Are you welcoming back staff and employees after New Jersey’s stay-at-home order? If so, this is probably an uncertain time for them and you. While it’s nice to see New Jersey reopening businesses, there are many new guidelines to follow. As your staff and employees transition into their new roles, it’s a nice gesture to give them a post COVID swag pack.
A post COVID swag pack is similar to an ordinary swag pack, except that it’s filled with things related to COVID like personal protective equipment (PPE). These welcome back kits are a great way to acknowledge your employees’ loyalty to your company and remind them that you’re all in this together!
Below are some of the must-have items to place in your COVID-themed employee welcome back kit.
You can’t go wrong with hand sanitizer. Everyone needs to be hand washing or using hand sanitizer more frequently, so it’s important to have enough of these products on hand for your staff and employees. Plus, hand sanitizer is still hard to find in stores, so your employees may not have their own to bring in.
Yes, there’s such a thing as phone sanitizer. Your employees will love receiving this thoughtful gift because phones carry 10 times more bacteria than toilet seats! Yuck! Encouraging clean phones in your workplace also supports a healthy work environment where less germs and bacteria are spread.
Face Masks and Ear Savers
Wearing masks is the new norm in New Jersey, but this doesn’t mean they’re easy to wear all day long. Ensure improved comfort and durability by providing your employees with disposable face masks or imprinted face covers. Throw in a pack of inexpensive ear savers to make mask-wearing more comfortable.
What happens when employees need to take their masks off, such as while eating? Rather than having masks lying around the workplace and picking up germs, provide your employees with handy mask keepers. Similar to a lanyard, these polyester bands are worn around the neck to keep face masks within reach.
Tissues and Wet Wipes
People still have allergies in the summer, so don’t expect your workplace to be a sneeze-free zone. What you can do is provide each employee with the things they need to stay healthy and prevent germ spreading, such as their own box of tissues and antibacterial wet wipes. In fact, you can make it a habit to have everyone wipe down their desks at the end of the day.
Most people are looking forward to getting back to work, so show your employees that you value and respect them by presenting them with an employee welcome back swag kit. Fill it with the essentials as well as some COVID-related merchandise to keep them safe and healthy. You need to invest in these products anyway, so why not turn them into a cool welcome back gift?
