How To Build The Perfect Onboarding Pack In 2023.

Onboarding new employees is an important part of the hiring process which is why making a great first impression is so important. Over the past number of years, we have seen an ongoing trend arise among new hires receiving generous welcome packs upon their arrival to a new company. This has now become a corporate tradition and allows new employees to get a general sense of the vibe at their new workplace. It also ensures they feel appreciated and welcome from day one.

Connect Promotions supplies promotional merchandise to companies and businesses from all types of industries all over the country and our expert team have collected a list of top products they see as the most popular with our customers over the last number of years. 


1. Water Bottles 

Water bottles are an essential desktop item in the workplace and the perfect item for company branding and personalisation. Almost all companies who have purchased onboarding merchandise or built a New Hire Kit have included a water bottle. Whether you are looking to give your new team a stainless steel bottle or looking for the best sustainable options, our expert team will be able to help you find what you are looking for by asking a few quick questions.

2. Jackets & Hoodies

Branded jackets and hoodies are a staple in any onboarding pack. Choosing a premium quality piece of clothing to gift new employees really is a great way to make them feel like part of the team. Not only will the jacket or hoodie keep them warm on those colder days, but it will also allow you to strengthen your company brand by adding your logo and even the employee’s name.
