To get straight to the point: after the Second World War, a care package was a food package for the needy in emergencies . Fortunately, the current situation of your teams and employees cannot be compared to this. What has remained the same, however, is the idea of the care package: food still belongs in a good care package today.
What is a care package?
Who would have thought? Even back then, chocolate was a natural part of the care package. We therefore find it obvious to focus the content of the home office gift on this even today. Despite everything, you should of course think above all about what your team members or colleagues would be happy about. Did you perhaps have a favorite snack in the office? Then of course this should not be missing in the care package! Could there be intolerances, are there many vegans or potentially pregnant women in the team? Then we would be back to the chocolate, ;-) because: compared to many other foods, really good dark chocolate is vegan, alcohol-free and consists of only a few ingredients. So a chocolate box with dark chocolate is not only incredibly delicious, but also a good, inclusive gift!
What is included in the care package for colleagues?
Chocolate Care: the real (chocolaty) deal!
As already mentioned, chocolate is a basic ingredient in every care package. And from our point of view, the care package doesn't need much more ;-). Whether it's a chocolate tasting box , a small present with a chocolate gift box or chocolate in a different condition, for example as cocoa beans , cocoa nibs or as a Kumasi cocoa fruit spritzer . There are no limits to creativity when putting together a really good home office gift. And so it is not surprising that SAP approached us to put together a really nice package! All project team members were surprised with a small box of cocoa beans and kumasi in the home office! This makes working from home twice as fun. The boxes were then opened in a joint virtual event and the delicacies were tasted together.
Why is the home office gift a good idea, especially now?Whether it's an exciting start-up phase, a medium-sized company or a long-established organization: the challenges of the past and upcoming months have demanded a lot from all employees! While working from home has its perks, it has mostly created new hurdles for most. From childcare to non-existent workrooms to using your own devices. One thing is certain: employees had to do a great deal and often even contribute their own resources in order to be able to work from home at all.
That's why it's more important than ever to say thank you to your colleagues! And from our point of view, a well-filled care package as a home office gift is the ideal way to say thank you. Last but not least, care packages for employees not only ensure a good mood and motivation! Studies show that positive feedback can contribute in particular to increasing employee motivation. And what better way to express positive feedback than with chocolate ;-) ?
