With the third lockdown in full swing and more employees working remotely than ever before, it has become essential for employers to take a step back and focus on their employees mental health and well-being.
As we all know when morale is high in the workplace, it feels like there’s nothing you and your team can’t accomplish. However, when morale is low, everything takes a hit. Many workers are feeling uncertain about the future right now. Employees have suddenly had to navigate a new way of working whilst also dealing with personal demands; it’s no surprise they’re finding it harder to engage, enjoy and look forward to work.
For managers or business owners, improving staff morale can seem a daunting and near impossible task, especially if you’re managing a team remotely. Here at Vinny, we have realised that every worried and down employee deserves a bit of sunshine in their lives and that is why we’re here to help. We’ve compiled a list of three occasions where a Vinny Box might be exactly what’s needed to cheer you and your team up!
- Work From Home Care Packages:
While we know working from home can be tough, some are finding it harder than others to stay positive about their day-to-day work life. If your team is struggling, now is the perfect time to send them a WFH Vinny Care Package. You can choose 10 of your favourite treats and have them delivered to each member of your team. There’s even an option to add a message and tell them that you’re thinking of them.
- Rewards and Recognition:
What says ‘Well done, you’re doing great’ more than delicious and thoughtful Vinny Snack Boxes? Companies who engage in strong rewards and recognition programmes often reap benefits such as increased productivity, lower job turnover, and greater returns on investment than other companies in the same industries. A lot of the time, cash and monetary rewards only go so far as they are often spent on necessities like rent and groceries and employees are less likely to talk about cash bonuses than they are a thoughtful gift from their employers. That’s why giving a personalised gift can increase motivation and proves more memorable and emotionally satisfying.
- Events and Virtual Conferences:
In the age of online conferences and working from home, employers can find it increasingly difficult to inspire the same amount of excitement and enjoyment at conferences across a screen. Keeping motivation up and getting your team to enjoy an experience collectively can be as simple as sending out 5 delicious vegan snacks in our LetterBox style snack boxes. Not only does this allow your team to connect together but it also instills a sense of excitement for virtual work gatherings.
Whatever the case, it’s always nice to show your employees that you care and appreciate the hard work they are putting in throughout this Pandemic. Let us help you put a Vinny Smile on your team’s face!
