It comes as no surprise that with the ever-growing concern over the economy, businesses nationwide have been forced to scale back on employee benefits; one major casualty of this has been the company holiday party. A recent survey showed that roughly one-fifth of businesses are trimming holiday festivities, marking the lowest percentage of office parties the U.S. has seen in 20 years.
“Kahlúa has been a welcome guest at many a holiday party and, given the current state of the economy, we thought it the perfect time to return the favor,” says Melissa Frank, Global Brand Director for Kahlúa. ‘This is a great opportunity to save a seasonal staple and help employees and their companies plan fun, festive events that promote curiosity and discovery, which is really what Kahlúa is all about.”
If your company has canceled its holiday festivities, you may be eligible for a “bailout” grant from Kahlúa. One business in each of the five eligible states (Texas, Colorado, Massachusetts, Georgia and Illinois) will receive $10,000 and a Kahlúa Party in A Box to throw a wild holiday party. No idea why only five states are eligible, but ya know. So tell Kahlúa why your company deserves a holiday bailout.
