Gift policy


Dear HR Community

In view of the current economic conditions caused by the pandemic, we have decided to review our policy with regard to employee gifts.

These gifts are provided for marriage, newborns, wellness, and condolence.

My question is whether you are also assessing your employee gifts policy and what you are currently giving to your employees in the event of a marriage, newborn, etc.

We are in the interior design industry.




HR Poll: Are you reviewing your employee gifts policy?

Yes: 15.79%

No: 78.95%

Maybe: 5.26%






No, we are not reviewing at the moment. Marriage - no gift but 1-day marriage leave. Newborn - Hamper. Condolence - Condolence Gift - Z

Hi Serene,

We are good with our employee gifts policy for now – the gift value is $80 (newborn, wellness and condolence).

Hope this helps.

We are in the global mobility business.

Best Regards,
