For most of us, the idea of a holiday party has changed. Remember when it was at a hotel downtown? You got all dressed up with your spouse and danced the night away, celebrating your big bonus, as the CEO toasted another year of double-digit growth. Now some of us are glad to get a pat on the back and a pizza party in the conference room.
But according to the Society for Human Resource Management, 68 percent of organizations will hold a year-end/holiday party in 2011. Today companies just seem to be doing much more low-key, do-it-yourself parties and others are striking a balance between the pre-recession days and still having fun.
SurePayroll would like to hear your stories about this year’s holiday party. Did you do something different than in years past? Did employees receive a unique award for their hard work? What value did the party bring to your small business (camaraderie, stress relief, morale boost, etc.)?
