Skip the party, give a bonus?

Holiday office parties can be fun, but most employees would really rather have some cash. That's according to an annual survey on the career site

The group polled thousands of Americans with full-time job, and found 73 percent would rather ditch the holiday party and get a bonus instead.

Five percent want to socialize with colleagues.

Preferences aside, you'd better get your best party outfit ready anyway: More than 80 percent of companies are planning a holiday party this year. That's according to a separate survey by an international outplacement and consulting firm.

That number is up from 68 percent of companies holding holiday parties last year.
