Editor’s Note: The holiday season is here, and TLNT is getting into the spirit with some classic holiday posts. Look for them through Christmas Eve.
I’ve seen many a workplace holiday season come and go, and with another one upon us, I wonder: Why does writing this make me feel like Scrooge lecturing Bob Cratchit?
Here’s the deal: I have worked in lots of offices where some of the staff really got into holiday planning and making sure that everyone was involved in the festivities.
Nothing wrong with that, of course, but one of the problems that crops up during the holiday season time and time again is that all that holiday fun can get in the way of getting real, live work done.
And like it or not, sometimes work has to still get done, holiday season or no.
