Saying ‘Thank You’ – How to Show Your Employees Appreciation with Branded Promotional Gifts and Products
- On June 7, 2021
Whether you work in an office, from home, or on a manufacturing floor, your coworkers and employees under your leadership are there with you. Some may work harder or maybe one of them closed a big client that has been rough to deal with. They are striving for your company and one of the best ways to show that you recognize it is through certain types of promotional products and personalized awards.
Promotional products aren’t just for marketing purposes. They can be used to celebrate any occasion or event. Let’s just talk about that one team or individual that took one step further than their job description or they pulled long hours to finish a project and it came out amazing. What would you gift them?
- Do they need it? – Have your employees been asking for certain items that can help them do their job in a much smoother, easier way? Is there anything that can make their work environment more comfortable? Products like a new mouse pad is a small gesture but for someone that uses it every day, its greatly appreciated. Stress balls are also favored for the times when things get hectic.
- Do they want it? – Maybe one of your employee’s attendance is perfect, they never missed one hour of work, and they are finally going on vacation to do a specific activity. Camping, for instance, requires a lot of gear. Getting to know your star gazing staff member by asking them what they want for their trip can give you the inside scoop. Possibly a pop-up canopy with your company’s logo, or just a throw blanket for sitting around the fire when there’s a chill in the air.
- Goals – Turning a job into a friendly competition can produce beneficial results while being fun. To make things even more interesting; having an incentive like a customized glass award or a complete personalized drinkware set is something they can aim for. Sure, Employee of the Month is great, but what about the associate that sold the most for a campaign? Or the one that can fix a flat the fastest at the tire shop?
- Occasions- During the holidays, ornaments are the little tokens of the season. Birthdays are another time to show gratitude and a sense of personability. Maybe one of your employees became a new parent. There is something special for everyone.
When you give an outstanding member of your team a gift to say “Hey, I noticed you did a fantastic job, you deserve this.” It goes beyond saying Thank You. It boosts morale and gives the other employees the ambition to reach that point of excellence. All the while portraying great leadership to newer employees, trainees, and interns by demonstrating how a business holds respect for each of its members.
No matter what the occasion is, clothing is always a nice way to show your appreciation. With a pull over or golf shirt, embroidered with your brand’s logo, not only does the award winner have something tangible to be proud of, but it’s also getting noticed by possible clients. If they work from home, during their next digital face meeting, the webcam will show that shirt and give the sense of team spirit. You can have specific apparel items made for special situations like representing the company at conventions or a high vis for helping parking cars at an event.
To wrap it all up, branded gift boxes and kits bundle up all the ways you can say Thank You. With established swag inside, the outside will sport your logo right from the beginning, letting the recipient know who graciously gave it to them.
Here, at Print House, we can set you up with unique items that will show your appreciation for one or all. Everything from apparel to bags and drinkware, to office products, all are customizable to express that extra Thank You.
