You are an employee at ABC company. You notice that John, another employee at the company, has recently received a promotion to assistant manager. You hear from your co-workers that John has been giving the manager of the company gifts and offering to take them out for dinner and to other local events. No one else was notified that the position was open and John does not have the qualifications for this position. The company’s policy clearly states that gift giving, even without the intent of bribery, is not allowed.
In a 1 to 2 page APA-formatted paper, please respond to the following:
- How would you have handled this situation if you were the manager of ABC Company and an employee was giving you gifts?
- How is this handled in the organization you chose in Module 1 and the organization you currently work for (or one you have worked for)?
- How does this relate to the case that your group was analyzing on the discussion board?
After responding to the questions above, use research to determine industry best practices related to gift-giving and bribery. Develop a brief policy and procedure, 1 to 2 pages in length, that provides guidance for managers on how to handle these situations.
