Today’s world seems to be flipped upside down in many different ways, not the least of which is how companies are using promotional products to engage their employees. However, one thing is certain; the brands providing recognition to their employees are seeing unmatched levels of loyalty and productivity from their employees. So, what are the best ways to do that while employees are working from home or from a potentially dangerous office location? Items that help keep them safe.
Now that can be a lot of different items. Many companies have gifted masks to their employees, and of course, at the beginning of this, we all saw the massive increase of hand sanitizer on the market. But items that promote employee safety go well beyond the traditional PPE gear that’s been flooding the market:
UV Clean Sanitizing Items: Great Employee Gifts
Phones hold more bacteria and germs than almost any other item that we use, and most people keep their phone within a three-foot circle from them almost every minute of the day. Yuck! Good thing there is a way to clean them; Ultraviolet light.
From UV Clean Power Banks to Wireless Chargers that can hold more than just your phone, there are a plethora of items available that use UV lights to sanitize different surfaces and keep harmful germs at bay. It’s a technology that most are familiar with in some capacity, and they’re incredibly easy to use. The best part though is that it gives your employees peace of mind, and lets them know that you care about their safety. It doesn’t matter if they’re working from home, the office, or traveling to and from, they can use this type of product to stay safe no matter where.
Mask Accessories: Incredible, Inexpensive Giveaways
You’ve heard about them. You’ve seen them. You may even be wearing one right now! In 2020, it’s not just superheroes or Halloween pranksters, but most of us are donning masks at some point each day. As an employer, you can make sure you are helping your employees feel safe by giving them a branded mask, though for some the mask has become a fashion statement of sorts, and they likely have already chosen their go-to mask.
Enter the BB Snaps: this handy little product acts as both a branding piece for your company, but also helps hold a mask without having to loop it behind your ears (which, let’s be honest, starts to hurt). They clip onto a hat or other piece of headwear, so a mask can easily loop onto these instead. Not only does it promote your brand, but it helps a pain point your employees might be experiencing in everyday life. They will thank you for it.
There are many ways to recognize your employees, and while it was always important, it has only increased as our world has become more uncertain. People are scared, and if their employer can help quell that fear, even just a little bit, that goes an incredibly long way with their employees. While any recognition is good, the next time you want to show your employees you care, try sending them an item that will actually help them stay safe. You’ll see they will appreciate it quite a bit, and you’ll give them a sense of ease no matter where they are doing their work.
