Work Christmas Party Do's and Don'ts

3 Do's
 
  • 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
     
  • Mingle
    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.
     
3 Dont's
 
  • Gossip
    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.
