Employee retention starts on Day One: The employee welcome gift

Across all generations, employment retention specialists find that employees feel that recognition is the number one thing that drives them to do great work. And on the flip side, lack of appreciation is also the number one reason people leave their jobs.

In short, no one likes to be ignored, and it makes sense to spread the spirit of recognition all the way to an employee’s first day in the office. A thoughtful, useful or fun welcome package lets new hires know they’re valued, and it can give a sense of your company’s culture. Tech startups might be inclined to give a gift like our Garner Knit Full Zip Hoody (ladies style can be viewed here). A more ‘corporate’ employer might stick to tried and true options like our Oxford Slim 15” Computer Briefcase or a 20oz Vacuum Tumbler.

So why wait to recognize employees? Welcoming new hires with a collection of branded products makes them feel like a valued member of the team from day one. When selecting items, consider a mix of products ranging from the practical (think sports bottles and journals) to things that are just plain fun (bluetooth speakers and drones). Here are a few new products we’d be excited to see on our desk when we started a new job:

Earth Day 2017 – 3 Trends To Green Your Brand Image

As we move into the celebrations of the 47th Earth Day, it’s a great time to reflect on the ways that our thinking has changed since 1970. And it’s a good time to look at ways you can improve the earth-impact of your company with some smart promotional choices.

Banning the bag

A number of municipalities and cities are moving to ban the plastic checkout bags and still others are introducing legislation to charge for them. New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington D.C.* are just some of the cities trying to limit their reliance on plastic bags. And while not every city is trying to cut plastic bag use, you can certainly see reusable shopping bags everywhere – making them a great opportunity to promote your business. We have a wide variety of totes available to match your budget and share your brand.

Taming our thirst for disposable bottles

For the first time ever, bottled water is expected to outsell soda in 2017*. That’s great news for our health, but it’s not especially great for our efforts to reduce the amount of plastic in our landfills. That fact has driven a growing number of cities to ban the use of single-use plastic bottles.

In 2013, Concord, Massachusetts became one of the first communities in the U.S. to ban the sale of single-serving plastic water bottles. Not long after, San Francisco introduced a ban on the sale of single-use plastic water bottles on city-owned property, and will be extended to include events held outdoors on public property. Also, dozens of universities and national park sites have also banned plastic bottles.

Brown bagging it – without the brown bag

Occasionally something that’s considered to be simply a smart practice really comes into vogue. And one of the most popular ‘simply smart ideas’ these days is bringing your lunch to work. Nutritionists love this idea because it’s the easiest way to eat smart throughout the workday. Economists love it because bringing your lunch to work is a simple way to save money. And the earth loves when you bring your lunch to work in reusable containers because it eliminates paper and plastic waste and cuts down on food waste.

The innovative Artic Zone® Ice Wall Lunch Cooler features four removable ice packs that slide into the walls of the cooler, making it perfect for lunch on the go where there might not be a refrigerator.
