I’ve seen a lot of companies cutting back on end-of-year parties. There is a tendency to just do smaller team/ department get-togethers or omit Christmas
celebrations all together in an effort to cut costs. Don’t get me wrong, I do get it – Christmas parties can be very expensive and when leaders are
looking to cut costs it seems logical to cull the office party or cancel it altogether. But even though you’ll be saving money on the catering and
venue hire, there could be more at stake by skimping on the Christmas party than first meets the eye.
