We understand how natural it is to thank people or acknowledge them in some way, especially on special occasions or when they have gone the extra mile.
In the spirit of this we don’t discourage gift-giving at Hireup but recommend that gifts only be of minor value, such as a card or a box of chocolates.
Gifts of greater value may be seen as influencing decision-making, performance of duties or the way in which we engage with each other; or it may make the receiver feel obligated in some way to the giver.
Our gift-giving guidelines apply to individuals and other service providers or organisations, particularly where it might impact on choice of support.
To ensure that gift-giving at Hireup is a positive and transparent process, we ask recipients to let us know about gifts that have a value greater than $70, as soon as possible after they are received.
If you are unsure if a gift is acceptable or not, please get in touch.
