With added time and responsibilities at home and work for many, burnout rates are at an all-time high across every industry. Whether they are currently working at home or in the office, sending branded tools to help them cope with distractions, stress and burnout can help employees see that your organization recognizes and appreciates what they are dealing with.
How Burnout and Stress are Related to Employee Focus
According to the World Health Organization, “burnout can lead to feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion, increased mental distance from one’s job or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job, and reduced professional efficacy.”
When a brand addresses burnout and offers support, it can help the employees feel motivated again, which can increase productivity and company retention rates. Providing promotional products that help make workspaces seem more organized is a wonderful start.
Journals are great for drawing inspiration, organizing schedules and making plans. Providing journals allows employees to take a productive computer break to avoid feeling drained from constant screen time. Options like the Journal with Antimicrobial Additive or the Moleskine® Soft Cover Ruled Journal are great for encouraging creativity, organization and self-care both during and after work hours.
Pens are perfect for adding to gifts like journals and planners. Try gifting the Zebra ® Fountain Pen that is great for effortless notetaking, scheduling and more. For executive gifting, try giving pens with specific purposes like the Trio Pen with LED Light and Stylus to encourage productivity on and off-screen.
Creating Distraction-Free Environments
Having a designated space specifically for work can dramatically improve focus. If employees are working in rooms that are supposed to be dedicated to eating, sleeping or relaxing, it can make it hard to truly focus on work-related tasks. Promotional products that help liven up a space with personalization are a great way to make their work-from-home space feel more like an official workspace.
One of the best parts about working at the office for employees is decorating and personalizing their workspace. Bring that magic to their home and try sending employees desk accessories to bring that same personalization with items like the W&P Hydropod plant to freshen the air. Another great option is the Online Meeting Adjustable Vanity Light to brighten their space and have them camera-ready for every meeting.
Tools to Improve Employee Focus
One of the best parts about working from home is the freedom employees have, to be as loud or quiet as they need to focus. Check out some additional customizable tools to help improve employee focus.
