(PRWEB) April 26, 2012
WeComply, Inc., a leader in web-based ethics and compliance training for corporate employees, has announced the release of a new "Business Gifts and Courtesies" training course. This course teaches employees about giving and receiving gifts, meals, entertainment and other courtesies in the business context.
The course begins with an overview of the three main types of business courtesies and a discussion of the general considerations of appropriate gift-giving. It provides detailed guidelines for giving and receiving specific types of business courtesies in various contexts. In addition, the course offers direction for handling questionable gift-giving situations.
“Certain business courtesies, such as meals, gifts and entertainment, can help cement strong relationships with clients, vendors and other partners,” said Mike Pallatta, WeComply CEO. “However, giving or receiving inappropriate business courtesies can have negative consequences. It’s crucial that employees understand the boundaries of corporate gift-giving so they don't inadvertently place a business partner in an awkward position or, worse yet, offer a courtesy that may be perceived as a bribe or kickback.”
