It's holiday season! Here are some do's or don'ts of company holiday parties -- via Madamenoire.com.
DO ACT WITH COMMON SENSE
Please don’t let the social atmosphere fool you as company holiday parties are still affiliated with your company. When attending any event, make sure you exhibit professionalism at all times. While it’s okay to let your hair down and enjoy yourself, don’t get so comfy that you disclose personal information that will make people give you the side eye.
DON’T TREAT IT LIKE A BUSINESS MEETING
Geez talk about vibe killer! Do you know of anyone in your office who can’t seem to separate themselves from the world of business? While you should be professional during company holiday parties, that doesn’t in any way mean you lose your social bug. Take some time to walk around the party and see what people are talking about. Chances are there will probably be little to no serious conversations about work as people want to have a good time. Try not to be a Debbie Downer.
DO RETHINK THAT OUTFIT
Even if you are one stylish person around the office, it’s probably not a good idea to wear your freakum dress to an office party. Do you really think something like that is appropriate to a work-related function? Even if you do, please rethink your wardrobe choice as you don’t need to attract certain attention to yourself around the office. Sure no one expects you to wear a power suit. But please oh please say no to outfits with plunging necklines, short hemlines and anything else that could be considered questionable.
DON’T SHOW YOUR DRINKING SKILLS
For heaven’s sake please try to contain your desire to drink excessively at a company party. There will be tons of opportunities to do so on your own time and away from co-workers. Even if alcohol is served, drink responsibly.
DO EAT BEFORE ARRIVING
Unless stated, most holiday parties involve some edibles (generally appetizer-sizes) and drinks for the taking. Though you should sample the things that interest you, it’s good practice with work-related events to eat a little something ahead of time so you aren’t stuffing your face at the party. Even if it’s a small meal, having something in your stomach will also help you in the alcohol department.
DON’T ISOLATE OTHERS
One of the reasons why companies host holiday parties is because they want their employees to socialize. Get out and mingle with people you know and don’t know around the office. It’s so easy to get caught up in our own groups that we fail to consider others could be just as much fun.
DO BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST ONLINE
If you are a Facebook junkie or social media queen, proceed with some caution when it comes to the holiday party and what you post online. Though it should generally be okay to upload a photo with your co-workers, be careful not to post too much as you might be in violation of company policies. It’s always best to ask ahead of time to make sure what’s okay and what’s not.
DON’T GET INAPPROPRIATE
Just because you are at a holiday party does not mean it’s the right time to break out off-colored jokes and comments. Let’s not forget that this is still a company social which means you need to watch certain things you say. Topics that focus on religion and politics for example should not be brought up.
DO HAVE FUN
Enjoy yourself at company holiday parties as it’s a fun chance to mingle with co-workers and management. Even if you find yourself a busy during this time don’t pass it up as opportunities like this tend to come a few times a year or season.
