The HR Guide to Christmas in the Workplace

Alan Kitto

The Starbucks Christmas cups have been launched so it must be that time of year again for HR to declare 'Bah Humbug' and remind everyone of the minefield of potential HR challenges that Christmas can bring.

Typically the challenges come from four main areas:

  2. Annual leave requests are often concentrated at Christmas when a company only closes on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day as employees look to spend as much time with their families as they can.
