9 Swag Ideas to Send to Remote Workers

by Feb 9, 2021

As 2021 is in full swing, more and more companies are becoming flexible with how their employees are able to work. Remote work options, a mix of both at home and in the office, and working back at the office full time are just a few of the ways companies are allowing employees to work. With different work environments in play, it’s easy to feel disconnected from your staff. 

Are you looking for a creative and fun way to connect with your employees, clients, and customers? Corporate swag can be lame or a waste of time and money if you pick items that are cheaply made, have been done a thousand times, or items that you know your employees wouldn’t like. When choosing the best swag, picking creative and exciting gifts that your employees will want to hold on to for a long time is key. 

Stressed about corporate swag? We’ve created a guide to help you decide the best corporate swag gifts to connect you with your employees, clients, and potential customers. 

Customized Care Packages for Remote Employees

More and more companies have expanded their work environments from the office to home offices and kitchen tables all across the country. Some employees work part time from home, while others dedicate all 40+ hours per week working remotely. While this is a benefit for some, by creating some flexibility and freedom to work wherever, worker morale can fluctuate as employees may feel distant and disconnected from their teams. 

Custom swag boxes sent out to remote employees are an important step to keeping those connections viable and strong. People love opening presents and receiving gifts, and corporate swag boxes are just that. By customizing your boxes to be tailored to each individual, you’re keeping those connections strong and making sure your employees know that they are appreciated.
