Having historically worked with our client Kainos on their NI staff Christmas party, we were tasked with creating a Christmas initiative that would still excite, engage & give thanks to the employees over a Covid limiting Christmas. Our client wanted to reward their employees with form of Christmas gift, but with over 1,400 employees across the UK, meeting everyone’s needs and tastes was challenging.
With the cancellation of the usual Christmas parties came the saturation of the Christmas Corporate Gifting market. The choices were endless and rather overwhelming for our client making the decision on behalf of all their employees. We wanted to focus on giving the employee themselves the choice.
Times have been tough for some families this year, and where one member of the team may love a gin hamper or grazing box to tuck into, others may like to put the generous budget towards helping buy their Children Christmas presents or put the Christmas turkey on the table.
Working with our sister company Mammoth, we created two bespoke online platforms for Kainos, one for their team in Ireland & the other for their team in mainland UK. Working to our clients per person budget, we researched and curated bespoke Christmas gifts from a variety of local suppliers and presented these on the site, much like an e-commerce style shopping experience. Gifts ranged from a Christmas dinner package with turkey & all the trimmings, to kids activity bundles, cheese & wine hampers to experience vouchers.
The portal was launched internally, and the team were given one-week to place their order. The Callow Events team processed every individual order, working with our local suppliers as well as curating a range of our own gift offerings, to organise delivery of every item ahead of Christmas.
In just 3 weeks, we delivered over 1,400 gifts to the Kainos team across the UK all whilst supporting many of the local suppliers whose businesses had been closed or effected by the pandemic.
