Top Gifts for Hybrid Workers.
The idea of a hybrid employee is not new to the workforce. In fact, it's been around for decades. What is different about this generation of workers, though, is that they are more educated and skilled than previous generations. They're also less likely to stay in one job or city for their entire careers.
This means employers need to be flexible with what benefits they offer if they want to attract top talent (and keep them). It also means showing appreciation and an understanding of just what hybrid work entails. A thoughtful and relevant gift really can make a lasting impression. And who doesn’t want quality talent around for the longevity of their business’ success? Consider these top-trending gifts below for the hybrid worker:
- Commuter friendly tech (power banks, earphones)
