A valued member of your team has just had a baby, or their partner has. It’s an exciting joyous, stressful, exhausting, life-changing time. Especially with a first child, it’s a time when life priorities change, and work life balance goes to a whole other level.
Often the new babe comes just around that time in people’s career where they are reaching their peak – old enough to be experienced but young enough to inject energy and innovation into your organisation. So as their boss your challenge is retain this most valuable business asset, keep them connected with their career and at the same time be supportive.
Corporate gifting is a brilliant way of fostering long-term trust and loyalty with valued staff. You might also have a valued client or supplier with a newborn. Imagine what a thoughtful gift from you would mean to your long-term working relationship.
Our team at Creative Hampers know all about work life balance. As mums running a business, we know just what’s going to be appreciated by a hard-working parent of a new baby.
But first let’s just check in with the good business reasons to send gift hampers, apart from just being the nice person that you are.
Good employees are thin on the ground in most industries at the moment, so retaining the ones you have is a high priority. Competitive remuneration isn’t enough these days; the best employees are looking for something more. They want to be part of a culture that makes them feel like colleagues are family.
Having a baby is an occasion to be celebrated. Instead of doing so with a simple card, or ignoring it altogether, employers and managers can make use of corporate baby gift hampers to show how much the new parent means to them and how important they know this time in life is.
Once again, having a baby is a big event, so it’s something to be celebrated in its own right. A baby gift hamper is the perfect way to let a colleague or client know that you recognise the importance of this milestone and are thinking of them.
When staff go away on parental leave, they can feel left out of the loop and disengaged from the team back at the office. Take this opportunity to send them something special like a corporate baby gift hamper with an update on all that’s been going back at work. This will go a long way to making them feel special, making them feel like people are still thinking of them. Not only will this make the return to work easier, but they’ll be happy to return to their second ‘family’.
You know of a colleague or client who has gone on parental leave and you want to celebrate it with something special, but – as always – time is not on your side. Fortunately, you have the experience and expertise of the Creative Hampers team to lean on.
We have an extensive range of baby gift hampers which you can easily buy online, plus a whole page dedicated to corporate hampers. But if you need a little help, call us to talk to a real person who’ll get everything organised for you.
