Fewer holiday parties on the calendar

Here at The Daily Record, there’s been a lot of talk lately about office holiday parties. We published a guide for throwing one in our post-Thanksgiving issue; we also compiled a Holiday Gift Guide; our own fiesta is next Friday, at the Baltimore Museum of Art.

But not every employee has a raucous party to look forward to this year. reports that fewer employers are throwing holiday parties this year due to “growing economic uncertainties.”

Only 85 of 100 leading businesses surveyed said a celebration was in the works – the third-lowest level since 1991.

Of the parties that will be held, only half will be in the evening and just two-thirds will offer holiday spirits.

Bah, humbug.

Thanks to our sister blog in Long Island for the link.
