US Weather Insurance will celebrate a great year with dinner and socializing at their company party tonight! It’s promised to be a fun night and fortunately for our company, parties are always controlled with no unexpected surprises. This, however, is not the case for many business parties; recently abc news did an article on five tips to remember this holiday season so you don’t embarrass yourself at the company party.
The first and most obvious is to control how much you drink, even though it is a party, you still have to remain professional. This article recommends a two drink maximum, enough to be social and have fun but you don’t want to take it too far! Next is who you chose to bring as your date. Best option is always your spouse if you have one or a serious boyfriend/girlfriend. Someone you met a week ago or your crazy roommate might not be the best option to make a positive impression on your co-workers. The next two tips go somewhat hand and hand, for the ladies- still dress appropriately; you can still look nice and formal without revealing too much. For the guys- don’t let your eyes wander, the article discusses one male employee that was fired due to sexual harassment charges stemmed from the company party! Lastly, don’t stay late night, end the night with a good impression and leave. Be sure to keep these in mind this holiday season and have fun!
