The Value of Company Gifts on Employee Appreciation Day (Ideas Included)

by John Amato

In a world where meetings are screen-to-screen and pajama day has replaced Friday casual, how do you build positive work connections if you can’t get Karen on the call? (Was that her?) 

Jupmode has your back with custom branded company merchandise showing your employees you appreciate them and still want them on your team. 

Let’s table the COVID celebrations for National Cereal or Meatball Day this March and make a move toward celebrating your work culture. Employee Appreciation Day is in early March and Jupmode’s promotional gifts are launching into the work-o-sphere. 

Show You Care with Company Gear

According to Harvard Business Review positive work cultures are more productive, engaging and promote longevity in both health and career. On the flip side, stressful work environments and leadership behavior can be linked to anything from a bad workweek to cardiovascular disease. 

In other words, It’s a good time to show your employees some love!

“Wellbeing comes from one place, and one place only — a positive culture.” - HBR

When was the last time someone presented you with some custom swag? Showing you care with custom gear can take many forms with the results securing a sense of brand loyalty and the future success of your business. 

It really comes down to the people on that Zoom call and their satisfaction as part of the whole. Keep your team spirit alive and well with custom branded merchandise for all your MVPs.

The Science of Customized Swag

As many workplaces operate with employees working from home, the opportunity to create connecting points is available through gifts of customized merchandise. And actually a need for routine can help establish boundaries between working and not working in the same space you live. 

Providing a customized tee or something tactile employees can use during work hours establishes a sense of time and place. And when they “clock out” for the grocery store with a customized tote bag, you’ll still be offering value while creating brand identity. 

“Did you get the tote bag I sent you?” :) … And here’s a recipe for meatballs.

As author and former dot com executive Seth Godin touts, “People like us do things like this” - things being the ultimate Employee Appreciation Day deliveries that build better teams. Your pathway to a brighter future lies in the actions you take now. Connect with Jupmode

”Culture is more important than strategy, than benefits, than features. Culture is more important than price, than governments, than technology. Culture shapes all our decisions and culture can change…when our sense of ‘us’ forces it to.” - Seth Godin

Build company culture by showing gratitude

Social interaction has become less and less mandatory as people work from home while the world navigates through the COVID-19 response. It is not reassuring that even when you come across a familiar face, you’re forced to identify them by their forehead. And it is difficult to weather the solitude that comes with being physically distant.

Gifts like those for Employee Appreciation Day are a nice way to bring people back to something they can count on- you!

Unexpected gifts of gratitude create positive vibes! Once you’ve delivered your promotional gifts follow up by: 

  • Caring for, being interested in, and maintaining responsibility for colleagues as friends.
  • Providing support for one another, including offering kindness and compassion when others are struggling.
  • Avoiding blame and forgiving mistakes.
  • Inspiring one another at work.
  • Emphasizing the meaningfulness of the work.
  • Treating one another with respect, gratitude, trust, and integrity.
