How should I behave at my office holiday party?

Many workers in Missouri will be attending holiday parties throughout this month. While spending quality time with co-workers can be a great way to strengthen bonds and access opportunities, it can also land you in hot water if you're not careful. That’s why The Muse offers the following tips, which can help you navigate your work’s holiday party without incident.

Don’t drink too much

While it’s ok to enjoy an adult beverage with your co-workers, you want to steer clear of having too much to drink. Inhibitions will be lowered the more alcohol you drink, which can cause you to act in ways you may regret later. Two drinks are usually the best to avoid making a poor impression on your co-workers. Bad behavior could come back to haunt you for many years, or even jeopardize your position.

Dress appropriately

Whether an event is a dress-up occasion or casual, you want to make sure you fit in. Wearing inappropriate or potentially offensive items could raise the ire of fellow employees, as well as management. If you’re unsure of the dress code, be sure to ask someone in the know. Even when you are sure, it’s always best to err on the side of caution to make sure your outfit is well-received.

Mind your behavior

These days, just about anything may be uploaded to social media. As a result, be sure to mind your behavior so you don’t end up being broadcast far and wide. Even if it’s all in good fun, your actions could be misconstrued by others, or even be thought of as offensive. When it comes to others, never upload pictures or videos without their express permission.
