According to studies, workers who feel valued early on in their employment tend to stay longer and are more loyal to their company. What better way to show appreciation for new employees than to give them a gift set upon their hire? Just as sending gifts to a client strengthens the relationship, gifting employees gives them the incentive to work harder and help the business grow.
For basic gift sets, the most essential item is a Welcome card. This card should congratulate the person on the new job, briefly explain the company's goals and how the new employee fits into those plans. Employers might include a retail or restaurant gift card and stationary with the new employee's name and the business' name on it. Pens with the company's logo and a motivational message (ie. "You Got This!") also make good gifts.
If employers want to add more to the gift sets, they should consider the following:
When sending a gift set, it helps to have the items match the new worker's job functions. For example, an employee who spends most of the time at an office or home desk should receive items such as screen wipes for smartphones, flash drives, and wireless headsets. If an employee needs to travel often, branded drawstring bags, laptop cases, and tumblers are good ideas.

Easter is a special holiday when people give gifts to family, but they can gift to employees or clients too. The right gifts help make Easter celebrations more fun and show the recipient that they're appreciated, and in some cases, a respect for their beliefs.
St. Patrick's Day is a fun holiday where people can drink Guinness beer, wear plenty of green and celebrate all things Irish. Business owners can help their employees or special clients can make St. Patrick's Day even more fun with gifts ranging from clothing to decorative items.
Employee Appreciation Day is a perfect opportunity for employers to thank their workers for all their hard work. Rewarding them with gifts and incentives help boost company morale and encourage employees to work harder.
