According to Huffington Post lore, the following type of conversation is more than occasionally possible:
Loyal staffer #1: “How many years have you been with the company?”
Loyal staffer #2: “Well, I have four different HuffPo-issued Christmas sweaters…”
When The Huffington Post first launched, Arianna had to worry about seasonally shopping for just five people. This year, for the first time, her warm and fuzzy gifting crossed into four Yuletide digits.
“At the end of 2012, HuffPost had around 700 employees and all of them received a sweater,” Arianna explains. “This year that number has grown to a little over 1,000 together with fellows and people who touch our daily lives at HuffPost like the janitorial staff, doormen and security.”
