With the holidays upon us it’s the time of year when our employer throws us a holiday party. While it’s great to mingle with coworkers in a more relaxed atmosphere, there are still rules to follow. Below is a list found on Yahoo of things NOT to do at “the company Christmas party”. The link to the full article is below.
Don’t arrive late – have a chance to chat with your boss and other executives before the party is in full swing. You may not have a chance later.
Don’t be a wallflower – Branch out and introduce yourself to others in the company. You can talk to your cubicle neighbor everyday.
Don’t lose control – Watch the alcohol consumption! Even though it’s a party, it’s a company party and there are people watching. One or two drinks is acceptable.
Don’t show up the boss – If you’re talking to your boss about something you know more about than him/her, don’t let her know.
Don’t tell racy jokes – Your brand of humor may not mesh with other people’s brand of humor. The office party is not one to repeat such jokes.
