The idea of remote work has got a sizable success recently. The latest report by limeade says that almost 100% of former onsite employees have second thoughts about returning to work. So, the workforce is loving it. The industry-wide emotions are no different as well. As many as 30 top MNCs are already switching to long-run remote work. The likes of Amazon, Adobe, Facebook, and Ford motors are on the list.
When companies offer flexibility to work from home, they also expect stretched work hours, leading to potential burnout among employees. Then, the question begs here, how can employers strike the right balance between productivity and flexibility? One way to answer that is the age-old practice of showing empathy and care towards employees. Getting gifts for remote employees offers you the best chance to boost their morale.
Eight Perfect Gift for Remote Employees To Do Remote Job Easier
In one employee satisfaction survey, about 45% of employees said they feel valued when their company appreciates their work with gifts.
This festive season, Oakter presents a fantastic portfolio of innovative electronics as corporate gift offerings, which significantly align with the needs of remote employees. So, let’s have a look at these unique products, some standalone, some bundled, and their useability.
1. MiniUPS – A Portable Wifi Power Backup Solution
Nothing hampers productivity like a fluctuating internet connection. When a Wifi router is directly connected to an electric supply, it completes a cycle with every fluctuation. It disconnects, connects when electricity restores and takes up to a minute to regain internet connectivity.
Oakter MiniUPS is a unique, affordable solution to tackle power cuts. The MiniUPS offers power back up to four hours for routers (depending on the device). The device is portable, plug & play, and works with all 12V Wifi routers.
