Do the company, employees and/or independent contractors accept favors from vendors?
WE DO NOT.
It is tempting, we must say to be “offered” special services from vendors who perform regular services on our portfolio, but it is also a huge conflict of interest. Our employees and independent contractors sign an agreement that they will not accept “freebies” from our vendors. If they do, it is grounds for immediate dismissal. It is just not good business practice.
