Just about everyone is well aware that expectations around career planning are changing. It's the Great Resignation, and even if you think changing meeting cadences will help your organization retain talent, think again. Companies who have long profited from low wages, poor benefits and generally exploitive practices might be too far gone to be able to make effective changes. But if your organization is simply looking for ways to keep employees engaged by telling them how much you value them? We've got a perfect addition to that strategy: employee gift packaging.
With the holidays around the corner, sharing gratitude is in the air. Redirecting that gratitude to your employees is a no-brainer. And with the proper employee gift packaging in place, your employees will be more focused on the thought behind the gift rather than the gift itself.
How Employee Gift Packaging Increases Retention
It might be tempting to simply add some dollars to your employees paychecks, but we would argue against that. As would others. Extra dollars have a way of going toward things that are... Less than fun. A bonus, or an employee incentive, should embody fun or frivolity. It should be something that your employees appreciate but maybe not buy for themselves. That's why experiences, like trips, or luxury items, like watches, are perennial employee gift favorites. They hit the right chord of appreciation.
But even if your organization isn't in a place to gift everyone a Rolex, you can still do something smaller. A commemorative pin or coin, or a joking nod to an inside joke. These are things that are meaningful without being spendy. And of course, any gift is elevated with customized packaging.
Give Your Employees the Recognition They Deserve
The example above shows a set of employee recognition boxes we created. Employees were gifted a trip, and we worked with the organization to craft a design that meets their needs and, we think, conveys a sense of place and excitement. We can also create more standard gift boxes for your company, using your colors and branding, or something more unique.
