Top 3 Reasons for Corporate Incentives

From seminars to business dinners, personalized ribbon is welcome at any table!

Corporate events have a plethora of purposes and goals. Most companies recognize the need for a regular event for employees and clientele. These events help to promote their brands and provide continued employee loyalty. However, many corporations don’t understand that gifts and incentives contribute to maintaining that commitment.

Incentives provide a way to reinforce the goal of each event you hold. So, why are they so important?

Promote Business Goals

Giving away an object that not only represents your company but is branded with your logo or name, promotes your brand and corporation. And, now it’s free marketing. Giving a gift with personalized ribbons wrapped around it will make it more memorable. This gift now creates a valuable tie to your company. So, make sure to give something that people will want to keep.

Incentives are a great way to express your gratitude and appreciation to anyone who has been a part of your event or team. Employees and guests alike are sure to enjoy their tokens of thankfulness, especially when they are personalized for the recipient. Custom ribbons make this task easy. Simply tie a bow around the object, and you’re sure to get the thank you’s right back.

Marketing and Advertising

Logos and personalization make anything a marketable item! And, they create an immediate connection with those who could be your most loyal employees or customers. These gifts can also entice those who don’t own the personalized gift into purchasing one for themselves. And, with personalized ribbon, they can see the benefit of giving incentives as well.

Incorporating corporate incentives takes work.

Now that you know how important an incentive is, it’s time to get to work! And remember that it isn’t just the item that you are giving away, it is also the packaging. Don’t forget to add the custom ribbon to enhance the look of your gift. They will look great and give an excellent impression of your company.

Another year and what a great way to start it out! Coller Industries is happy to say that we enjoy giving back to our community. And what better way to do that than with a donation of goods. This time around we are highlighting Classical Conversations.

Classical Conversations Logo“At Classical Conversations, we believe that every child is uniquely and wonderfully made. Classical Conversations exists to assist homeschooling parents in educating their children,” said Lynne Roberts, Challenge B Director, with Classical Conversations. “We believe there are three keys to a great education: the classical model of learning, taught within the framework of a Christ-centered worldview, in a supportive community.”

Homeschooling is a journey. Classical Conversations is with you every step of the way from little scribblers to the middle school years all the way through to graduation.

Roberts said, “We believe in cultivating great conversations. Nelson Mandela said, ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.’ Through our challenge programs, we give the students an opportunity to become lifelong learners and lovers of God’s creation.”

Classical Conversations empowers parents to establish local communities in which parents and students meet once a week during the school year. Each community also consists of programs led by a trained parent-director.
