This guide reveals some of the issues with gifts and provides some suggestions for how an employer might resolve these issues.
Gifts are a feature of business relationships, but the receipt of gifts by employees in your organisation should not become a bone of contention amongst staff, and it should not compromise your business in any way. Gifts come in many shapes and forms in the business environment but they always provide the recipient with a benefit; your organisation should have discretion as to who enjoys that benefit. Developing a policy on gifts is a sure way of minimising most of the problems associated with gifts
particularly if the basic principle of that policy is a mandatory reporting of all gifts. Relying on the integrity of your employees and business partners may not be the most sensible way
of ensuring you are getting the best deal in a competitive business environment.
