      Top Takeaways:

  • From an employee’s onboarding to celebrating work anniversaries, birthdays, and promotions, a meaningful gift is a great way to create morale.
  • Now that the workplace has undergone a migration where employees have gone partially or fully remote, it has become harder to forge relationships. Personalized and timely gifts are an excellent way for employers to show they care for their employees as humans and that they want to invest in their work experience.
  • If you are dealing with a hybrid or fully remote workforce, people become disconnected from your company. However, just because they aren’t there doesn’t mean they want to be disconnected. Something as simple as an inexpensive gift and some company swag can make them feel excited and connected to something bigger.
  • Personalize gifts… When you receive gifts, the ones you will keep are those that resonate with you. It is all about the meaning behind it that creates a personal connection.
  • Employees need to feel connected and supported. Gifting is a great way to deliver moments that matter, build a connection, and support your employees.
  • Plus, Shep shares some of the best corporate gifts that he has received. Tune in!


“In the same way that we use gifts to build relationships for sales, you can use gifts to build relationships within your employees.”

“Every dollar I spend on my people, I get $10 in return. The more I invested in my employees, the better my customer service becomes.”

“Invest in your people. Your customers will feel it, and your business will ultimately feel it in the end.”
