If we had a list of the most cumbersome duties that usually fall on HR and marketing departments, ordering, (and therefore also packing and sending) gifts for employees or influencers would be in the top 3. But there’s hope to change it for good. Gifting as a Service completely takes it off the hands of these teams. Using this solution, companies can outsource the entire production, packaging, and gift delivery process.
The Gifting as a Service (GaaS) model is becoming an increasingly important element of corporate strategies for employee retention, business relations, or brand promotion. What is it actually about?
On a mission to save HR, marketing, and even B2B sales teams
The past decade has been revolutionary in terms of human relations. Thanks to the increasing automation of processes such as onboarding, salaries, or even recruitment, HR departments can focus more on the most human aspects of the organization. Increasing competition between employers also played an important role.
Due to these changes, taking care of a good atmosphere and team spirit has become one of the most critical tasks of HR teams. Gifts for the team or the so-called welcome packs for new employees are now a standard, but also a big problem due to the time that must be spent on the entire process of ordering and delivering them.
The situation is similar in the case of the sales and marketing departments. Gifts are a great way to maintain good relationships with customers or influencers, but finding time to carry out such a project is a considerable challenge. Every team that has tried to figure out, design, order, pack, and send gifts to 50+ people knows this 😉
How does Gifting as a Service work?
The purpose of the service is to remove all burdensome and time-consuming gift-related responsibilities from the company’s internal teams. What exactly do these responsibilities and costs include?
So what’s left there to do on your side as a company that wants to send gifts?
Not much :). The most important thing is to decide what products to choose precisely and how to brand them. However, we also help in the design process, even with specific requirements, as in the case of sweatshirts for North.pl. You can read a story about the project here.
This is the step-by-step process:
- You decide on the selected products and packaging, and we create free visualizations for them.
- You set the size of the order and the configuration in the case of packages with more than one product.
- Manufacturing stage.
- You receive an order form and a sheet with the inventory.
- You order and deliver company merch whenever you want!
