Wondering about the standard tip for the holidays? Here are some guidelines for gifts and gratuities for those non-family members who are important in your life.
Newspaper carrier: the equivalent of one month’s subscription. Can include when you pay your bill.
Gift wrapper: $1 or $2 per package
Day care staff: gift or cash tip of about $35, and a handmade gift from your child
Assistant: a gift or gift card worth at least $50, depending on your postion in the company and the assistant’s length of service. Avoid anything too personal, such as perfume or clothing.
Boss: a simple gift. Talk to coworkers to see if they’d like to chip in for a gift card.
Teacher: don’t spend more than $25, assuming the school allows gifts. Gift cards for a book store, coffee shop are nice.
Mail carrier: small gift or gift card for about $20. Anything more is prohibited by the USPS.
Babysitter: equal to one or two nights’ pay.
Developing a positive mentoring program within your company provides your employees with new inspiration and the wisdom of experience. BBRS President and CEO Terri Bozkaya addresses the importance of mentoring in the workplace in her article: Mentoring: The value of corporate ‘elders’.
