While colleagues are gathering in person more often this year than last, there is a noticeable shift in how—especially when it comes to celebrations. Instead of big, catered events, most organizations are opting for small sit-down meals. Instead of in-office gift exchanges, groups are gathering outdoors. 

Not only are these options safer, they also seem to provide a morale boost compared to the huge holiday parties of years past. A small group gathering means less small talk and more meaningful conversation; an ice skating party offers more movement and, likely, a lot of laughs. Holiday cheer is alive and well in Kendall, so let’s celebrate our new spin not just through year end, but year round!
