Are you ready to party like it's ... 2019?

Four years ago, on the eve of the pandemic, 76% of companies in a national survey were planning corporate holiday parties. That was the most since 2016, according to the poll by global human resources consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas, which has been conducting the research annually since 2004.

In 2020, just 5% of companies gathered for the holidays at in-person galas. In 2021, as COVID vaccines were starting to become available, the percentage of partiers increased to 27%.

Last year, perhaps in a sign that the economy was approaching something like normal, the share of companies with holiday celebrations surged to 57%.
