In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Technology Gifts Don't Compute for CIOs: Most IT Executives Don't Plan to Give Electronics This Holiday Season
Technology Gifts Don't Compute for CIOs: Most IT Executives Don't Plan to Give Electronics This Holiday Season

MENLO PARK, Calif., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Don't count on scoring a new laptop computer or PDA from the technology executive in your life. According to a recent survey, nearly two-thirds of chief information officers (CIOs) will not give computers, electronics or other technology gadgets as gifts this year.

The national poll includes responses from more than 1,400 CIOs from a stratified random sample of U.S. companies with 100 or more employees. It was conducted by an independent research firm and developed by Robert Half Technology, a leading provider of information technology professionals on a project and full-time basis.

CIOs were asked, "Do you plan to give technology-based products, such as computers, electronics or technology gadgets, as gifts for the holidays?" Their responses:

No 64% Yes 33% Don't know 3% 100%

"IT managers may be experts on all things technology-related, but it doesn't mean their personal or professional gift giving has to be limited to electronics and technology gadgets," said Katherine Spencer Lee, executive director of Robert Half Technology.

Lee pointed out that executives may prefer to give items to friends and loved ones that are more personal. For office gifts, however, items that are too personal might not be appropriate. She made the following recommendations for gift giving in a professional setting:

-- Err on the conservative side. If you question whether or not a gift is appropriate, it probably isn't. -- Don't overdo it. A pricey present is typically unnecessary and may make the recipient feel as if he or she must reciprocate. -- Make a charitable contribution. If you're at a loss for gift ideas, consider a donation to a charitable organization in the recipient's name. -- Don't rush. If you're running out of time for holiday shopping, consider presenting a small New Year's gift, such as a calendar or journal. -- Acknowledge the gift. When you're the recipient, always send a thank-you note or other form of acknowledgement that shows you appreciate the sender's thoughtfulness.
