Party time

Check out the results of our poll on preferred holiday workplace events.

’Tis the season to be festive and, according to our latest reader poll, more than half of you (62%) want your workplace to host an event to mark the occasion. The type of affair desired, however, depends on your area of work. Respondents in industry and public practice are most likely to opt for a dinner that allows them to bring a guest, while those in the not-for-profit and public sectors prefer a staff-only lunch. Along the same lines, 80% of respondents in public practice say their employer should spend more than $50 per person on the event, while more than half of those in other sectors say the amount should be less than $50. Interestingly, 52% of you said you’d rather forgo the party altogether and instead receive that sum as a cash bonus or gift card.
