CHICAGO, April 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In light of lockdowns across the U.S., Packed with Purpose, the corporate gifting company with a social mission, today announced the introduction of three new gift boxes that companies and others can use to increase engagement with those working from home during shelter-in-place orders.

As more and more businesses mandate remote work for employees, individuals across the nation are tasked with navigating a new routine that isolates them from their colleagues, clients, and others. Packed with Purpose created these gift boxes to help business leaders engage with their remote workforce in a meaningful and purpose-driven way. Each gift is carefully curated to strengthen personal and professional connections and delight employees and clients as they remain indoors.

“Showing appreciation for your employees and clients is more important now than ever,” said Leeatt Rothschild, founder, and CEO of Packed with Purpose. “Our newest gift boxes are a way for people to create a human connection while they aren’t physically able to.”

In addition to a deck of fully-recyclable Bicycle playing cards, each gift box features premium treats that contribute to positive social change:

  • Packed with Purpose’s new Brighten Their Day At Home gift box includes an all-ages National Parks coloring book along with a set of colored pencils, from The Sierra Club, an environmental organization that supports the conservation of natural resources. This gift also contains family-sized treats like sweet and salty chocolate covered pretzel twists from Lambs Farm, an organization that provides vocational and life-skill training programs to individuals with developmental disabilities.
  • The new Family Game Night gift box includes handmade granola from Together We Bake, an organization that supports women’s empowerment in underserved communities neighboring Washington, D.C., organic tea-infused energy snacks from TeaSquares, which fuels economic growth and employment in urban communities in Chicago, handcrafted teas from Tea Spot, which contributes to cancer wellness programs, and more.
  • The WFH Care Package contains cold brew chocolate coffee bites from Wild Ophelia, which supports aspiring female food entrepreneurs through culinary education, Fair Trade chocolate espresso-infused brownies from Salt of the Earth, a company that supports environmental preservation, and more.

Studies show that employees want to work for companies that have a conscience. A large-scale survey by Deloitte last year showed that Millennials, the largest generation in today’s workforce, feel that too many businesses focus on their own agendas instead of on the consequences for society at large.

“With workers feeling increasingly isolated due to changes wrought by COVID-19, it’s crucial to reach out to your employees and clients,” said Rothschild. “These gifts were designed not just to show that you care about your employees, coworkers, and clients, but about what’s happening in the world,” said Rothschild. “They create an impact on a personal and societal level.”

The gift boxes allow senders the opportunity to add their logo and branding, as well as the ability to add a personalized message for recipients.
