Holiday parties are making a comeback …Those lavish holiday office parties have been scaled back over the last several years, with some companies getting rid of them altogether. But new research has found that holiday parties are making a comeback. The survey of HR reps revealed that 7% more companies are planning a holiday party this year than last year, and 76% of all the companies surveyed are planning to hold a party this year. Last year, 65% of companies surveyed had a holiday party, the lowest percentage since 2010, when just 64% of firms threw a holiday party. (24/7 Wall St)

Job hoppin’ …A new survey has revealed that Millennials change jobs … a lot. According to the survey, the average Millennial has already had six jobs.
