tis the season to be jolly! 

fast away, the old year passes (fa la la la, la la la la)

As tiny windows open on advent calendars and the Elf on the Shelf traipses around the house as millions of remote workers have done for much of 2020, thoughts turn to seasonal corporate gifting. This year more than ever companies need to find genuine ways to reach out to their staff and customers and say thank you. Acknowledging the hard work and commitment of staff this year is vital to maintain their ongoing support in 2021. 


A damning survey conducted in early Autumn revealed that a staggering “69% of workers said their employer isn’t offering ways to improve their work life balance or well-being.” * UK businesses clearly have some way to go in 2021 to address the escalating discontent.


send a gift to make them smile, whilst boosting productivity!


“Showing appreciation for your employees is key to building strong relationships,” said Stephanie Henson, managing director of techtimeout. “But staff also need to feel that their concerns are being listened to. We have listened and staff are saying that they want support to manage the demands of a home-based workplace that feels permanently switched on.” 


In 2021, techtimeout will launch several new services designed to help businesses support their remote working staff but for now we are delighted to announce the opening of our new gift shop here.


Our new range of techtimeout gift boxes has been designed to acknowledge employees hard-work whilst providing practical solutions to a tech/life balance.  Gift boxes include tech aids, such as a phone grip and phone sleeping bag, and a mix of wellness items combined into gift boxes, including a packet of seeds and a sachet of hot chocolate, to remind workers that they do need to find a balance.


The letterbox-sized gift boxes also avoid additional stress to the recipient who can simply pick up their surprise gift from the doorstep. Click through to our store for a range of options at different price points. Order before Friday 18th December to claim free delivery on all items.


For corporate gifts and bulk purchases please email info@techtimeout.co.uk and a member of the team will be in touch to chat through requirements.


And as the Christmas carol ends ‘Hail the new, ye lads and lasses (fa la la la, la la la la), here’s to a better 2021!
