Gifts and gratitude: 'Tis the season

December 4, 2023

Shelley Finlayson, Acting Director and Program Counsel

Although the Thanksgiving holiday is behind us, the time for giving and gratitude continues. With the joys of the season, so too come the gift-related challenges.

To help hard-working federal employees navigate the many well-deserved gifts that the season may bring, OGE has put together some holiday ethics survival tips.

We hope these tips will help the millions of federal employees who show up every day to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our nation to also continue to protect the trust of the public they serve  while having a joyous holiday season.
