We know times are tough and that change sometimes brings new challenges. Several weeks ago, employees all over the world had to adjust to a whole new routine of remote work, e-learning, childcare, and so much more. Now we are looking at re-adjusting our lives once again, back to what we once knew as normal, as stay-at-home orders begin to lift and more businesses start to reopen. Stores are transitioning back to their normal hours; restaurants, salons, and entertainment venues are looking forward to welcoming back their customers. And for those who once had the daily grind of 9-to-5, we must now think about transitioning back to office life.
We are all in a different phase of re-adjustment. Some people are eager to get back into the office, while others have finally adapted to the ‘digital workforce’ and aren’t looking to go back anytime soon. Companies and employers must help bridge that gap and create a seamless transition back to office life. Now more than ever, recognizing and rewarding employees for their hard work, is one way organizations can boost morale and increase employee engagement as we move into this new phase.
One way to show them your appreciation (outside of another Zoom or email) is to send them a gift bundle. There’s no better way to welcome your employees back to office life than with a personal gift. There are plenty of ways to get creative!
Some things to consider while designing the perfect gift for your employees is to include essential office items such as personal sized hand-sanitizer and disinfecting wipes. Just knowing it’s one thing less they have to worry about would be a welcome relief. But just don’t think about the necessities, that’s the same as just getting socks for holidays. Add some fun and excitement to your bundle too! Including things like a S’Well water bottle, wireless ear buds, or even a little box of chocolates, adds a more personal touch and your employees will appreciate your thoughtfulness and creativity. And if your organization is not quite ready to transition back to the office you can just as easily send gift bundles straight to your employees’ home. Whatever you do, make it special. Adding your company logo to any item or wrap it with a branded box and tissue paper. Don’t forget to include a personalized message from executives and managers. We guarantee they will feel the appreciation and recognize that you have gone the extra mile!
Whether they’re already back in the office, working at home long-term, or on the front lines helping others, gift bundles are a great way to show you care. Contact a Marketing Innovators specialist today and we’ll help you turn your creative ideas into reality.
