Business relationships with employees and clients are often built on mutual respect, personal rapport, and effective communication and results. If you want to reward a valuable employee or let clients know that they are appreciated, why not give executive and corporate gifts? Perth individuals and businesses like you can strengthen ties and weave tighter, more effective relationships with the right gift branded with your logo.
Choosing the Right Thing
The holidays are a great time for gift-giving but “just because” times can be equally special. The gift you select should be considered closely to ensure that you are setting the right tone and not inadvertently insulting clients and prospective clients with careless choices. Here are some great tips to help you choose the right executive gift:
1. Your business logo is a good fit for standard promotional gifts but you should use discretion for pricier items. Corporate gifts should be in good taste and great quality, especially for highly valued employees and clients. You want to keep them happy without turning your presentation to them into an advertisement.
2. For exceptionally close relationships, consider the individual’s personal taste, style or interests. If they do not drink, then a personalised wine opening set would likely not be appropriate. However, a discretely logo branded set of binoculars would likely be appreciated by the avid bird watcher.
3. If you are still forging a stronger bond with the intended gift recipient and you want to give them something but are not quite sure what, stick with the safe but tried and true like something for their office like a nice desk set or business card holder.
Keep a file with your valued employee’s or client’s hobbies, interests and likes and dislikes that you cull during the course of conversation in your relationship. These notes can help you later on when you graduate to more intimate, exclusive corporate gifts.
4. Consider your position within the company, the relationship you have with your employee or client, and your budget. You should also consider whether the client would find your choice of gift appropriate (Some clients have stringent gift policies with vendors).
