Why Branded Employee Merch is Important

Branded company merch has always been an important part of brand building. Here are three benefits employers should think about:


1) Morale: Unexpected gifts are a great way to boost spirits, especially when times are tough.


2) Loyalty: Letting employees know their work is valued builds loyalty – and loyalty is an incentive to do good work.


3) Brand Impressions: Giving employees branded gifts they’ll use when they’re out and about, like an umbrella, tote or jacket, creates awareness for the employer’s brand.


Top Picks for Employee Gifts:

Gearhartt Softshell Jacket

Skullcandy Indy Evo True Wireless Bluetooth® Earbuds

Recycled Cotton Grocery Tote
