Question:A vendor I work with just finished an important project for me on time and under budget. I would like to show my appreciation with a gift. What is appropriate?
When we give gifts, we set the tone for how we conduct business—purely on business considerations. Keep this in mind when selecting a gift for a vendor. Also take into consideration their company’s gifts and entertainment policy. Just as we want others to respect our standards, we want to be mindful of theirs.
