During what has been the most unprecedented of times for businesses attempting to stay afloat during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it has been truly astonishing to see the way that workers around the globe have successfully managed to adapt to an entirely new way of approaching their job roles and work responsibilities, despite having the odds stacked against them.
The changes to the ways in which the majority of people have had to adjust their working schedule and routines due to the effects of lockdown are plentiful; attempting to work from home whilst home-schooling children, keeping up with internal work operations using home-based technology, and keeping in touch with co-workers via seemingly endless Google hangouts, Skype and Zoom meetings – the list truly does go on and on.
Here at hampers.com, the team have witnessed an influx in the number of business owners, MD’s and managers of all kinds purchasing thank you gifts from our site to treat their hard-working members of staff with. These cherished tokens of appreciation go a long way in helping workers to feel respected and valued at a time where so many are feeling the pressure of such economic uncertainty.
