Are you a ham or a fruitcake? Giftwise, that is.
That’s the question asked by HON, a company that designs and manufactures office furniture. HON surveyed over 800 workers across the country about what kind of gift they received from their employers.
Here’s what the survey revealed:
- Over half of the employees who responded (54 percent) received a cash bonus.
- On the flip side of that generosity, 24 percent said their company gave them nothing – nada, zip, zilch. (Bah, humbug!)
- 22 percent received a gift certificate or gift card.
- Some employers (18 percent) gifted their workers with some sort of food. Five percent gave employees turkeys, and another 4 percent gave out hams. Nine percent fell under the category of “other food items.” (Probably those dreaded fruitcakes!)
