As we have polled several of our clients, we are noticing that more and more CEOs are not sending out holiday messages. We are not sure if it is lack of time or by choice that they are moving a way from the end of the year well wishes.
Some have stated that the CEOs are leaving this up to the managers because it can become more specific to what the employee has actually done throughout the year. Others say that their CEO prefers to give a welcome back message after the New Year. This message is said to set the tone for the year.
Who is to say which school of thought is correct. It is our thought that it depends on several factors. The culture, the type of news that needs to be shared, and the current level of employee morale.
What is your opinion of the CEO sending out a holiday message? We would love to hear your feedback.
