Everyone loves free swag and your employees are no exception. Whether you gift your employees with a cool branded hat, sunglasses with your company colors, or a koozie for the annual company picnic, it is a gesture that goes a long way. See just how a little swag can improve your company culture and increase morale.
Break the ice. For a new employee coming in on their first day, you can have a little company starter pack waiting for them--maybe a t-shirt, water bottle, and sticker. Walking in on the first day and seeing a little package waiting for them at their desk can make all the difference in making them feel welcomed and show you care.
Recognize achievements. Little goodies for a job well done on a project show your employees you appreciate them. Creating a rewards program can serve as a little competition and boost motivation. It feels nice to get a little pat on the back and even nicer when there are gifts involved.
Excuse for employees to share what they love about work. When your employees spend a leisurely Sunday in the park tossing around a branded frisbee or show up to a 5k wearing a company baseball cap, people notice. It’s a great conversation starter and is a gateway for your employees to boast about your company, what a great place it is to work, and the variety of services you provide. Your employees become walking billboards for you without even realizing it.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
