Employee Appreciation Day is on Oct. 14, 2021. If your department is hosting a booth at EAD, University Print & Mail Services can supply you with branded promo items.
How to pick promo items
Instead of giving your esteemed colleagues and hardworking employees the same old swag every other booth is giving out, why not give them something they actually want?
Here are three tips for picking the right promotional item that will actually get used.
1. Is it practical?
Think to yourself, “What can employees use on a daily basis at work and at home?” Have you thought about choosing swag that employees’ families can use?
2. Don’t personalize or genderize it
It would be nice to hand-select the perfect gift for every U employee—but let’s be honest, that’s not realistic or affordable. A good rule is to avoid gender-specific gifts and instead choose lifestyle gifts that all genders can use.
3. Promote your department outside of work
People are proud to work at the U. It’s no surprise that Forbes ranked the University of Utah as the No. 1 best employer in the state of Utah. Employees want to show their pride! A good tip for choosing swag is to pick something employees will be proud to wear or use even outside of work.
