We are planning to frame a policy on Birhdays. Do any of your organisation have a policy on Birthdays? If yes, can you please send a copy of your policy?

thanks, nagarajan

I guess one needs to look at a policy such as this in the context of the company, the employee and the environment. One needs to take the environment into consideration as well. In the current business environment where companies are frantically trying to cut costs and remain above the water, such a policy does not reflect well, specially if its a public company and as such as shareholders interests at stake. I have been working in Corporate America for the last 11 years and here is what I observed:

In larger companies birthday policies are more a discretion at the employee group level. There are no specific company policies as such. Company recognized employees for good work (and there are several awards depending on the work accomplished). Regarding birthdays, the employee's immediate group may have a birthday policy where his colleagues/peers pool in and celebrate.

For smaller companies (the startups for example there were policies quite idiosyncratic with the traditional norms of business), but then these were the infamous dot-bombs and their practices can be ignored :-))

All said and done, having a smaller number of employees may make such a policy feasible but to have a corporate wide policy is not in the interests of the share holder.

Hello all,

The procedure followed in our organisation regarding this Birthday's or Marriage anniversary at the end of that month. Complete that month we keep the names of the people whose Birthday's are mentioned in the notice board, personal mail goes from the HR on respective day.

At the end of last month, I mean last Friday of the month all the employees come close and have small get-together - Cake cutting, small entertainment everything on the HOUSE.
