Secret Santa for the digital age

With more and more reports of employers cutting back on festive activities, the Trades Union Congress has launched an online Secret Santa generator to help keep the Christmas spirit alive at work.

It’s common practice in many offices for staff to agree to buy each other presents secretly, so that no one knows which of their colleagues bought the present they received. This year, instead of putting everyone’s name in a hat, the organiser can visit www.workSMART.org.uk/santa and enter the email addresses of everyone taking part. The Secret Santa generator will then email each colleague telling them who to buy a secret present for.

TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber, said: “Staff should say no to Scrooge bosses who are trying to cut back on Christmas at work. Our Secret Santa is a handy way of making sure one important part of the office festivities doesn’t become a thing of Christmas past.”
