THIS IS LANE BEATTIE, PRESIDENT OF THE SALT LAKE CHAMBER, WITH YOUR METRO BUSINESS REPORT
During the holiday season, many corporations and individuals are showing their appreciation by giving business gifts. The Creative Group recently sent us a list of some of the more unusual gifts that business professionals have received: A gold tooth, a container of fake worms, a nail gun, a wooden propeller blade, a six-foot-tall kid’s bazooka, a gigantic plastic carrot, and a live monkey. If you are giving gifts, perhaps you would want to be more, well, conservative. Give things that provide a personal touch. Avoid things tied directly to religious aspects of the season—unless you are certain of the recipient’s religion. Consider taking them out to lunch or maybe make a donation to a charity in their name. Remember, monkeys are fun, but not a recommended corporate gift.
Explore the heart of personnel law and how it relates to safe hiring and firing practices at the next Women’s Network for Entrepreneurial Training at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow at the Chamber. Elizabeth Guss of Cohesion will present on employer employee relations. To register, call the Chamber at 328-5051, or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
