During the holiday season, it is traditional in many cultures to give gifts. For some, gift giving is viewed as a celebration of the year’s prosperity, for others it is viewed as an expression of charity and still, for others gift giving is rooted in religious meaning. Does your organization have a tradition for gift giving?
Gift giving is practiced by organizations at various levels, including simple exchanges between employees in offices. In commercial settings, gift exchanges can be formally arranged or can be spontaneous between appreciative business partners, customers, colleagues and co-workers. Does your gift giving tradition enhance your corporate culture?
Personalized gifts may be hard to pick out in business situations. However, the spirit of giving is most often well received by all who have shared and contributed to your success. Consider establishing a gift giving tradition that celebrates the prosperity from your business collaborations.
