It is holiday time and most office parties are about to be in full swing!
Just about every year the age old question of how much to give always resurfaces. Are bonus checks determined by the work performance, longevity , how long an employee has been with you, or is it a combination of all of those things?
The other pause for thought is how to treat all of the other employees. Is it safe to be uniformand give everyone the same or should each employee be treated individually? On the other hand, perhaps the holidays are just a time to create good employee morale and if you have an employee whose work performance is not exactly stellar, maybe this perk will be just the spark they need to light their working fire.
With the downward trend in the economy, even the one who does the hiring and administrating can't help but wonder what is the right message to send. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly welcomed!!
