No Christmas bonus for 90% of staff
More than 90 per cent of the British workforce will not receive a Christmas bonus this year, according to a new poll.

Related research from Select Appointments revealed that 37 per cent of UK businesses are planning to close for a week or more over Christmas, however, providing them with a longer holiday, Onrec.com reports.

Strategy support manager at the firm Sandy Jarrett said: "With work/life balance becoming increasingly important to employees, companies are looking for new ways to motivate staff, aside from financial rewards.

"Longer holidays give families more time to spend together, which is one of the most important parts of Christmas for many people."

The study comes after a report from supermarket Somerfield claimed that only one-third of workers would be given a completely free Christmas party courtesy of their employers this year.
