THEMPC produced giftboxes for new starters for games developer Midoki

Promotional and branding company THEMPC has been managing daily demand for orders of employee onboarding and wellbeing boxes and says they are here to stay. 

Founded by husband and wife team Paul and Emma March, THEMPC has produced bespoke onboarding kits for PepsiCo and recruitment firm Reed, as well as employee wellbeing packs for technology distributor Tech Data.

As a result, the company says demand for the so-called ‘swag’ boxes, has remained high despite a surge in working from home as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

In fact, Emma March says the pandemic saw companies using these boxes more to help them engage with their employees in new ways, and make new recruits feel welcome when working without face-to-face interaction. 

March says: “In every case, creating something that felt special and conveyed a sense of the company’s culture and that they cared about their people was crucial, and contents were always bespoke. 

“We’ve produced boxes with everything from speciality roasted coffee and mugs through to branded fitness and accessories and HIIT workouts printed in the box, and one customer challenged us to create a kit for pancake day.”  

The demand was such that more than half of THEMPC’s revenue during 2020 and 2021, which was the main period of the Covid-19 pandemic, was from onboarding boxes, employee wellbeing and ‘keeping in touch’ packs, and virtual event packs, as a result of working from home.

An example of a company that THEMPC helped to produce a giftbox for new starters for is games developer Midoki. THEMPC helped to produce the box which included a drinks bottle, stationary, and a pirate figurine from one of Midoki’s games. 

THEMPC also produced onboarding kits featuring branded pizza cutters, a chef’s hat, and apron for Italian restaurant chain Prezzo.
