Used to be that year-end bonuses were pretty much a lock for most workers. Not any more.
Corporate America has moved away from bonuses in recent years and 2011 will be no different.
In a recent survey by the global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, 43 percent of HR executives said their companies do not hand out bonuses. That’s a big jump from 2007 when only 28 percent of companies did not give holiday bonuses.
Of the companies that do award year-end bonuses, half give non-monetary gifts or a monetary award of less than $100, the survey found.
