Recognizing Employees with Promotional Items

One of the greatest assets a company has is its hardworking employees. And a business that doesn’t recognize its dedicated staff members risks losing them. Here at Motivators, we’re constantly being spoiled with free lunches, awesome samples, custom birthday cards and parties, and plaques honoring special achievements. How can you make your staff feel special? Recognizing employees with promotional items is one way. Here are a few types of products that stand out:


One of the best recognition items you can give to your staff members is custom apparel. Never mind the fact that they’ll love receiving something for free, they can wear it all the time and show off your brand wherever they go. Sweatshirts, t-shirts, and polos are hot items to give away. This winter, the Motivators crew actually received really nice wind breaker jackets that I cannot wait to wear once the weather gets a little warmer.

Awards & Plaques

Customized awards and plaques are ideal for more formal events. Most companies use them to show appreciation for major milestones, like 25 years of service. Plaques also great for recognizing employees who have just received a promotion. It just makes the accomplishment that much sweeter.


Bags are one of our top selling promotional products! You can never have too many bags. Whether you choose to give your staff members tote bags or lunch bags, they’re sure to appreciate it and feel appreciated at the same time. Plus, every time they use their new bags, your branding will receive exposure.

Your staffers will love receiving custom drinkware! My favorite item is our companion vacuum travel tumbler. I use this mug every day and absolutely love it because it keeps my tea hot for up to 10 hours. Amazing! According to Advertising Specialty Institute, more women own and use branded drinkware than men, so keep that in mind.
