Employee Appreciation This Christmas Season

Employee appreciation this Christmas Season!

Easton Coach Company wanted to show their employees their appreciation over the holiday season. The bus company wanted the best of the best for their bus drivers and asked Proforma to provide gifts that the drivers would find useful.

Proforma developed a creative mix of gifts for Easton to choose from including leather items, coolers, chairs, emergency kits, stainless gifts, watches and barbeque sets. Easton was able to see and feel each of the products before they ordered anything.

Once Easton selected a cooler and aluminum water bottle gift package, Proforma had two weeks to deliver the products so they would arrive in time for the company holiday event. A spec sample was quickly produced and once approved by Easton all of the final products were delivered to the company in just two days!

Associates loved their gifts and Easton’s president was grateful for the extra efforts made by Proforma to deliver the gifts in a short period of time. “Proforma anticipated our needs and provided several very creative ideas we never could have come up with on our own. Our experience with companies that handled our promotional items before Proforma was inconsistent. Now, we feel like we have a true partner,” said Joe Scott, president and CEO of Easton Coach Company. Since the successful holiday gift project Proforma continues to work with Easton on other projects.

One of the most effective ways to build a team is to show that you care. A small gifts, a thank you note, or even “good job” goes a long way at building a successful team.

Employee Incentive Program with Zappos.com

0811_case_main

Zappos.com, an online shoe and apparel shop, wanted to increase participation in their employee incentive program by making their rewards fun and unique. They wanted to purchase non-traditional items at low quantities for its ‘Zollar Store,’ a place where its employees could redeem their ‘Zappos dollars’ for Zappos-branded promotional items.

Employees can earn Zappos dollars for excellent performance, great customer service, impressive effort and community service. After being referred to Proforma, Zappos placed two basic orders to see how the results turned out. Everything went so well, they invited Proforma to present ideas for an upcoming Zollar Store budget.

Proforma identified more than 100 unique options which included samples and shipping. Zappos was impressed and selected products including flasks, banks, garment bags, tumblers with crazy straws, and baseballs, among other items for the store.

Zappos has been impressed with the items provided for the store. A representative from the online shoe and apparel shop said, “Thanks so much for being so on top of it! Proforma wows me on a daily basis.” Zappos has selected Proforma for additional projects based on this program’s success.
