Businesses have experienced a challenging past 18 months with shut downs, social distancing challenges and remote working requirements. This has been challenging for all involved, particularly your employees. As we start to regain some normalcy or at least establishing a new normal, it may be a good time to roll out new employee incentive programs. Something fun, something more relatable to the new conditions as well as creating an environment of camaraderie and team. One way you can do this is with programs that offer rewards for high performers and exemplary contribution. Additionally, as you bring on new team members, a welcome gift can make a big statement about how your business appreciates it’s employees.
As a full service signage and branding company, Paramount Signs offers a full line of promotional products that can meet your needs. Here are a few categories to consider.
New Employee Gifts
Make new members of your staff feel welcome right off the bat with branded gifts and incentives. Promotional desk and office supplies make a great gift, giving new employees everything they need to start strong at their new job. Create a bundle of branded goodies by putting together notebooks, pens, planners and USB drives and leaving them on your staff member’s desk before they arrive. A “Welcome” balloon tied to their desk chair is sure to put a smile on their face.
Thank employees for their years of service by surprising them with anniversary gifts. You’ll want to spend a little more on upscale incentives for these promos to make your staff feel as appreciated as you want them to feel. Personalized plaques are great for commemorating a milestone. Or, try high-end paper weights, watches or drink ware. Branded outerwear is also always appreciated. It is great for keeping in the office for chilly mornings.
There are many opportunities to celebrate your employees’ hard work throughout the year. For instance, announce a sales contest for your account representatives and reward the employee with the highest revenue contribution with branded apparel or a wine gift basket. Celebrate top performers with personalized trophies and a President’s Award at the end of the year or quarter. It’s okay to spend a little extra here, as your order quantities will be lower than company-wide promos.
Show your appreciation for employees who have built their career with your company when it’s time for them to retire. For these staff members, invest in upscale collectibles that they can proudly display at home to remember their time working with you. Surprise them with high-end engraved crystal items, or a luxury engraved pen set for their home office. Don’t forget a plaque engraved with their years of service to show you recognize the time your employee has dedicated to your business.
