    Will it be good to accept gifts from the vendors with whom our company makes transactions?

    I am recruited to the job of a training coordinator in IOCL. We contact some vendors to do some transactions for various goods. We buy all the goods in a lump sum amount for our training purpose. During the time of any festivals like Deepavali or Dashar or New Year, vendors gift us various things like sweets, books or pen. Are we supposed to take gifts from vendor? Please suggest.

    Hello Sir ,

    When you are working for any company or a firm and if you come in contact with people in process of your work then you get acquainted to them not only as employee of tha firm but also as a person in personal .

    So when you buy lump of goods for firm you not only develop a relation wtih the vendor as a employee but also as a person .


    So if they offer you gifts on festive occassions accept them and dont have the feeling of guilt in your mind.

    But next time when you order the things for the firm order to the vendor whose goods are good and benficial for the company ,
    irrespective of what are your personal relations with the vendor .

    DEAR,
    You need not to be to much worried on for this.By doing such things they just want to show their happiness they use to get in doing trade with you.
    And also if you see it with a professional view then by offering all this they want you to be their permanent customer.
    So i just suggest you that if you does not feel good in taking goods from them, then you should not directly say no to them. This may heart their feelings instead you can take little of whatever they offer you.

    Hope this may help you.
