How Promotional Gifts Can Help Motivate Your Staff

Within any business it's important to keep your staff motivated and show your appreciation. This can be done through the form of gifts, incentives or cash bonuses. When it comes to gifts we think some of the best are personalised items. Have you considered gifting your employees for work well done?

There are lots of benefits to come from gifting your employees. By giving them presents you are reminding them they are invaluable to your company, as without them your company wouldn't exist. A benefit of this which you may not have considered is that when you gift staff you could also promote your brand or products at the same time. For example, if you sell sports products then you can use custom made sports bottles to motivate your staff. Giving your staff gifts can also prove to be more cost effective than awarding monetary bonuses.

Customisable gifts have long been used as a reward for keeping staff motivated and increasing staff morale, but what kind of promotional gift would you consider to be best for your employees?  Whilst items like branded clothing are great for spreading brand awareness, they aren't often used for increasing morale. Here's our top 5 favourite products for motivating your sales team. 

Tablet Accessories

In an ever increasing technological world, over a third of the UK now own a tablet of some kind. Promotional tablet accessories have become a popular gift over the last few years making these the perfect items to reward staff.

Watch

A watch is a classic gift to give for motivational purposes. It is a classy and sophisticated way to promote your business as well as an item which is guaranteed to be kept for a number of years. 

Drink Accessories

There are a number of different accessories you could give away which would be considered as executive. For example, you could give away champagne glasses which are personal to the company. 

Trophies

Sometimes it's easy to go over the top with your promotional gifts, perhaps you should just gift a simple trophy for the top sales person of the month, or host an awards ceremony at the end of the year. 

Golfing Accessories

Golf may not be the right sport for everyone, but there is always someone that likes golfing so the accessories will always be appreciated.
