Is the company you work for having a Christmas party this year? Most won’t. The company Christmas party is in many cases the latest casualty of the Corona Virus, and rules encouraging social distancing and discouraging larger gatherings indoors. I suspect there are more than a few Human Resources managers who aren’t all that upset. The office Christmas party has been a staple of American business for decades but some have gotten a little too lively especially when large amounts of alcohol are consumed. The office Christmas party gives managers a chance to thank employees for their work during the year, but the pandemic has negatively impacted many company’s bottom lines, causing them to pull the plug on the tradition. If you are among those who like to get together socially with the people you work with every day, you can only hope that the office Christmas party might return next year. That’s the way I see it.
