OFFICE HOLIDAY PARTY MISTAKES TO AVOID

Ah, the holidays! Tis the season for mixing with your weary co-workers and gratis booze while dressing festive and trying to remember the names of your co-workers spouses. Office holiday parties are a time to wrap up a good year of hard work and enjoy holiday merriment with the people you pass by in the halls every day. Whether this year’s party will turn out to be fun or awkward, what really matters is that no one is talking about you the following Monday. So in an attempt to keep you off the office’s naughty list, here are a few office holiday party mistakes to avoid.

1. Don’t over drink and tell everyone what you really think. While it’s tempting to throw back a few cocktails to take the edge off, drinking too much and losing your composure or professional discretion can be disastrous. Just because you’re in a different environment and it’s a party, always remember that certain rules and boundaries must be kept when socially interacting with co-workers. Drinking too much can lead you to say things you wouldn’t normally share if you were in the office.

2. Don’t hit on your colleagues spouse or mature looking son. Keeping up professional graces amidst drunken holiday festivities can be a challenge, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t practice sound and good judgment. Refrain from hitting on your colleagues spouse or any member of your colleagues family. While you’re at the party to enjoy yourself, socialize and have a great time with the people you work with, remember that an office holiday party is not a bar. Nor is it the kind of place where you should be trying to make a love connection. Save it for the clubs.

3. Don’t enforce the mistletoe rule. It’s totally inappropriate to kiss your boss, assistant, co-worker, or any of their significant others at all times.
