Punk Rock HR Question: Bosses & Christmas Gifts


I have two email messages that ask, “What’s a good Christmas gift for my boss?”

  1. Competency.
  2. Timeliness.
  3. Performance.
  4. Good hygiene.
  5. A positive attitude.

You don’t buy your boss anything. Your boss buys you stuff to thank you for a job well done. Or your boss doesn’t buy you anything because you get a paycheck. We’re grown ups. Let’s move on.
