    Should the Year End Holiday Office Parties End?

    On Monday, the Society for Human Resource Management released its annual survey about end-of-the-year office fĂȘtes. In it, 30 percent of the H.R. professionals who responded said their companies do not usually have year-end parties for all employees. That's the largest percentage recorded since the organization started doing the survey in 2009.

    I believe a lot of companies stopped having year end holiday parties due to the cost. It's a real budget buster especially if a venue is rented with meals, an open bar, and entertainment via a band/DJ.
    These days you're most likely to see individual departments having an (alcohol free) office "potluck luncheon" in their work area.
    I see nothing wrong with co-workers celebrating a successful year together. It's a "team building" exercise for the most part.

      I think year end parties are good morale boosters and maybe the employees can contribute to it. Pot luck is always fin. Bosses and corporations need to stop looking at the bottom line.
