Bosses and companies often give little Christmas presents and holiday goodies to their employees, but it turns out that instead of trinkets, candy, wine or dinner, employees want one thing: More money. Instead of Christmas parties or Christmas presents, give the people Christmas bonuses!
CBS News reports that 27 percent of respondents in a survey by staffing company Express Employment Professionals said they would like a cash bonus for Christmas, and 13 percent would rather opt instead for pay raises. About 9 percent want some days off or shorter work hours over the holidays, while 5 percent said that gift cards would be the best.
By the numbers, here are what employers are actually giving their employees for this holiday season:
- Cash: 34 percent
- Nothing at all: 21 percent
- Gift cards: 12 percent
- Other: 7 percent
- Extra days off: 3 percent
- Tangible gifts: 3 percent
- A combination of the above: 19 percent
Here’s hoping you get what you wished for!
