Modesty rules in holiday parties
Thursday - 12/9/2010, 4:07pm EST
According to the survey, 64 percent of companies are planning holiday parties this year, up from 62 percent last year. But 53 percent of them are keeping the parties on company property, up from 29 percent last year.
The survey quotes one HR professional saying a scaled-back holiday celebration was well-received.
"We scaled back holiday party in 2008 from an off-site event at an upscale restaurant to a more modest catered event at our own facility. Office is tastefully decorated and large hallway spaces are set up for conversations," the HR professional said. "Feedback is that this more simple approach is less intense and enables people to more easily connect and converse with one another."
