Architecture Firm Makes Employee Appreciation Top Priority with Promos

Giveaways Corporate Gifts Employee Incentive



CLIENT: City Ideas Architecture & Design

PURPOSE: Employee Appreciation

City Ideas Architecture & Design has a 90% employee retention rate. Their management team credits the high retention percentage in part to their ongoing efforts of showing appreciation to their employees. From doughnut days and company parties to sales incentives and quarterly branded swag drops to each employee – they make appreciation a top priority. They don’t take their quarterly swag drops lightly – messaging is carefully thought out and designed to share a combination of teamwork and pride in what they do.

Architecture requires a lot of measurements which makes a branded notebook the perfect companion for an architect’s desk.

Promoting teamwork with messaging on a bag they can take to and from the office reminds employees that they are all working towards success together.

Every architect needs a promotional pen or two they can use to officially sign off on plans – a gift box of high-quality writing instruments is the perfect addition to this quarterly swag drop.

Early mornings on the jobsite require a customized stainless steel coffee mug that employees could take on the road.


Build Up Your Team with Branded Promotional Items

A satisfied employee is the foundation to every successful company. Companies are always looking for new ways to attract and retain talent. One of the most effective ways of making people stay, apart from a good environment, is by providing them with branded promotional items. Branded promo products are often used as giveaways at company events or distributed to employees during the holidays so they can feel appreciated and valued. These items build up employees’ confidence, create a sense of belonging, and improve their job satisfaction. They can also be used as a token of appreciation for the hard work that they put in or to celebrate a milestone in their career. Promo items can also be used to grow company culture, build a sense of community, and promote the company's values.

Employee retention is a major issue for all organizations. A lot of companies are investing in HR strategies to improve employee satisfaction. One such strategy is the use of branded promotional items. These items give employees something they can take home and show off as an example of the company culture they are part of. They increase employee engagement, morale, and productivity while also making your company more attractive to potential hires. Some examples of products range from customized pens, notebooks, calendars, tumblers, to items as big as T-shirts and jackets. No matter the size of the gift it will always be valued, especially if it is customized.
