“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” – Melody Beattie
Thank you gifts are a way of giving back to the people who make your company run: employees, clients, and partners. But corporate gifts are more than just good HR policy or ways to keep clients and partners happy. If chosen thoughtfully, they can reinforce your brand and strengthen your community. As you’re selecting employee appreciation or other corporate gifts this year, consider these steps.
Start with your mission.
Instead of starting with what color the gift should be or where the logo should be placed, first ask yourself: What’s the mission of your company? What need in the world does your company fill? Match your corporate gifts to your company’s mission to reinforce that mission for your employees and clients.
Consider your company’s values.
Include things like equity, equality, and inclusion; sustainability; and community involvement. Make sure that the gifts you choose are aligned with these values. Employees will notice if you walk the talk of what you say your values are. When the company demonstrates its values in every action it takes, even corporate gifts, those values are strengthened at every level of the company.
Know your employees and clients.
One of the good feelings about receiving a gift is the feeling of being known - your tastes, your needs, your experiences, and what you enjoy. Choose gifts for employees with real value to the employees so that the gift giving treats them as a whole person and therefore becomes a chance to build employee loyalty to the company. Finding a unique gift is a great idea (i.e., Unless your business is a coffee shop, don’t give coffee mugs with your logo on them! You can do better.)
Overlay your brand.
The last step in choosing a corporate gift is to make sure that the branding (ie color, design, feel) matches your company’s. When you choose a gift that aligns with your mission, values, and employees, they will be more likely to enjoy the gift and will be proud to show it off to others in their communities. This is a sign of a good gift and a branding opportunity.
These corporate gifts are sure to surprise your employees and Clients.
