Perks and Company Parties Stage a Comeback

1. Company parties stage a comeback as economy recovers and dark mood easesSource.

"With growing signs of an economic recovery, Chicago employers are again warming up to holiday parties. After two years of cutbacks, layoffs, bailouts and outright bankruptcies, the return of this annual ritual signals that corporate managers are more confident about business prospects and feel a need to invest again in morale, reward and recognition."

2. Perks at work are reappearing.  Source.

"Miss the free office soft drinks, commuter subsidies — and yes, even those year-end holiday parties? Don't despair. The workplace perk is beginning to make a comeback. During the recession, many cost-conscious companies furloughed fringe benefits such as holiday fetes, bonuses and free snacks. But now that the economy is improving, some perks are slowly being reinstated."
