  • 4 Gift-Giving Tips To Keep You Off The Boss’s Naughty List

    Forbes - 12/11/2013

     Take a cue from your colleagues

     If you’re the new kid on the block, follow the example set by seasoned vets when it comes to gifting and don’t make any purchases until you’ve got a firm grasp on office culture. As Lynne Sarikas, director of Northeastern University’s MBA Career Center, puts it:

    “It is important to know what others do, so you don’t stand out on the extreme end – either positively or negatively. If you are the only person to bring the boss a gift, others will think you are ‘sucking up.’ If you are the only one without a gift for the boss, you will feel conspicuously absent. Go with the flow. Some organizations have official policies prohibiting or limiting gift giving so be sure to know the environment.”
