Did your boss turn up for the office Christmas lunch this year? I mean the big boss.
If you happen to be a security guard at Stamford Bridge, then we already know the answer to that.
Figures are unavailable on how many other Premier League managers did the same, but take an educated guess...
I once worked for a very large organisation, with over 3000 staff on-site, where the chief exec would spend at least an hour a day getting to know his staff.
I would say he was the best boss I ever had: and a good few among those 3000 would say the same.
But that wasn't what he was after.
He wanted a sense of community were everybody felt part of a family, working for the same goals.
My old boss had a telephone number salary – though those big numbers turned up in his bank account once a year, rather than once a week as in Conte's case.
But it is exactly the same sort of routine which seems to be important to Chelsea's new boss, as he marks his first half season in charge.
That staff Christmas party he attended – the one no Chelsea manager has set foot in since the days of Carlo Ancelotti – will have been enlivened by his presence.
Not because he's a celeb, and the groundsmen and chief stewards and box office staff seldom see him.
But because he shared his time with people who can so often feel remote from those in charge.
And, by the way, this was no five-minute grip and grin: he stayed for two hours.
The post press conference pub trip he also recently shared with journalists was a different side of the same coin, of course.
This is external comms done as internal comms: PR at work, yes, but a taking down of the barricades (and there are few with Conte, to be honest) at Christmas, so everyone can get a better feel of who they are dealing with.
I was busy peeling sprouts when all this happened, but I understand it was very convivial: as we have all seen, Conte is a very open, engaging and pleasant to be with guy.
Plus he got his round in (or, at least, the club PR department did on his behalf).
This may seem to some like a mere footnote: far less important than schooling Diego Costa in how not to get yellow cards, or reprogramming Victor Moses as a wingback.
But details are what make a success of any business, or of any team.
Jose Mournho may have been all smiles when he returned to Chelsea.
But the reality was a prickly relationship with staff, almost from day one, which descended to an almost unworkable situation by the time he left.
Some have mentioned an atmosphere towards the end where people feared making eye-contact with him in the corridors of Cobham – so fearful were they of the response it might elicit.
Chelsea is a happy place right now: and why wouldn't it be, when the club is on a record-breaking winning run, and the team is playing such sublime football?
But don't underestimate the value of Conte's smiling, flesh-pressing, attentive, name-knowing presence.
He is, in a very literal sense, a different class.
