Promotional products are a critical component of corporate marketing, employee moral, and client retention. Overall, the market is seeing a shift from low priced giveaways (famously known as Chachkies), to premium high value gifts that end users will keep and use consistently. Environmentally responsible products have contributed to that higher value considerably, and more importantly the perceived value.
We work with the world’s most coveted suppliers who have corporate, environment, and social responsibility at the forefront. Our network of suppliers leverages critical standards to maintain and enforce compliance.
“By working closely with our suppliers, we have been able to improve their social compliance standards to the point that our Top 100 vendors (which represent 80% of our overall business) rank at an orange level or higher, meaning there are no high-risk nonconformities on site. We continue to work with those vendors for ongoing improvements, and have now extended our focus to reach the next 50 vendors”

Businesses can show their support for proper health maintenance by gifting employees and clients health and fitness products throughout the year. These products let the recipients know their bosses care about their wellbeing and it makes for an effective marketing strategy with companies placing their logos on the products.
The best way for companies to show appreciation for their new employees is 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 want the business to succeed.
