How you can unite your team who are working remotely with sustainable gift boxes with interactive packaging

Our research has shown that when employees receive gifts they want to receive an employee gift box as this allows them to enjoy lots of different food and drink snacks and makes them feel appreciated. 69% of employees say they will work harder if they feel appreciated. However, it is also important to employees that the gift reflects their values and does not feel like a marketing strategy. Too many corporates have sent gift boxes filled with branded merchandise including stress balls and pens, which often just go to waste and do not have the desired effect of making the staff feel appreciated.

 That is why we have created the most exciting gift to give and receive at Social Stories Club. We have created sustainable gift boxes with interactive packaging.

The interactive packaging tells a sustainable story by engaging the consumer. It allows consumers to interact with the product and learn more about it. Interactive packaging can help to reduce waste by helping receivers to reuse the packaging as part of a fun game.

Why do employees want to receive an employee gift box?

Our research has shown workers would love to receive an employee gift box when they are given a corporate gift. This is because they want a gift they can enjoy the contents and it makes them feel appreciated. They appreciate receiving a gift that shows that their manager cares about them and their well-being. Not only can this be a good morale boost, but it can also help build trust between an employer and employee. Sending an employee gift box can be as simple as sending a small box of snacks for the employee to enjoy while working from home but employers are looking to stand out with their gift-giving. The key is to make sure that the gift makes sense for your company's culture and reflects the values of your company. Opting for sustainable corporate gift boxes with interesting social stories is a great choice and a team favourite. If you are unsure of how to give an employee a gift, do not hesitate to ask!

Why your employee gift box should have interactive packaging

What is interactive packaging? It can be as simple as using QR codes, offering reusable packaging, or a game or challenge embedded into the packaging. If you are looking for an interactive activity or gift to engage teams at the same time as demonstrating employee appreciation we have the perfect employee gift box for you. If a company wants an unusual corporate gift they can gift their employees a corporate gift hamper with an experience, one that is different from what they are used to. One option is a sustainable corporate gift box with interactive packaging. It is a way to engage with your team to come together, create a lasting connection, and learn about the values of the company. Interactive gifts are fun and can encourage healthy competition. There are a lot of benefits to interactive packaging, including its ability to engage your team, and bring everyone together to start fun conversations. Interactive packaging with your sustainable gift boxes can help your business stand out by giving it an “experience” factor. Another thing to keep in mind is cost savings; interactive packaging can be an added experience bonus that you will not have to pay extra for.
