With the COVID-19 pandemic and the push to flatten the curve to reduce the spread of the virus many companies and businesses are implementing work from home policies for employees and staff. Making this transition as easy possible while maintaining a connection is important.
Work from home kits are a great way to provide employees with tools they need to be productive, yet also still feel like they are part of a team and still connected to the company and their colleagues.
Not everyone already has a home office set up. Selecting items that will make working remotely or from home an easy transition for everyone is the first step. Notebooks and pens are a logical first step. These fun desk in a box kits come prefilled with a variety of useful items that most people don’t have lying around at home. Mouse pads that serve a dual purpose, such as notepad or wireless qi charger, along with a wireless mouse and multi port usb hub could round the kit. Bluetooth speakers that can be used for conference calls (or to help drown out household noise) or bluetooth earbuds and headphones help cut down on distractions and make communicating with team members or clients easier. As they may be spending more time in front of a computer, blue blocker glasses will help relieve eye strain.
Functional items are important, but so is a little fun and creativity to help lighten the mood. How about a fun hat or shirt imprinted with “this is my work from home uniform”? Stress balls and squeeze toys, travel mugs (we can help you personalize those with each individuals name, making it easier to keep up with when they return to work), pedometers to encourage everyone to get outside or to make sure they are getting some exercise each day or something aromatherapy inspired to help ease this stressful situation.
Once you have all your items selected, let’s look at how to package and deliver everything.
Packing all items into a bag is a practical way to deliver the gifts. If employees don’t have a dedicated office space, this offers them a solution to move everything from the kitchen table or living room in the evening to keep all their work safe and in one place. Then when they “commute” back to work in the morning everything is right there in the bag. We can even personalize bags with their name so when they do return to the office they know which bag is theirs. Personalization is available on select bags such as the duffel bag below. Let us know if you would like to see other bags that are available with individual names.
Another option is printed boxes that can be mailed or shipped directly to each employee. Depending on the items selected, we can insert foam into the box to securely hold items or use other packaging as needed. Already have some swag in your office you would like to include? We can do that as well.
We can kit your items and drop ship directly to each employee so you don’t have to distribute them or have employees come back to the office to pick them up.
