Use Promotional Products To Keep Your Employees HappyJuly 7th, 2009
“We are on the verge of an imminent global talent crisis,” warns Christie Gibbons, executive director of Recognition Professionals International (RPI), formerly known as the National Association for Employee Recognition. “In the next 10 years, we will see a glut of people retiring. With this brain trust walking out the door, companies need to know how to retain talent.”
Scary, isn’t it? We’ve all been in situations as young professionals where we wanted to feel appreciated by our higher-ups in more ways than just pay. It’s quite rewarding when others recognize a job well done and show their appreciation. Unfortunately, this concept can be quite foreign to many companies and their management teams.
Creatively rewarding employees with promotional products can contribute to the following:
Increased Effort - People tend to work harder when there’s an incentive on the line. As a result, their effort will increase and productivity will go up. Quality of work is usually much better as well.
Morale Boost - Rewards create a happier employee and workforce. Group rewards can eliminate the friendly competition that occurs if it was just one person on the receiving end.
Company Loyalty - Keeping your employees happy with promotional products will increase your company’s odds of retaining your top employees from leaving for other opportunities where they might feel more appreciated. I think we’ve all heard the same stories about someone leaving a company for another opportunity or to start their own company because they didn’t feel appreciated. Promotional products can prevent that story from happening with your company.
