Did you receive a holiday bonus this year? If not, you're not alone. Of course, many people are happy just to have a job but those who do are less likely than ever to have received something extra with their year-end paychecks. A new study says over forty percent of businesses no longer offer holiday bonuses. That's partly due to the economy, which is causing many firms to rein in their spending. But it's also because companies are looking at new employee compensation models, like year-round performance-based bonuses instead of end-of-year payments.
