If you could choose your Christmas reward…

09 January 2017

…what would it be? Our poll revealed that the majority would opt for a taxable cash equivalent of a Christmas party/meal.

We ran a festive poll in the lead up to Christmas where we asked if you were given a choice of the following what would you choose:

  • Christmas party/meal
  • Taxable cash equivalent payment
  • Equivalent donation to charity.

648 people took part in our poll. Only 14% opted for a donation to charity, whereas the majority (56%) went for the taxable cash equivalent – bah humbug or just plain practical? Is the staff Christmas event not as popular as it once was with less than a third (30%) choosing this option? But then some employers aren’t in a position to provide anything.
