5 Great Gifts to Show Employee Appreciation

Header

 

Let’s talk about appreciation in the workplace. It’s something not all of us are familiar with, because unfortunately, it isn’t addressed nearly as much as it should be. When we get busy at work, employee appreciation is one of the first things to go out the window. It’s easy to shrug it off by saying your employees are just doing what they get paid for, but they’re a valuable part of your team and should be treated as such!

Appreciation is not only a fundamental human need, but also a top motivator (even surpassing money, in some cases!) for harder work and stronger commitment to companies. Simple appreciation keeps workers from wanting to leave and find a different job. It establishes a mentality that says, “We’re all in this together,” which strengthens relationships and company culture!

Not only does it keep employees at your company, but it also provides positive feelings to spread throughout the office, like optimism, trust, and confidence. These are things that will encourage employees to work harder and increase their productivity for your company! Appreciation in the workplace benefits everyone and creates a happier, more profitable environment.

There are many ways to recognize our employees, including a simple, heartfelt thank you. A direct thanks or positive feedback from a boss makes us feel like human beings, not just a cog in the machine. Other options to show appreciation are treats – lunches or parties to celebrate accomplishments – useful gifts, or involving them in decision making. We’ve taken the time to find a few fantastic options for employee appreciation gifts that are available right on our Promotion Pros website! Take a look.

Who Let The Dogs Out - Get Out There With Them!

Today, being active is the goal, whether to lose weight, de-stress, or just get outdoors. National Walk Your Dog Week,  founded in 2010 by Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate Colleen Paige, helps dog owners and their dogs do exactly that. 

Walking Alleviates Stress for Everyone, Even the Dog!

Be honest, a quick walk around the block isn't enough activity for you OR Fido.  But 30 minutes of walking, three times a week, lowers blood pressure and can reduce your weight by 5% (15% for your doggy partner). Amazing, right? In fact, lack of exercise can also result in destructive behavior, aggression and separation anxiety for a dog. National Dog Week strives to help build a habit to prevent those issues. When your business acknowledges that health connection between owner and dog, you connect with real life for your customers. Sponsor an event in your area and consider our woven pet collars with your pet store, veterinary hospital or boarding kennel logo, as a giveaway. 

Promote Healthy Pets by Holding Your Own Event

Celebrate National Walk Your Dog Week by starting your own event! Collapsi-Bowls are an obvious choice for pet fundraisers, doggy walks, or even offering as an item for sale in the weeks leading up to the celebration. They're perfect for hikes and a quick drink on the go. The carabiner makes them an ideal take along that can clip to a belt, our silk-screened logo leash or even a doggy backpack! 

Bag dispensers are another great gift idea that not only promotes health and walking but also keeps trails and parks clean. No celebrations in your community? Consider the great ideas found on the National Walk Your Dog site! From costume parades, to library walks, to hospital visits, there are many ways to get out there with the dogs and promote health for owners and their furry companions! 

Celebrating National Walk Your Dog Week and looking for a way to make your presence memorable? Give us a call today, we've got lots of great ideas and are waiting to help.

 

Be Aware, Show Them You Care

If your business or organization is related to healthcare, or women's health, or your customers or staff are women, take a stand in support of breast cancer awareness. Men also get breast cancer. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, approximately 1 in one thousand men will be diagnosed. Is that news? Actually, that's what the whole awareness thing is about, spreading the word, educating your community, and bringing a common disease out into the open to talk about. Why not make this the year that your business takes a stand and show you care!

Fundraising for Awareness

Fidget spinner are hot items right now. Why not sell our awareness spinners as a fundraiser and make a donation to a local hospital? Or consider creating a breast cancer awareness basket for each of your locations, and sell raffle tickets, with proceeds going to Susan G. Komen or a local women's health clinic. Giving to your immediate community, especially for a cause that is impactful to so many can really spread the word about your brand, and may even be a great PR opportunity.

Get Your Employees Involved

Breast cancer touches everyone. During Breast Cancer Awareness month, create a company team for a local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The American Cancer Society's site offers team tips and sign ups. If you do decide to create a team, or an entire event, our Sport-Tek 1/4 zip pullover in Pink Raspberry supports your Go Pink! efforts, and can feature your company's logo with an inspirational message. For non-walking employees or customers, select an item they can keep on their desk to support the cause throughout the year. Our Hulo pen in pink with a company logo is a simple choice that everyone can use.
