Is Corporate America Still in the Holiday Spirit?

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Restaurants on the Run ( will be hosting a holiday party for all of their employees this year.  Last year, while they did contribute to their preferred charity, they opted not to have an organized holiday event. They realized later, that by cancelling the holiday party, they missed a great opportunity for employees to come together, share thoughts and be appreciated for a year of hard work. "The holiday party is a great way for us to show our employees that they are truly valued and appreciated thereby increasing employee morale, which is a core value at our company," according to Melanie Rensburg, ROTR Human Resources Generalist.  

Much like ROTR, many companies are still reluctant to spend money this season on a big, fancy party or dinner for employees.  Companies that typically held parties at restaurants are scaling back and moving the parties on site.  Even worse, some businesses have decided to forgo parties altogether.  When looking at the financial statement, this type of cut back makes perfect sense.  However when looked at through the eyes of your people, the savings rarely look as attractive.  It is no secret that employees with higher morale have a better attitude, maintain higher customer service levels and are far more productive.  Any kind of low key holiday party, held on company premises, would be just as effective in showing your people how much you value them.

ROTR is the conscientious choice to celebrate your employees this holiday season.  Their specially-trained Priority Care Experts are ready to provide a variety of delicious options that work on any budget.  Visit to find a featured selection of holiday menus and solutions available to fit your company's catering needs.
