Annual Sales Kickoffs

Invigorate and inspire your workforce at the start of a year or quarter by sending everyone a branded gift ahead of your meetings. Pair a branded item with artisanal snacks and caffeinated drinks to keep the good ideas flowing and goal-setting focused. Consider giving impactful gifts as awards for outstanding contributions. Or, create a teambuilding moment by opening gifts together at a meeting, bringing fun and levity to the moment.

Personal Recognition

Send new parents a thoughtful expression of congratulations during maternity or paternity leave to show your company’s support. Surprise a colleague who feels under the weather with a message of sympathy or encouragement (and, of course, snacks). Packed with Purpose gifts are perfect for celebrating birthdays, marriages, new homes and more! Personal recognition gifts show you value the people who bring so much to your company’s success.

Professional Milestones

Recognize your top performers, tenured employees, or teams that landed that big account by sending an employee thank you gift as impactful as their contributions. Any moment that lifts your brand or shares in your success is an opportune time to acknowledge a job well done.

Employee Appreciation Day

Are you prepared for Employee Appreciation Day? This annual event occurs on the first Friday in March and is an excellent time to express appreciation to your staff. When workers feel valued, they perform their best, feel motivated, and maintain high morale. In fact, businesses that focus on having a culture of recognition are more likely to have higher employee retention and experience higher employee engagement. 

There is no better time to begin implementing ideas for year-round recognition than Employee Appreciation Day. 

Need help picking out the right way to treat  your amazing employees? Consider the You Got This! gift box.  

Encourage your team with this uplifting selection of professional wellness goodies. Entice them to take a break and recharge with a well-balanced selection of their new favorite salty and sweet snacks, like delicious chocolate-chunk granola bars and delightfully crispy pretzels. With the help of an upbeat (and brandable) stress ball, they’ll be motivated to face any obstacles head-on. 

Employee of the Month

Another great way to incentivize your staff is by highlighting an employee of the month. Select an employee that has gone above and beyond in their duties, has shown remarkable growth, or has been steadfast in upholding your company values. Reward them with a shoutout at a company event, extra time off to relax, or a one-of-a-kind gift from Packed with Purpose to show them just how much they mean to the company. It’s a gesture that will make them feel appreciated and happy!

Consider the Above and Beyond  gift basket to provide a stunning, tangible display of gratitude. This winning gift includes a gorgeous assortment of luxury chocolates, salty nibbles, nutritious morsels, coffee, and tea. Plus, this gift comes with another built-in benefit: these items support women and diverse-owned companies, and alleviates homelessness and hunger while giving underresourced women job skills for fulfilling careers.
