Holiday Christmas Party Tips for Employees

November 16th, 2017

Philadelphia Employment Lawyers provide useful tips for employees attending a company holiday party. It’s that time of year again when businesses send out invitations to the holiday work party. Although, on the surface, these events can offer good food, entertainment, and the chance to spend some carefree time with co-workers, they can also be tricky to navigate. Here are a few tips for surviving and enjoying the holiday work party.

  • Say yes to the invitation. Although you may be tempted to turn it down, doing so could hurt your reputation. Spend at least 30 minutes there, but don’t be the last one to leave.
  • Make it strictly business. Although the holiday office party is meant as a social event, it should be regarded as strictly business.
  • Remember this is a work function. You may be tempted to vent or blow off steam, but this is a work event, and you must treat it that way. Dress appropriately, use proper etiquette, and maintain appropriate behavior.
  • Keep conversations positive and upbeat. You shouldn’t talk business all night, but do keep your tone happy and optimistic. Be the person everyone wants to converse with.
  • Moderation is important. The food and drinks may be flowing, but you must be a gracious guest who is considerate of others. Don’t cut in line, and most of all, limit your alcohol consumption.
  • Use this time to network. Take time to meet new people and to reconnect with those you haven’t seen in a while. Introduce yourself to key people you haven’t met. You should show interest in others, show your belief in the company, and always put your best foot forward.
  • Know who is invited. Some office parties allow you to bring a spouse or significant other, and some do not. If you do bring someone along, make sure that person is appropriate.
  • Don’t drink and drive. Some employers will offer a cab service to those who have been drinking, and others do not. Therefore, it is important to designate a driver or hire a cab service to take you home if you have had more than one drink.
