Tis the season for holiday parties, expected bonuses and over indulging. The time of year when individuals in corporate and private employment sectors have their annual holiday Christmas parties. A setting where you are sure to find out the “other side” of the people you work with, especially when alcohol is freely flowing. And when people start drinking and having a good time, it altars their personality, changes their attitude and boost their mood considerably. Have you witnessed these transformations from your co-workers and colleagues?
This is what happens when you over-indulge, over-indulging may be the number one cause of inappropriate remarks and behavior at these holiday office parties. Remember, you have to face all of these people when you go back to work, so it’s important to leave a good impression but some people don’t!!!!
Here are the following DON’T’s at your holiday party:
Find out before your office party what most people are wearing. You don’t want to show up in a casual outfit if everyone else is dressed to the nines. Make sure your spouse or date has this information.
Be conservative in your dress if you are a woman. Shockingly short dresses or low plunging necklines are not appropriate for this type of business occasion. So you don’t want to dress like a hooker.
Avoid drinking too much because you don’t want to embarrass yourself.
Take a cab home or use a designated driver if you have been drinking because you don’t want to drink and drive.
And we’ll discuss the rest of “Office party etiquette” on “Conversations Of A Sistah” this Thursday December 14th at 8:00 P.M.
