Personalized Corporate Gifts & Welcome Kits For New Employees
People are almost always searching for corporate gift ideas for employees, clients and Diwali. But for some reason, no one seems to see the need for welcome kits and gifts for new employees. Let me explain what we’re on about.
You know when you go to a nice hotel, they give you some juice, a bracelet made of seashells (If it’s a beach side resort) and in cases such as honeymoons, they may even give you a bottle of fancy wine. This is always going to be appreciated by the guests. Whether they liked the juice, or whether they’ll ever wear the bracelets doesn’t matter. What matters is the sense of acknowledgement and a sense of importance that comes with welcoming presents. The same effect will be felt with a corporate gift or welcome kit for new employees.
So why not do the same with new employees? The thing is, when joining a new company, there is always a bit of pressure and a lot of uncertainty. People join feeling alien to the firm as they don’t know anyone or anything about the work culture. Giving them a present that welcomes them will surely make them feel that little bit better. So, let’s get into what could be the best possible corporate gifts for welcoming new employees.
All the corporate gifting ideas listed below can be recycled in order to reduce expenses and promote cost effective corporate gifting practices.
Personalized Coffee Mug
Out of all the possible corporate gifts for employees you could think of. Coffee/tea mugs will be the most used any day of the week. Having a personalized coffee mug will surely put a smile on the employee’s face. Especially if everyone else has cups with their name on it. The cup can bear your company branding along with the employee’s name and some designs to give it some flair. It’s a great way to help employees learn each other’s names too. These mugs are best kept at the workplace only as they can then be re-branded for other employees when they join.
Custom Laptop Skins
As far as working with corporate is concerned, you can have any laptop colour you want, as long as its black or white…. So why not give your new employees custom laptop skins that sport your company branding in an aesthetically pleasing design with some vibrant colors.
If your company is a bank, you could go for a very upscale minimalist design that focuses on class. If you’re a tech company, maybe go for something a little funky. There is no harm in a company or brand being termed as “cool”.
Another great and cost-effective way to welcome new employees is with showpieces or decor for their work desks. If you’re thinking, “well I don’t know what they’d like”, I’d like to remind you that you do have their CV… That usually tends to hold all the information you could need.
If not, upon hiring, simply ask them what kind of decor they like. You could even tell them it’s for a gift. They’ll be more than happy to share and would surely appreciate the effort being made from the company’s side. A great example of table decor in tech firms is superhero figures. They’re cool, small and usually quite easy to find online.
Standing Work Desks
If your new employee is on the tall side or has complained about back pain, you can gift them a standing work desk. Like all of our other corporate gift ideas, this one can be reused after old employees make way for new ones. You can bet that it’ll be used because these standing work desks really do reduce backpain and fatigue. Plus, it shows that your company cares about the health and well-being of its employees.
Custom Welcome Kit For Employees
Just imagine, you join a company and they give you a corporate gift box or a welcome kit loaded with goodies. Wouldn’t that make you feel a bit special?
The Welcome kits for new employees can simply house a custom notebook, pen, coffee mug and other daily use items. This kit will give your employees a sense of importance as it shows the amount of time your company puts into ensuring their new employees feel welcomed.
Custom Welcome Kit For Employees In Management
If you have new employees in the management side of things, you could curate upscale welcome kits for them. These welcome kits can house all of the above stand-alone items within an exquisitely packaged corporate gift box. You can bet that this gesture will be appreciated by the senior management as brands they would have worked for before, would have probably never thought of this. To add a touch of class, laptop skins, card holders and other popular corporate gift items can be added.
So, hopefully this will give your company some insight into cost effective corporate gifting and welcome kits for new employees and your management. It’s an out of the box idea, but it tends to be such ideas that turn into game changers.
