More business holiday parties this year show improving economy

Businesses are rejoicing in the current economic climate and holiday parties are an indication of this. A recent survey by Challenger Gray Christmas showed that 83 percent of businesses plan to have a Christmas party, up from 68 percent last year.

Small business owners are encouraged to build morale with a holiday party. They can make up for the costs later on by utilizing the benefits of self storage. Units are available to clean out an office and streamline business operations.

While holiday parties are not the strongest indicator of an improving economy, experts do say it's a good sign.

“Consumer confidence is a big part of what happens economically, and the holiday party is the canary in the mine shaft for consumer confidence,” said Rick Cobb, executive at Challenger Gray Christmas. “Companies willing to throw the party means they feel guardedly optimistic. They feel like things are okay and have a chance to get better.”

Jiffy offers businesses plenty of options for Toronto storage, whether one needs to store filing cabinets or office supplies. What's more, the company is currently holding a contest for a new iPad 3, which is a device that just about every business person could use to help improve productivity.
