If one thing is for certain in an otherwise uncertain year, the typical workplace environment has shifted as we know it. Most of the world is now working remote, and with over 70% of the workforce anticipated to be remote by 2025, it looks like work from home life is here to stay. It’s not without good reason – there’s a lot of perks to working from home. Gallup reports working remotely increases employee productivity, engagement, and satisfaction.
But there’s one obvious downfall to remote work: the lack of human connection. No longer can you go grab a coffee with a coworker or head out to lunch. In fact, “how to avoid loneliness when working from home” has popped up as a new frequently searched term. In combination with social distancing, your connection to your coworkers is more important than ever. Remember you spend more time with them than most people in your life.
Good news, helping you connect with those who matter most is kinda our jam. We know you’re a busy professional, so we’ve made it EASY and FUN for you to reach out to those you work alongside. In a matter of minutes, you can send a gift in the mail to anyone on your remote team. Our pre-built packages make it simpler than ever to show you care (OR you can create something completely personalized from scratch!).
Here are Team Greetabl’s 5 tips to nail remote gifting for your remote coworkers, boss, and team:
Lunch Is On Me!
Pick up the tab for lunch or coffee by sending a gift card to your coworkers or boss. You can always go the e-gift card route, but if you’re looking to make your gift card memorable, consider sending one in a Greetabl gift. Starbucks, Uber Eats, and DoorDash have never felt more personal! After all, Greetabl is the only way to send a gift card when you really care.
Happy Birthday from Afar
When the world was still in-person, paying for lunch or coffee was a quick, easy way to make your coworker feel appreciated on their birthday. Guess what? You can exercise the same amount of effort for a higher for a more personal pay-off. In less than five minutes, you can send your coworker a surprise gift in the mail… no trip to USPS required.

We Make a Great Team
A little extra recognition is always appreciated. Did you nail a project together? Don’t hesitate to send a little something to celebrate your collective wins. Did someone go the extra mile for you to get a project across the finish line? Never expected but always welcome, send a little note of thanks. Nothing says “I love working with you” like chocolate.
Here’s to You!
Celebrating personal wins of your coworkers is an instant way to feel more connected. Especially when in-person celebrations are currently halted, your teammate will greatly appreciate the extra effort in helping them feel celebrated.
“Pop a bottle” for a new home, engagement, pregnancy, promotion, or any tiny victory you can think of. Cheers!
Sending My Thoughts
If your coworker is going through a tough time, it can be hard to know exactly what to do. Should you say something in a private meeting? Do you not say anything at all?
We have Greetabl gifts well-suited for those who are going through hardship. Say, “I’m thinking of you!” in minutes. If this doesn’t hit the right notes, visit our tough times shop for a little assistance.
