A fairly important holiday is coming up in the next month or so, I am not sure exactly how far away it is off of the top of my head. But this is the time of year that we traditionally send out little presents to our clients, as a token of our appreciation to them. So we are trying to find a company to make corporate gifts in Singapore for us to send to those clients.
We have not completely decided on what we want to do in terms of the gifts, but we have some different ideas that have been floating around the office. We want something that is branded with our company’s name and logo, but has some functionality or value. At the same time, it can’t be a gift that is worth very much money, because we have a corporate policy against giving anything more than a modest gift. I believe that there are price limits, but I am not sure what the limit is, and I would have to check our global procedure database for that. Anyway, we can’t exceed those limits because we are restricted from giving even the appearance of impropriety, or conflict of interest.
That is because our company does a lot of third-party testing, which is supposed to be completely neutral, and therefore our reputation hinges partially on our ability to appear to be a neutral party. Anyway, that was a bit of a boring aside, because I started typing this to try to figure out what we were going to get for gifts to our clients, and instead I spoent a lot of time talking about what we could not do for presents. Anyway, I just found the contact info for a local company and I am going to give them a call.
