Are you looking for the perfect corporate gift that will encourage and support your employees health? You've come to the right place!

We're passionate about putting people first which is why we have the ultimate collection of thoughtful gifts that will help improve wellbeing and promote wellness for your team. But before we get into it, let's have a quick refresher on employee wellbeing.

What is Employee Wellbeing?

When we look at wellbeing, we look at the different factors that can contribute to our overall state of mind. So, this can include our happiness, but it also looks at how we feel on a day-to-day basis. Wellbeing covers how satisfied we feel with our lives and how we function. Looking at wellbeing is a much better way of supporting people because it looks at the bigger picture.

Employee wellbeing is focused on looking at employee health and wellness and looking at how someone’s job can impact their overall health and happiness. This means taking on a more holistic approach, and figuring out the physical, social, psychological and environmental factors that could be influencing workplace wellbeing.

A recent study found that happy employees were 13% more productive but unfortunately it still seems like a lot of companies still haven’t grasped that successful employee wellbeing programs are the key to a successful business.

If you needed any more convincing to invest more time into employee wellbeing and mental health, here’s a list of 5 reasons that might change your mind from a recent report from Nuffield Health:

1.  Organisations are 2.5 times more likely to be in the best performer list

2.  Employees will be 8 times more likely to engage

3.  Organisations are 3.5 times more likely to be creative

4.  The organisation is 4 times less likely to lose talent annually

5.  When reviewing 55 Wellness programs, it was found that there was an 82% reduction of sickness and a 33% reduced staff turnover

When starting to think about wellbeing initiatives that could boost employee engagement and help overall business performance, you might consider looking into gift giving. Gifting is still understood as being a crucial part of maintaining and strengthening relationships with those around us. Receiving a gift makes gives us that fantastic warm fuzzy feeling of being appreciated and can make us feel happier and more bonded to one another.

Let’s begin by reminding ourselves why gifting is important within the workplace with these three reminders:

Gifting is a great way to show your employees that you value them.

Employees respond to appreciation that comes when their hard work and dedication is recognised. You want to be known as a company that really cares about the wellbeing of your staff and sending them an employee appreciation gift that’s guaranteed to put a smile on their face will reinforce that positive relationship.

It will help you stand out against competitors.

When your employees receive their employee appreciation gifts, it will remind them why you’re a great company to work for and boost engagement amongst your team. Awarded their work with a Christmas gift or a gift throughout the year could result in them sharing and praising the company online and in person to potential employees.

Gifting can help improve overall company culture.

This small gesture can have big benefits for the whole company and boost employee morale. Employee appreciation gifts can help boost morale. Having an employer go the extra mile can really ease any concerns or worries your employees might have, helping them feel connected to the organisation.

But where should you even start looking for corporate gift ideas that will help encourage and support employee’s health and mental wellbeing?
