Swags are amazing gifts, not just from the employee’s perspective but also for the employers. They also work as a wonderful marketing tool for organizations. But did you know that they can also fail as gifts if not chosen rightly? Why would you want to spend hundreds of dollars in buying swags if your recipients are only going to hide them away in their attics and never use them?
Did you know the term ‘SWAG’ is an abbreviation of “Stuff We All Get?” Here, the point to note is G stands for ‘get’, not ‘use!’ Do you wish to know how you can turn your typical company SWAG into SWAU or Stuff We All Use? Let’s find out.
Why Choosing SWAGs That Your Employees Want is Crucial?
Take the example of a typical employee gift, say a printer! You decide to give your employees a printer as swag. It sounds like a thoughtful gift, considering most of them are working from home, and they may need a printer to print out reports or drafts. So, you spend much time, effort, and money in customizing the printers and couriering them to your employees. You think they will be excited to receive the gift, but the feedback baffles you.
Only one or two of your employees appreciated the swag, but others did not need it at all! Some did not have space for a printer, or some already had one. Such a waste of resources, isn’t it?
If you had chosen a gift that your employee REALLY wanted or even had a way of finding out who needed a printer and who did not, swags could be more relevant. That can happen only if you had insights into your employee’s lives. Maybe, a few of them would have liked a phone printer! Asking them directly or indirectly through HR staff may not work as the process will sound cumbersome and too probing.
What if you had access to a foolproof system of choosing swags?
Neither you nor your employees will have to be in awkward situations probing or explaining personal likes and dislikes.
You won’t have to worry about packaging, logistics, or delivery.
Well, it is possible!
Through Artificial Intelligence and an automated gifting process, you can choose swags or ‘SWAUs’ that your employees have long wished for. Or something that they can use daily such as exotic coffee, great wines, wellness items, pet accessories or food, games for children, chocolates, etc. Imagine how thrilled they will be when they get swag from you that they had wanted for a long time!
