Did you know, surveys show more than half of employees are disengaged? Disengaged, meaning they’re simply “going through the motions” everyday.
Building a great team with the right people in the right seat takes a lot of effort. You have to find the right people that have the right tools that best represent your company. But what do you do when you have those people in place? How do you keep those employees working for you? How do you get them to have a great sense of pride for the company that they work so hard for? One of the most effective ways to keep your employees happy is to show them how much you appreciate them.
Promotional products can play a great role in making sure that your employees feel appreciated. Companies often will celebrate birthdays, holidays, or milestone dates with their employees; but taking the engagement with your staff to the next level can really make a difference. Recognizing the hard work that they put in everyday will go a long way.
A great way to get some positive involvement from your employees is to create some fun activities or contests for the office to participate in. Some activities you can create are:
- a sales contest
- select a charity that all of the staff can see who can raise the most donations for.
- Healthy living contest
There really is no limit to what you can do, but the key is to motivate your staff to feel good about the company that they work for. And in the process you can incentivize and reward them for reaching their goals with some promotional products. This is a win win because the employee will have or wear your promotional product to display to others outside of the company and they will have a sense of accomplishment and pride in their achievement.
