The first day of a new job can be a nerve-racking experience. You only have one chance to make a good first impression. This goes for the new hire – and now more than ever – also the organization.
Employee welcome kits are not only practical, they create a golden opportunity to make a lasting first impression and build a relationship with your new hires. Employee appreciation is crucial in creating and maintaining a good company culture and reducing employee turnover. Welcome kits can take many shapes and forms, ranging from practical to fun. No matter what you are looking for, we can customize your welcome kit to fit your company’s culture and values.
Take a look at some popular welcome products and examples below:
First day essentials:
Practical and office related items are the perfect way to set your new hires up with everything they will need for this new chapter in their lives. Popular practical employee welcome products include pens, notebooks, water bottles, stickers, and bags.
Tech for everyday life:
In a technology dependent workplace many employees spend their days glued to their phones and computers. Welcome your new hires with products that will complement their daily lives. Products such as power banks, headphones, speakers, mousepads, phone stands and cleaning cloths are all trendy and functional tech related items to add to a welcome kit.
Including apparel in your welcome kits not only gives your new hires some cool and comfy new clothes they can show off, but it is also an easy way to get your name out. Customized t-shirts, sweaters and hoodies, hats and jackets are all great options to include in your welcome kit.
Working from home:
Even if your employees are working away from the office, welcoming them with a welcome kit is a great way for them to feel apart of the company culture. Including items such as blankets, mugs, plants and office supplies are all ways to spruce up your home office to add a touch of your company to your home.
