs and ninja brand products.

    According to Ronen, unlike in previous years, this year more gifts made in Israel were included in the mix in order to help local businesses. These are many thousands of beanbags, bedding and luxury packages of olive oil purchased and distributed to employees. At the same time, there was also an increase in the number of employees who chose to realize the benefit in the form of receiving a voucher for prestigious chef restaurants. He also notes that unlike in previous years, many employees choose to upgrade the gift for an additional fee with the hit being 65- to 75-inch wide TVs, many of which have been sold in recent weeks. In his opinion, the reason for this is money saved from the cancellation of the traditional summer vacation, which is directed in favor of equipping and upgrading the house as well as the need to make the stay in the home space more pleasant.
