Tis' the season for the company holiday party. This is the time of year for employers to end the year showing their employees how much they appreciated their service. Although this is the time to loosen up and enjoy your co-workers' company outside of the work environment, there are some rules of etiquette that you must keep in mind when attending this event.
1. Wear appropriate attire- Although this is usually an after-work event, please be mindful that you are in the company of your superior and colleagues. You still have an office image to maintain.
2. Limit alcohol consumption- Nothing is worse than being the topic of office gossip. Well, Holiday parties are a major source for office chatter. It is never a good look to be inebriated in a public setting, but it is even worse to be highly intoxicated around them people who you need to maintain a level of respect from every day.
3. Have fun!!! - The purpose of the party is to have fun and enjoy the company of your co-workers! No one is saying that you have to be stiff during the party, but just be mindful of your behavior. It is the season to be jolly, just enjoy yourself with proper etiquette!
