The holidays will be here before you know it, so now is a good time to start your employee gift shopping. This gives you enough time to choose thoughtful gifts that your employees will love. Not only can you express gratitude this way, but also you can strengthen company morale. When employees feel appreciated and valued, they are more loyal and motivated to succeed.
Reward your employees for a job well done with one of these ideas for corporate promotional merchandise. Let this be the best holiday season yet!
1. Personalized Swag
If you have a smaller workforce, present them with personalized gifts. People love receiving these items because they are exclusive and unique. Some of the most popular products to personalize are coffee mugs, water bottles, pens, notepads and lunch totes. You can also invest in comfortable, high-quality corporate apparel that is embroidered or screen printed with employee names or nicknames.
2. Points to Spend at the Company Store
If you have a company store filled with goodies, give your employees points that can be spent on whatever they want. For added fun, add seasonal items that will only be sold for a limited time. This will motivate employees to visit your store and use their points on something special. If you don’t have a company store, now is a great time to set one up. This post will help you determine if a company webstore is right for your brand.
3. Healthy Gifts
More employers are recognizing the relationship between employee health and productivity. When your staff is in good health, this results in fewer sick days, less spent on health insurance and improved motivation. To encourage healthy living, give employees a health-related holiday gift. This will also fit in with the “new year, new me” mantra. Ideas include pedometers, yoga mats, water bottles and resistance bands. Gym memberships and fitness classes can be paired with these items as well.
4. Tech Gifts
You can’t go wrong with tech-savvy employee gifts. They are fun and useful, which is why people appreciate them. Consider things that can be used to make your job more comfortable, such as noise-cancelling headphones. Or, think about unique gadgets that people don’t buy for themselves, such as dry bags for smartphones, bluetooth speakers and wireless earbuds.
5. Flexible Working Hours
If you’re limited on money, give the greatest gift of all – flex time! What employee wouldn’t love some extra time to get holiday shopping or gift wrapping done? If your company depends on regular hours, you can give longer lunch breaks or the option to work from home instead. Pair this with a small gift and your employees will be overjoyed.
