Corporate Gifts Worth a Wow

It’s easy to give perfect corporate gifts that everyone will enjoy.

corporate gifts help to sustain relationships and deepen the personal connection between businesses and clientsShowing appreciation with corporate gifts for your customers, clients and employees doesn’t have to be complicated. And, most importantly, it doesn’t have to be a gift that is mundane. We all have several promotional mugs, t-shirts and other items that we receive as thank you gifts. So, what makes you stand out from your competitors?

Deciding on a product to give can be a difficult choice. And at this time of year, it’s important to start thinking about those corporate gifts. Not only is gift giving one of the best ways to improve office morale and grow and maintain your business, but it has become expected as a way to acknowledge a working relationship.

Corporate gifting is an opportunity to connect with your clients, strengthen employee ties, and share your holiday cheer. Recruiting, retention and business development are three other great reasons to give a gift. But don’t just give a gift because you think someone expects it. Give because you want to maintain these relationships.

What are you giving this year?

While fruit baskets and other homemade treats are enjoyable, why not make it something unique to the receiver? Go with something personalized this year. From custom shaped name tags to executive desk wedges, find and create something that will truly make your employees and clients feel like you care.

Does your vice president have a favorite quote? Make them a unique acrylic desk block that they are sure to display proudly. What about your customer service department? Do they need new name tags? Choose from our large selection of custom shapes and material colors so that they know you notice them. Whatever the department or work environment, personalized gifts are sure to make the difference.

name plates and personal identification are great ideas for corporate giftsWhether it’s a new name tag for you, a desk wedge for your associates or other personal identification products for your clients, custom-made gifts are always appreciated. And, we’re sure to have the right gifts for your needs!

P.S. We suggest this every year, not because we make them, but because they do make a great gift even better. So, recognize each employee for a job well done this year with a specially wrapped gift and some branded, personalized ribbon!

Fun in the Sun with Coller Industries

Summer is always a wonderful time here at Coller Industries!

But, we also know how to have fun! Every year, Coller Industries throws a Summer BBQ Bash for the employees. And every year it seems just to get better.

The party is held at Germania Park (a local park here in Utah) every year. It’s a great place with plenty of space for all the employees to come and enjoy the food and company. There is always fun for all ages, and the employees were encouraged to bring their families.

This year included a bounce house for the kids and water guns for anyone who wanted to play. We also had fantastic food provided by Joe Morley’s BBQ. The spread they brought was fabulous and fed everyone till they couldn’t eat anymore.

As employees, we would like to give a special thank you to Coller Industries and especially the Coller family for providing such an enjoyable activity for their employees.

And here’s how we do that:

Mathew, Web Design and Development, said, “Being with family and friends was the best part. I love being with people that I can socialize with and be comfortable around.”

Lydia, Customer Service, said, “The food was my favorite part because it was all really good and there was nothing I didn’t enjoy.”

Charles, Sample Requests, said, “The ribs were delicious!” He also said, “I think we have an exceptional staff. I work for a very special company who really cares about its employees. And the result is that the employees have developed long lasting relationships.”

Amanda, Solutions Manager, said, “It was really HOT! But, my favorite part would have to be the BBQ. Coller Industries always tries out new and exciting BBQ places every year.”

3 Top Lessons Learned from Donating

There are many lessons to be learned from providing donations to our clients.

For almost eight years, Clyde and Gary Coller, the CEO and President of Coller Industries Incorporated have generously donated to Granite Education Foundation. The Collers give time and money to those in need, and each year they strive to give back to our local community.

We started donating to Granite Education Foundation in 2009 and to date we have given over $37,000. As employees here at Coller Industries, it is a delight knowing that our employer is so generous and giving to our community. And, each of these individual donations makes its mark on both the givers and the receivers. And each teaches valuable lessons.

Lesson No. 1:

“(Donations make) us more responsible in the community,” said Gary Coller. “Hopefully our customers appreciate when they see that we give back to our community.”

Well said, Gary! These donations not only make us more responsible, but they also make us more aware of the needs of our neighbors and communities. From needing name tags in school and other places of business to needing a helping hand to members of our community, one will always find Coller Industries in the act of giving.

Lesson No. 2:

We received the following letter and valentines from Granite Education Foundation:

Hey, Valentine!
Exchanging heartfelt messages on Valentine’s Day is a well-loved tradition. While the earliest Valentines were little more than hastily scribbled notes, today we can choose from thousands of varieties, each designed for a specific relationship in our lives. A hundred years ago, only sweethearts exchanged Valentine’s Day cards, but the practice has spread to encompass friends, family, colleagues and supporters.
This year, Granite Education Foundation and students from throughout Granite School District want to express our heart-felt thanks for your continued generosity and support. Enclosed you will find hand-made Valentine’s Day cards that our students created with YOU in mind. Additionally, please find enclosed a small edible token as an expression of Granite Education Foundation’s appreciation for your continued support and boundless goodwill.
In our opinion, YOU’RE AWESOME SAUCE, Valentine! Thanks for believing in our mission and for the extra boost you give kids and educators. We couldn’t accomplish what we do without YOU.
Thank you with all our heart!
Brent Severe, Chief Executive Officer
JeAnna Ellis, Office Coordinator / Donor Relations
Audrey Price, Finance / Operations
Erin Woodlief, Giving / Events Coordinator

Donating means that not only have we impacted the lives of Coller Industries employees, but also the lives of the children and teachers in our neighborhoods. So, no matter what we do, we are always aware that people are watching and wondering what we do. It’s never about the name tag, it’s always about the person!

And, last but not least, Lesson No. 3:

By believing in the mission of other organizations and helping them in their directives, we end up helping ourselves. Now, while this may sound a bit selfish, here are the reasons that isn’t the case.

By helping Granite Education Foundation with their needs, we benefit the lives of countless children. Which, in turn, helps their families. And that’s only the beginning of the chain! By paying our efforts forward, we are in fact returning to our community. And just look at the wonderful thank you’s we have received thus far!

We’ve learned from these lessons and we just want to say thank you right back! So, not only to Granite Education Foundation but to all those who receive our donations, THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU! We cherish all of our customers and their communities!

Merry Christmas from Our Desk To Yours!

coller industries incorporated annual employee christmas party with fun prizes and a jugglerColler Industries enjoys spoiling their employees! And we all love accepting it, especially at the annual Christmas party!

Now, don’t get us wrong. We care about our customers too. And part of that caring means that we are always giving back to our clients and our local community. But, it also means that we are regularly returning benefits to our employees and trying to make work as fun (and productive) as possible.

So, every year Coller Industries invites all the staff and their families to an annual Christmas party. This event includes lunch, games, presents and wonderful conversations! And this year, we had a special treat of local juggler Marcus Wilson.

Marcus, Funny Man Who Does Trickscoller industries incorporated annual employee christmas party with fun prizes and a juggler
(Marcus found out long ago) that as long as he was on stage people seemed to enjoy his obnoxious antics. In high school, while working at a restaurant, he learned to juggle with rolls and oranges and fell in love with useless tricks and odd skills. At the age of 22, armed with a handful of these tricks and a desire to entertain, he began doing shows. About five years later, he began performing in comedy clubs. Since then, he has been making his living performing.

As per tradition, the Red Lion Hotel in Salt Lake City hosted the Christmas party. This has been a favorite venue for our annual party for many years. The hotel had an excellent buffet of food for lunch including prime rib and salmon for the adults and macaroni and cheese with chicken fingers for the youngsters. And don’t forget the desserts: cheesecake, chocolate cake and pumpkin pie were all there!

Because, well, we just love name tags! This year all the adults received mugs with our logo on them and a name tag in the shape of either a bell or a tree ornament. Each mug had a handful of candy included. And all the kids who were there received a present chosen just for them.

As employees, we would like to give a special thank you to Coller Industries.

And especially the Coller family and our office manager, Eboni, for providing such an enjoyable activity for their employees. And here’s how we say that thank you!
