Thirty-six percent of organizations said these parties will be held on-site. Do organizations participate in gift exchanges during the end-of-year/holiday season? Nearly one-half (48%) of organizations do not participate in gift exchanges. The other one-half participate in a gift exchange within each department (45%), 5%, participate in a companywide exchange, and 2% participate in both departmental and companywide girt exchanges.
