Reignite Their Spark: 15 Gift Ideas for Your Remote Workforce
Feeling the need to connect and create a renewed spark with your remote workers? Now that we’re in the mode of working outside the office, our momentum has lost some steam and tech fatigue is on the rise.
A CNBC article reports that about 69 percent of remote workers are experiencing symptoms of burnout, and that’s only bound to increase as the pandemic drags on.
Right now, your best bet is to think about ways to help your employees reignite their passion for their jobs. One quick way to do that is to send an uplifting gift right to their doorstep. And we have some prime options for you (list soon to follow, so keep reading)!
Inspire Them to be Their Best
When the shutdown happened, we all put on our hardhats and continued working with the vigor of building a skyscraper overnight. We improvised, syncretized, and sanitized.
The nation’s workforce suddenly became a remote workforce, donning dress shirts and pajama pants and transforming their kitchens into home offices.
In short, we simply refused to let anything stop us from getting the job done.
But after months and months of online meetings, homeschooling and non-stop handwashing, your staff is plain old tired out.
That’s why re-inspiring them with a surprise gift of appreciation will bring a renewed sense of purpose and inspire them to be their best again. Your team has never deserved kudos more than now!
