Nearly three in four employers plan to hand out year-end bonuses in 2012, according to a new survey by Chicago-based outplacement giant Challenger, Gray & Christmas. That’s quite a boost from last year, when only 53% of firms planned to hand out year-end rewards.
Not everyone will get a big pile of cash, however. The survey found that 14% of respondents plan to give bonuses of $100 or less and 13% said they would give employees a gift other than money to show their appreciation.  Still, 72% of companies plan to give their employees something for the holidays this year.
