Case Study:
United Response Summer Wellbeing

United Response, a prominent UK care provider with a widespread estate and a dedicated workforce of nearly 4,000, is committed to recognising and valuing its staff. The leadership team at United Response wanted to express their gratitude towards their employees for their exceptional service and dedication. I-Tel Group was tasked with creating a unique gift pack that conveyed wellbeing and appreciation.
Delivering a unified token of appreciation across 400 diverse locations, with a workforce engaged in various care settings and demographics, presented logistical and creative challenges. The project needed to reflect United Response’s dedication to employee engagement and ensure every staff member felt valued.

Our solution

I-Tel’s creative teams developed the “Summer Cool Bag” concept, a thoughtful and practical gift that employees would find beneficial. Each cool bag was fully branded and filled with items like lip balm and water bottles, aligning with the wellbeing theme. Our logistics experts managed the coordination and simultaneous delivery of 3,800 gift packs, ensuring an event-day atmosphere across all locations, fostering a sense of unity and appreciation.
