Customized youinkit swag box

As humans, we want to be seen and appreciated for all of our hard work, and what better way to do that than welcoming your new employees to the company with their own personalized swag box! 

According to a recent study by Towers Watson, only 7% of employees feel their company appreciates their work, while a whopping 79% claim that feeling under-appreciated was their reason for leaving their previous job. Low employee morale can not only lead to a negative mindset but also reduce concentration while working. When an employee knows how much they are valued as a team member it lights a fire under them! Providing things such as incentives for one’s performance is something that leads to more driven and dedicated employees! 

Let’s boost one another up and make your new team member feel special! With YouInkIt personalized swag box you offer that feeling of excitement and rush of adrenaline when opening their new company box. Make sure to celebrate your team’s achievements with these 14 high-quality gift ideas they’ll treasure.
