5 Quick Ideas to Recognize and Reward Employees

According to a Maritz Research study, employees who participate in creative recognition programs at work are five times more likely to feel valued, 11 times more likely to feel committed and seven times more likely to stay in their jobs. Here are some great ideas you can try:

1.Verbalize It: Give your employees the thanks and appreciation they deserve by telling them how much you appreciate them verbally. Saying things like "great job" and "outstanding performance" can go a long way to boost productivity, especially if said in front of their peers.

2.Find time to say "Hello" to your employees: Look at your employees while talking to them, not through them when you pass them in the hall. By actually taking time to acknowledge them, ask how things are going and really listen to them will make employees feel more appreciated, and more respected.

3.Do something Unexpected and Fun: Take a Friday afternoon off to take the entire office bowling, or have an unexpected indoor "pool party." Spread sand around, play Caribbean music, spread out beach chairs and give employees logo beach towels and sun visors.

4. Send High Performers Back to School: Recognize key players by offering them in-house training, off-site seminars and college courses, advanced degree programs, certification courses, peer counseling sessions and advanced management training.

5.Use Scrapbooks to make a Retirement Memorable: Everyone can get in on the fun of gathering photos and memories, including customers or association members. Put it all in a large scrapbook and give it to the retiree or outgoing association President at a celebratory event as a special memento. Get creative and add captions and colorful paper.

Custom Logo Printed Promotional First Aid Kits

And why they will help your customers remember you…

The most notable benefits of using Custom First Aid Kits to promote your business or organization are increased brand awareness, since quality first aid kits are kept longer than other promotional items and are often refilled and kept for continued use. Another benefit is the positive association of your company with the recipient, as first aid kits are associated with health and safety. 

Imprinted first aid kits come in all price ranges to fit almost every budget and they come in multiple styles and themes for client sector alignment such as outdoors kits, golf, sports, tradeshow, and automobile themed kits.

One of the most common promotional first aid kit styles is the General Purpose Promotional First Aid Kit, which can be decorated with your company logo or organization’s message. These kits usually contain items such as an ice pack, rubber gloves, 3×3 sterile gauze, bandage strips,  first aid burn cream,  alcohol wipes,  antiseptic wipes,  wet ones antibacterial wipes, tweezers and a first aid quick reference card. Depending on your budget, you can use the brand name version of many of these items, or go generic. You also can customize what goes in to each kit, allowing you to manage the cost of your custom kit.

Some other promotional first aid kit styles are travel first aid kits, automotive, and golf  – which can include not only first aid items, but divot tools and tees, convention and tradeshow first aid kits, kits for disaster preparedness and cold weather promotional first aid kits.

So if you’re planning a special fundraiser, promotion, event, or giveaway and want to keep your business name and message in front of your customer year-round, a promotional first aid kit is the answer.
