New employee receiving gift

Remember when hiring new staff used to be fun?

Post Brexit and pandemic, getting positions filled on time, and within budget now feels like an impossible ask. If you do manage to find that unicorn who isn’t now trying to gazump you into giving them a company Tesla and a 2 day working week 🙄, congratulations.  

Our clients spend a lot of time and money on recruiting a new hire. We help ensure they’re committed, appreciated and feel good about the company they’ll soon be working for with branded Employee Welcome Packs.

Join over 1,000 companies across the UK and EU who trust us to deliver their happiness ❤️

One small gesture, many huge benefits

A lot can change during a new hire’s notice period.

Sending a branded employee starter pack helps you deliver a small moment of delight even before the employment journey has officially started. Create a genuine connection, and ensure all new hires feel like part of the team, even if they work remotely.

Social Capital

Our customers see an instant increase in their Offer to Day 1 ratio and significantly higher NPS scores after onboarding, but there’s a hidden benefit too. Our welcome packs are designed to be shared - both digitally and in real life.

Tagged photos of your gift shared on platforms like LinkedIn or Instagram spreads positive awareness about your company, generating exposure and potential new candidate referrals.

Sharing employee welcome pack

What's the hidden bonus you ask (... or rather, we 'want' you to ask)? You'll increase the odds of getting crucial buy-in from the friends and family of your new hire, who are often the lucky co-recipients of our food and drink gift packages!

Gifts with Purpose

Charitable Donation

A huge part of our mission is to create positive impact and
change in the communities our customers and their recipients live and work.

We believe in creating a system where everyone wins - the company, our customer and the local community.

For every Employee Welcome Pack, we donate a meal to someone sleeping rough in various areas across the UK through our charity partners. We’ll share details of the charity your gift has supported with the recipient.

What’s in a new Employee Welcome Package?

We have a range of packages to suit different budgets and needs, or you can create your own custom package too.

Getting started is easy

You’ll also be able to customise every package with unique dietary and sizing preferences too. When the recipient receives their gift, we'll update the tracking to let you know.

Your branding, our logistics

Brand any of our packages and we’ll take care of customising everything from the outer box through to the products inside.

All packages include 30 minutes of artwork to get you up and running if you don’t have a designer of your own.

Personalise the message

Choose whether you want to include a personalised message in every box, or create standard messages for different types of hire.

Send personalised welcome letters, postcards or custom handbooks to ensure new starters hit the ground running.

Improve your employer reputation

Your employer reputation is everything when most candidates conduct some research on their potential employer before accepting a job offer.

We create gifts that encourage social sharing, sending a clear message that your organisation values its people.

No address? No problem

With remote hires who choose to work nomad style, or new employees that are relocating, getting the right address at the right time can be tricky.

Solve that with Self-Registration Pages and get them to provide their address, dietary and sizing preferences themselves.

Send Locally or Globally

Regardless of where your recipients are in the world, we'll ship there through our established relationships with multiple global logistic partners.

No more tax, customs or import duty worries and you can take advantage of our discounted volume rates.

Request a Call Back

No one ever had the job title chief gifting buyer, so it's likely you've been "donated" this task. Use our gift nerds to brainstorm ideas for your next gifting campaign.

"WellBox made it easy to design and send our branded boxes at a cost that was a fraction of what it would be to do it ourselves.

The boxes helped further our branding in sectors that were important for our growth, but most importantly increased the commitment from the merchants and instantly built trust between our team and theirs."
