Companies failing to show Xmas spirit

UK companies are showing virtually no Christmas spirit this season, with hardly any awarding a Christmas bonus and some even resorting to making staff pay for their own Christmas party.

Link: For and Against – Christmas party? I think not

Such has been the poor response from employers, that employees have been forced to create their own festive cheer, a survey put out by the Chartered Management Institute found.

Its research found that 80% of companies no longer give an end of year bonus, while more than half require staff to work during the festive period.

Each year it seems the Christmas spirit is further eroded – last year 90% of managers said they would provide a Christmas party, this year just two-thirds made a similar promise.

‘Christmas may only come once a year, but it is a regular event which should be planned for,’ said Karen Charlesworth, head of research at the institute.

‘Rather than bemoan potential disruption, organisations should make provisions and consider the long-term benefit of showing appreciation to their staff.’
