According to one recent survey, 90% of companies are planning to throw a holiday party this year, which is up from 74% last year. But a separate survey showed that only about 5% of employees actually CARE . . . even if there’s an open bar.
–Here are three more random facts about your holiday work party.
#1.) There’s an 80% Chance They’ll Serve Alcohol. But you probably won’t be able to drink much, because there’s a 43% chance your party is being held over LUNCH. Only one-third of holiday parties take place at night.
#2.) There’s a 29% Chance It’s Being Held at Your Office. But that’s not actually the most popular place to have them. About 40% of office holiday parties happen at restaurants.
#3.) There’s a Good Chance the Party Will Lead to One of Your Co-Workers Having an Affair. At least according to a survey by AshleyMadison.com . . . the dating site for people who are actively TRYING to cheat.
