The 2006 holiday season has just ended, but you need to start planning for next year’s holiday work schedule if you haven’t already. A new Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) survey says that, compared with 2006, more employers plan to close up shop the day after Thanksgiving and on Christmas Eve next year.

The details:

  • 72 percent plan to close their workplaces the day after Thanksgiving in 2007, compared with 63 percent last year.
  • 48 percent plan to close on Christmas Eve (a Monday) in 2007, compared with 29 percent last year (on a Sunday).
  • 96 percent plan to close New Year’s Day in 2007 versus 88 percent that did so this year.
