Promotional-Products-Turned-Contest-Gifts Improve Employee Morale and Increase Productivity at Pelican Products

Challenge: How to reward employees for a job well done—beyond the typical “employee of the month” awards
Pelican Products, a firm specializing in watertight protective cases, knows that a happy employee is a productive employee. And that’s why they instituted an internal contest by which factory workers win points and earn prizes for maintaining certain levels of productivity, enforcing safety procedures and meeting other criteria. But the Pelican staff didn’t want to give hum-drum certificates or “employee of the month” awards; they wanted appealing rewards that would make working for Pelican more enjoyable and fun.
Solution: Select hearty, useful outdoor-type products employees want to win
The Pelican team contacted ePromos for help with its rewards strategy, and to help them select the right types of convenient yet functional products for use in their contest rewards program. Because many of Pelican’s factories draw employees from small towns, we focused on products that would appeal to hearty blue-collar sensibilities: folding chairs, barbeque gift sets, coolers, urban survival kits and portable grills were just a few of the products that ultimately made the list.
Result: Morale and productivity, up; boredom and monotony, down!
Since instituting its now-quarterly contest, Pelican reports decreases in both its workers compensation and employee turnover. Employees enjoy participating each month; the program helps strengthen bonds between employees and employer while breaking up the monotony typical of factory jobs. Pelican management is pleased with the program and its results—and the proof is that the program continues today and that Pelican continues to choose ePromos for their employee rewards and promotional products.
