Why do people have this perception?
Why I ask...I was planning a Christmas party for my employees..1 big party..a private room at a very nice place with outstanding food. When I say nice place I don't mean black tie, my hubby took me there a couple of weeks ago and I wore capris/sandals. It is nice meaning more expensive food/decor and such.
I let everyone know what/when/where. One of the ladies then came to me and asked if I could change the location. Anyhoo after talking to her for a bit I discovered a number of the girls were not comfortable going to this place because it is "nice." I won't go into the conversation more because I do feel it was private. Honestly though, it made me so sad! The people that work for me are wonderful and they deserve a nice meal in a nice place just as much as anyone else.
Why do we do this to ourselves though? Why do we perceive "better".
It's a nice thing that your employees can confide in you. But you have to be careful how much you change. Are these just a few employees??? Does the overall majority feel comfortable and looking forward to a party at this location? You may offend others who are looking forward to a nice party. It's sad that their personal struggles are interfering with them enjoying themselves. I think in the era of budget cuts, rollbacks, and financial dismay~ a company that can give bonuses AND a Christmas Party is a WONDERFUL thing.
