2021 brings renewed optimism, life changes and permanent remote work. Even pre-Covid, corporations allowed a growing number of professionals to successfully work from home. Among performance-based remote work statistics in 2020, “94% of surveyed employers reported that company productivity has been the same (67%) or higher (27%)”, according to CNBC.
Remote work is here to stay. Company leaders must take careful consideration to keep workers dialed in to workplace culture. Employers must engage teams thoughtfully, with a certain magnetism that eliminates Zoom fatigue, boredom, distractions and disconnection.
Neon Collective is a promotional products and company store solutions agency, taking gifting to the next level. The Las Vegas agency, founded in 2019 by Shari Hoffman, helps employers, HR professionals and procurement teams attract and retain talent by showing appreciation with branded merchandise and awards.
“Complimentary, personal consultation and brainstorming sessions are the norm, which is why we work as a collective”, Hoffman explains.
Gifting may be tied to performance, participation or peer feedback and should be inclusive. Give all employees the opportunity to win a variety of gifts during a challenging sales cycle or to celebrate a collective win.
Incentives like a custom logo water bottle paired with a gift card to their local sandwich shop are always a hit! The branded bottle stays with the employee, sits on their desk, rides in their car, and serves as a walking billboard for a company logo or message.
Hoffman explains, “We kit the gift card and bottle and drop ship to each recipient, saving your team time and putting our expertise to work. We carefully project manage your gifting from the sourcing stage, into proofing and production and on through to flawless delivery.”
Another trending gift idea is a branded virtual event kit, consisting of a branded box with a company logo or message. Inside the box is a custom curation of branded gifts, like speakers, headphones, phone chargers, t-shirts, hats, socks, pens and notebooks.
Some companies order kits for teams to open together on Zoom. Others send kits to prepare employees for upcoming virtual meetings. The act of opening a kit elevates the experience and invokes a feeling of inclusion and connection for the participant. Neon Collective partners with clients to curate the perfect kit according to budget, audience and message.
“We are shipping thousands of event kits, worldwide, with much success and excitement,” says Hoffman. “We collectively curate products with our clients to convey a message and themed items, cultivating the perfect selection”.
Nothing says company loyalty and pride like apparel. Branded polo shirts, jackets, hoodies, cardigans, t-shirts and even shoes get teams pumped up! Recipients wear the apparel even when they leave their desks, creating ongoing advertising for their company. Add a tagline for a fun, engaging wearable that will receive thousands of visual impressions.
2020 changed business. In 2021, in-person events may resume at former capacity, with a possible upswing in virtual events. No matter how teams gather, it will be crucial to build a corporate community with appreciation, highlighting a brand message. Whether it is apparel or a custom gift, Neon Collective is ready to exceed expectations for all things branded.
