Understanding of Accepting and Giving Gifts
The act of giving gifts assists in establishing or enhancing all types of relationships. This is true for both small business and the corporate world. One of the challenging areas of logical reasoning involves gauging where to draw the line in the area of giving gifts. Is it right or wrong? In situations where certain actions are right and others are absolutely wrong, there are shady areas where it is difficult to reach an outright decision. Accepting and giving gifts is such an area which constantly puts corporate professionals in a dilemma about whether the gift being given will be perceived as a bribe or simply a gift. For this reason, Go2 Firearm Safety, Inc. has chosen to take away the risk to the employee, the vendor and company as a whole as it could potentially become a liability and damage the name and reputation of Go2 Firearm Safety, Inc., vendors, or other entities it works with at any given time.
Gifts should never be given during the process of bidding, business relationship, in the waiting period for renewal of a contract, at a time when negotiations are going on. Such timing results in the perception of a bribe or other members of the team often feel that there is something more going on or that they have not been treated fairly. Go2 Firearm Safety, Inc. is a company that takes pride in the responsibility of protecting its vendors, business relationships, employees from any such miscommunication, unintended action or variant from giving or receiving gifts.
