Celebrate Work Anniversaries With Swag
Work anniversaries are a time to celebrate and reflect on another year of hard work and dedication. They're also an opportunity to show your employees how much you value their contributions to the company. For some, this may be a small milestone for a team, while for others, it may be a significant individual achievement or life event. Either way, it's always nice to be recognised for your hard work and appreciated for being a valued individual within a greater group.
But what's the best way to celebrate?
While a simple "thank you" or "congratulations" from their manager or team leader is always appreciated, why not go the extra mile, and give them a little something to show your appreciation? According to a study* in the International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR), rewarding and appreciating employees on particular anniversaries leads to higher levels of motivation and satisfaction and greater levels of performance and productivity. We're not talking about a raise or promotion (although those are always nice, too), we're talking about using swag!
Why Give Swag on Work Anniversaries?
There are several reasons why giving swag on work anniversaries is a good idea. First of all, it's a way to show your employees that you appreciate their hard work. A simple gift can go a long way in making someone feel valued and appreciated. Secondly, swag is often useful, which means employees will actually get some use out of it. And finally, giving swag on anniversaries is a great way to promote company pride and unity. When employees receive gifts that they can use at work and in their personal lives, they'll be reminded of your company every time they use them. This helps create a strong sense of loyalty and allegiance among your workforce.
Types of Swag to Give on Work Anniversaries
There are endless possibilities regarding choosing swag for work anniversaries. To help you get started, here are some popular options:

The Yeti Rambler
When you're looking for an anniversary gift for an employee, drinkware is a winner all the time.

This insulated drinkware will keep your cold drinks cold and your hot drinks hot for longer than standard drinkware, preventing your beverages from losing their temperature or flavour.
