- Turn up!
Make an appearance, show you're part of the team and appreciate the effort in making the night special
- Dress Appropriately
Enquire on the dress code and follow it, stay away from slinky dresses and ill-fitting suits, make sure you can wear your shoes all night
Chat with your colleagues. Now is the time to get to know the people you spend the most time with. Shake hands, chat about life outside of work.
Don't participate in workplace gossip. It can be more harmful than you anticipate and will come back into the office after the party.
- Get drunk
A few drinks is fine if they're supplied. Don't over-do it. Nothing is worse than a hangover except the stories that your colleagues will remember come January.
- Leave too early
A lot of effort goes into preparing the Christmas party. Stay as long as you can and don't leave too early.
