Senior staff fare better over Christmas perks

New
research shows that employers will often treat senior staff better than their
junior colleagues when it comes to Christmas benefits.

Labour
Research’s annual Christmas Benefits Survey of workplace union representatives
finds that managers are often treated preferentially and enjoy benefits such as
free drinks parties or special gifts.

The
survey, based on 150 responses from union representatives covering 96,000
employees, also reveals that a festive lunch in the canteen is the most common
Christmas perk, although 20 per cent of staff have to pay for the luxury.

Less
than a quarter of respondents said they were provided with a party, while just
over a quarter received a seasonal gift.
