Decision Making Series: Giving and Accepting Gifts

Christmas is the time of year for gift giving, however have you considered whether you should give or accept gifts with Members?

All across the world, gift giving is an important custom. People from all cultures give gifts to show family and friends how grateful they are to have them in their lives.

Gift giving in the workplace can be an expression of gratefulness too. Unfortunately, though, some people in workplaces give gifts to gain power or to win favourable treatment.

Helpers visit and support Members in their homes everyday. Unique and close relationships with Members and their loved ones can often form. Five Good Friends has developed a short animation that outlines to can ensure gifts given, and received at work remain ethical and fair.

If you haven't had the chance, we also encourage you to take the time to read the Five Good Friends Receiving Gifts and Favours Policy.
