Project Description

Each new hire begins their experience at Element Three with a custom-packed box of E3 swag and information.

The box itself is a game, as it has all kinds of hidden messages and funny quotes and jargon to introduce our new employees to our culture. This box could contain anything really, but ours sends each new hire on a personal “€œmission” and contains the following items:
- Element Three water bottle to help them stay hydrated for their journey
- An Element Three T-shirt with the acronym we use around our Core Values, “A Best Co” emblazoned on the front
- A few Element Three field notebooks with our Core Values spelled out along with other humorous and important bits of information
- Branded pencils that clearly state that Element Three is #2 to no one
- A vintage motel keychain with their key to the office so they can come and go as they please
- A personal welcome message from our president, Tiffany Sauder
- A map of the office so they can see who sits where, what they do, and how to find the kitchen (which is very important). It also lists local restaurants on the back, categorized by cost so new hires know where to eat when they go out for lunch.
- A four week on-boarding mission checklist filled with tasks, both fun and serious, to help them get acclimated to our environment, how things work, and who people are. This task list is completed alongside an assigned E3 veteran responsible for mentoring them through the first month of employment.

Production Lesson(s)

It's important to consider how the packaging will live after it's initial intended use. Is it functional, or is it going to just take up space? If it has some additional functionality or possible usage, it's more likely that it's going to have a longer shelf life. ”
