In the past couple of years, tough times across all industries caused many businesses to scale back or cancel their annual holiday parties. But after a better 2010, many office holiday parties are back again, and self-storage industry pros are turning to Self-Storage Talk to share information about their seasonal soirees.
Member Crystle408 started a thread about holiday parties, expressing her eagerness for steak and lobster tail at her company's event, which will be on a boat. She also asked members to share their favorite memories of company holiday gatherings. The range of fuss made over the holiday goes from simple dinners out to elaborate outings where staffs from multiple sites come together. Some operators have shared that their company doesn't do much, but they don't bemoan or complain. They seem to be grateful for whatever appreciation they get.
Other holiday-related discussions are also on the forum. On these threads, members discuss holiday bonuses and gifts, all of which widely vary. These types of discussions usually happen in the Staffing, Education and Training forum.
