Overwhelming Majority of U.S Workers Prefer a Cash Bonus Over an Office Party This Holiday Season
No, I'm, not doing the bah humbug thing, it's right here in black and white. According to a survey by Harris Interactive, The Consumerist reports 2,059 adults responded to the survey asking (if given a choice), would they prefer an office party, a cash bonus, or other perks, from their employer this holiday season.
A whopping 73% of U.S. workers said they would prefer the cash bonus over an office party or other perks.
Cash bonus was the winner by far, followed by a raise (60%), and extra paid time off (36%). Perks that didn't go over real well were company stock, health care subsidies, and gym memberships.
In short, office parties are out and cash is in.
