My company will still order a baby hamper no matter whether be it the staff is male or female, go along with the budget that we have.

Our company does not have such practice. However, for colleagues who are keen to chip in to share a gift. For some companies, they may have the benefit of giving a $100 angbao to the employee once they produce the birth Cert of the child.

Yes, we do provide such gift for a newborn of a female or male employee. The amount limit is $150 for executive level and below, $250 for the managerial level and above.

It will be good if your Company has a Baby Gift Policy as it is an occasion that is worth celebrating, be it female employee or male employee’s spouse.
