  • Key Findings Do organizations plan to have a 2012 end-of-year/holiday party? About three-quarters (72%) of organizations will hold a 2012 end-of-year or holiday party for their employees. The percentage of organizations holding parties in 2012 and 2011 has increased compared with 2010 and 2009. Will organizations’ end-of-year/holiday parties be held on-site or off-site? Sixty-eight percent of organizations indicated that their end-of-year/holiday party will be held off-site. Nearly one-quarter (23%) of these parties will be held on-site. Will alcohol be served at the end-of-year/holiday party? More than one-half (61%) of organizations indicated that alcohol will be served at the end-of-year/holiday party. One- half (51%) of organizations regulate alcohol consumption at these parties. Do some organizations prohibit drinking alcohol at work-related events? Slightly more than one-third (35%)of organizations indicated that they did not have a formal or an informal policy that covered consumption of alcohol at work-related events.
