Holiday Bonuses and Company Parties Are Making a Comeback! But Company-Sponsored Drunkenness Isn’t

When the economy quit on us, it took a lot of people’s Christmas bonuses and company holiday parties with it.  But according to a new survey, after two years in the wilderness, they’re coming back, baby!

 —41% of employers plan to give out end-of-the-year bonuses or gifts this year.  That’s up from an all-time low of 33% last year . . . and stopped a three-year trend of bonuses going down.

 —76% of employers say they’re holding a party this month.  That’s up 9% from last year, which was a 10-year low.

 —52% of employers say that their employees can bring their spouses or other guests to the holiday party this year, that’s up from 47% last year.

 –Now, for a downer.  Companies are bringing back the parties . . . but not planning on getting you HAMMERED at them.  58% will serve alcohol at the party . . . that’s down 3% from last year and 7% from 2008.

 –One more downer.  Because both Christmas and New Year’s are on weekends this year, only 37% of employers are going to make it up to you by giving you OTHER days off this holiday season.
