Stress-testing before celebrating a virtual office Christmas  

Christmas traditionally brings a round of festive celebrations for customers and employees, but with current Covid-19 restrictions, companies are having to re-think drinks and dinners for customers and learn how to stage a virtual staff party.

A recent poll[1] found that 26%…
