Information systems professionals working the weekend of December 31 through January 2 can forget that New Year's party. In lieu of spirits and camaraderie, however, they may receive extra pay, compensatory time off, and other special privileges.

A new survey by William M. Mercer, Incorporated finds that almost half (47%) of the 272 companies surveyed have special rewards in store for those going the extra mile to keep Y2K problems at bay.

The survey, "Year 2000 Practices: Y2K Weekend," reports additional compensation packages range from 5% to 25% of base pay, with the average at 13%. Employers are throwing in edibles (49%), sleeping quarters (34%), and transportation (14%) as well.
