To get straight to the point: after the Second World War, a care package was a food package for those in need in emergency situations . Fortunately, the current situation of your teams and employees certainly cannot be compared to this. What has remained the same, however, is the idea of the care package: even today, a good care package includes food.
What is a care package?
Who would have thought? Chocolate was a natural part of the care package back then. We therefore think it makes sense to focus the content of the home office gift on this today. Despite everything, you should of course think about what your team members, colleagues or employees would be happy about. Did you perhaps have a favorite snack in the office? Then of course this should not be missing from the care package! Could there be intolerances, are there many vegans or potentially pregnant women in the team? Then we would be back to chocolate ;-) because: compared to many other foods, really good dark chocolate is vegan, alcohol-free and only consists of a few ingredients. So a chocolate box with dark chocolates is not only incredibly tasty, but also a good, inclusive gift!
What comes into the care package for colleagues?
Chocolate Care: the real (chocolaty) deal!
As already mentioned, chocolate is a basic ingredient for 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 gift with a chocolate gift box or chocolate in a different state, for example as cocoa beans , cocoa nibs or as a Kumasi cocoa fruit spritzer . There are no limits to creativity when it comes to putting together a really good home office gift. And so it's no surprise that SAP approached us to put together a really nice package with us! All project team members were surprised with a small box of cocoa beans and kumasi in their home office! This makes working from home twice as much fun. The boxes were then opened in a joint virtual event and the delicacies were enjoyed together.
Why is the home office gift a good idea, especially now?Regardless of whether it is an exciting startup phase, a medium-sized company or a long-established organization: the challenges of the last and upcoming months have demanded a lot from all employees! Even though working from home does have its advantages, it has primarily created new hurdles for most people. From childcare to non-existent workspaces to the use of your own devices. One thing is certain: employees had to work extremely hard and often even use their own resources in order to be able to work from home.
That's why it's more important now than ever to thank 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 particularly contribute to increasing employee motivation. And what better way to express positive feedback than with chocolate ;-)?
