More partners being invited to Christmas work parties


Christmas 2010 might have seen fewer Christmas work parties, but those employers who still chose to fund a festive gathering are now favouring including more partners of employees despite the associate costs.

One in six events booked through Elysium Global Events in London saw partners included over Christmas 2010, compared to one in 13 in 2009.

Over half of the events booked at Venturi’s Table Corporate Cookery Centre in London have invited partners, compared to 20% last year.

Anna Venturi, Venturi’s MD, commented:

"The atmosphere is definitely different when other halves are involved. They tend to be more civilised affairs with people spending more time talking and less time drinking."

Both companies also reported that daytime work Christmas events are becoming more popular.

So it would appear including partners makes for a much more comfortable and enjoyable work Christmas party without the traditional embarrassing antics.
